Kicking-off the season with a point at Preston wouldn't have been bad, so to see Colchester manage this means the 2012/13 season didn't start badly.
The sides played out a goalless first half, so it was "as you were" after 45-minutes.
In fact the game ended as it started, with a 0-0 draw...

As said a point would have been taken by most before the game, so it's not a bad result with Mark Cousins' saves earning The U's this.
