Williams: We Were 'Organised'

Williams: We Were 'Organised'

Colchester United manager Geraint Williams felt his side 'were well organised' after a 1-1 away draw with Leicester City.

Iain Hume struck in the 89th minute to cancel out Kevin Lisbie's earlier header, as the relegated U's put in an impressive performance.

'It was almost a classic away win. I was disappointed in the first half with the way we used the ball,' Williams said post-match.

'I felt that contributed to Leicester putting us under pressure because we didn't use the ball very well when we got it.

'We tried to be more positive and use the ball better, which I thought we did, and we looked more of a threat coming forward in the second half.'

He added: 'I felt there was a marked difference today. We were well organised, we weren't under the cosh and Dean (Gerken) wasn't having to make save after save.

'It's an improvement and that's what we're looking to do between now and the end of the season so that next year we start well and can go on and be successful.'

Meanwhile one disappointed City fan ran on to the pitch brandishing his season ticket towards the home dugout, Foxes' boss Ian Holloway said: 'I understand how people care, if my players didn't try as hard as they can then I would be very, very upset.'

'He pays his money, he makes his choice but if he wants to demonstrate that way I suggest he walks around the pitch at the end of the game and we have a chat and a cup of coffee.

'At the end of the day, stay off the pitch because normally that leads to a lifetime ban and I don't want anybody that cares for Leicester City being treated like that.

'It's a good job I don't feel as nervous as he does because then we would be in trouble.'

Holloway was understandably frustrated to see Barry Hayles' effort ruled out for offside: 'Unfortunately for us again he was onside but the linesman saw his blue shirt. I've just been in to see the referee to show him the footage we get.

'It's not about that though, is it? It's about us putting the chances in that we create, some of them will be disallowed.

'You cannot afford to miss the chances that we miss. They have to go in and they have to start going in now. It's as simple as that.'
