A point was fully deserved but we could have had more.
Kayode Odejayi was within a whisker on two occasions of scorin g the winner and looked strong and certainly worth a start at the Withdean on Tuesday.
As you would expect Huddersfield were under pressure to atone for the debacle at Brunton Park in the JPT and were fiirng on all cylinders early doors. Colchester's defence were more than equal to the threat and although Williams had saves to make they failed to put the U's under sustained pressure.
Ben Coker in only his second game looks assured and shows a confidence in his play that has already made Tierney redundant.
Heath and Rio are forming a strong partnership and Lee Beevers (Mr versatile) performed very well and once he begun to tire made way for John White.
In midfield, Andy Bond didn't have one of his strongest days but could have scored in the first half. David Perkins was once again a terrier (no pun intended) and won many duels that he had no right to win.
Ashley Vincent unfortunately tires but shows that hsi pace can unsettle defences.
Mooney works tirelessly and covers every blade of grass (on what was a heavy pitch) but is lacking confidence at present having failed to score recently.
Woody was in and out of the game and didn't get the chance to take any trademark freekicks.
The captain is struggling at present and I would like to see Lloyd James play in his place from the start.
The Colchester faithful were largely quiet today as the Pink Link stand reverberated to the Huddersfield faithful who were noisy for 80 minutes out of the 90.
Prat of the day - Huddersfield Town manager who did his best to imitate Mancini of Man City complete with scarf - he never achieved it and his constant moaning and berating players and officials was tiresome in the extreme.
Disappointment - the league table never lies except when we have played three games less than many of our rivals. When the 46 games have been played we will comfortably be in one of the top six positions.
Now we want Wilson and O'Toole back and fit and quick.
Up the U's
