Yeates Feels He Should Have Added To Tally

Yeates Feels He Should Have Added To Tally

MARK YEATES, Colchester United's Irish magician, believes he should have left the Walkers Stadium with a brace of goals to his name, on Saturday.

However, the former Tottenham Hotspur youngster did manage to score once against Leicester, as the U's drew 1-1. The 24-year-old curled home a perfectly flighted free-kick beyond the reach of Tony Warner in the home goal. To read Vital Colchester's match report, click here.

Yeates revealed that The Foxes' loanee stopper Warner denied him a second goal, when clean through, by saving with his face!

Following the game, Yeates told the EADT: 'I should have scored a second goal, but the keeper ended up saving that one with his face!'

'He (Warner) is a very good keeper, but he didn't know much about that one. I got through on goal, and felt that I should have scored, but then he was their man-of-the-match,' the U's man highlighted how he thought Warner put in a man-of-the-match display.

Yeates, before joining the U's permanently, nearly two years ago, spent a temporary three-month spell with Leicester.

He expressed his delight at scoring against his former employers: 'It's always nice to go back to one of your old clubs and score, so I was happy to curl home that free-kick.'

Yeates is currently the U's leading marksmen this season, with ten goals to his name.

'I've scored several free-kicks since I've been at Colchester, but we all feel that this is one game that got away. The fans will be happy that we gave a good account of ourselves, but this was two points dropped,' he concluded.


So should Yeates have scored twice?
