COLCHESTER United boss Aidy Boothroyd was satisfied with his side's point following today's 1-1 draw at Swindon Town.
Ashley Vincent broke the deadlock for the U's midway through the first half, but Temitope Obadeyi equalised on the stroke of half-time.
Boothroyd said: “Swindon are a good side. I've seen them play several times. They have a nice balance and I think they will be up there at the end, so this was a good gauge for us, as was Southampton away (0-0) the previous week.
You may also want to watch:
“We dug in, and when you do that you have a chance of nicking it at the end. If we had defended better from our own corner (leading to Obadeyi's equaliser), then we'd probably be going home with all three points.
“However, it could have gone either way at the end. Two points out of my first two games isn't great, but it's a start and something for us to build on. We have showed that we are difficult to beat,” added Boothroyd.
