Colchester draw following late Derby leveller

Colchester draw following late Derby leveller

Colchester came from behind to lead Derby but in the end had to be content with a draw as pre-season continued.

Early on a mistake at the back allowed Derby to take the lead but Sears got The U's level. He then finished smartly to give Colchester a lead!

Victory was looking on for The U's but with almost the last kick of the game Derby scored to secure a 2-2 draw.

A Colchester win, over a Championship opponent, would have been a real bonus but as is often said little can really be taken from pre-season results so another run-out is the main thing of this.
