Colchester might have bowed out of the Carling Cup but John Ward, as he told The East Anglian Times, was still relatively happy.
At 2-0 down Colchester fought back to level and then move 3-2 ahead, although Wycombe equalised and eventually won through 5-4 on penalties.
Ward was obviously disappointed to lose, although he took the positives from defeat: 'we played some very good football, from our point of view and our supporters.
'It is just disappointing for the lads that we will sit and watch that Cup draw on Thursday night and think what might have been. But it's not for us.
'There were two good teams trying to play really good attractive football, and you would have been hard pushed to discover which league this was, if you turned up. It was pretty good football for the third tier of any country.
'It was a test for the team, going two behind, as were Preston`s goals coming back against us on Saturday.'
In two away games so far this season, having struggled for goals away last season, Colchester have managed 7 and that pleases Ward: 'away from home we have scored seven goals in the last two matches, so it`s so far, so good.'
The focus now turns to the weekend, and a return to league one action.
Funnily enough The U's will face Wycombe again: 'we will now focus our attention to Saturday, when we take on the same side again.'
