Two points out of six for Aidy Boothroyd as Colchester United manager may not sound great but like the man himself says 'It's a start.'
The U's 1-1 draw with Swindon followed last weekend's hard-fought point against Southampton.
'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, then we'd probably be going home with all three points,' Boothroyd admitted, post-match.
The U's led after 20 or so minutes, with Ashley Vincent knocking Kevin Lisbie's flick-on past the Town 'keeper, only for the hosts to draw level before the break.
And Boothroyd optimistically concluded: '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.
So what do you think?
