Ward: A really strong team performance

Colchester's unbeaten run was extended with a draw at home against promotion chasing Sheffield Untied on Tuesday, a point that John Ward was very happy with.

Ward has praised a 'strong team performance' and thought a draw was the least his side deserved: 'it was a really strong team performance by us.

'Steven Gillespie finished well for his goal but it was a strong second-half performance from us which was necessary.

'I thought that we were a little bit anxious with the ball in the first half. We worked exceptionally hard and had good shape and attitude but we just needed to be a bit better with the football.

'I thought in the second half the goal helped us a bit and it resorted a little bit of confidence. They went into slight disarray after we scored but we couldn't find a second one.'
