COLCHESTER United manager Aidy Boothroyd was left bitterly disappointed with his side's inability to beat a Tranmere Rovers side that had previously gone six league games without a point.

“We have enough in our squad to come here and get a result and we didn't,” said the U's boss. “We are better than what we showed today.

“It was a little bit too open. There was lots of competitive spirit, but we were a little bit wayward, like a flailing boxer that throws their punches rather than picking their moments.

“I can make excuses about the referee not giving us anything all game, but that would just be an excuse. We are in charge of our own destiny and I have to accept that Tranmere deserved what they got.”
