U's Fail To Shine In Dull Game

Colchester United were held to a disappointing pre-season draw by non-league side Braintree Town.

The U's failed to really test the Town defence throughout the 90 minutes, with a lack of attacking threat and creativity.

Anthony Wordsworth's first-half curling free-kick narrowly swung wide of the back post and Ashley Vincent saw his close range effort saved in the game's best chances.

John Ward's U's side will now to look for a more convincing performance in their remaining pre-season friendlies ahead of the new season's kick-off.

U's: Williams(Marshall 46), White(Wilson 68), Heath, Okuonghae(Reid 68), Maybury(Tierney 68), Beevers(Izzet 63), James(Bond 63), Wordsworth(Perkins 63), Gillespie(Henderson 49(Vincent 58)) , Platt(Corcoran 84), Elito(Hackney 46).

Subs Not Used: Rafter, Odejayi, Cousins.
