Morrison earns U's a point

Morrison earns U's a point

Colchester 1-1 Sheff United

Colchester drew their second game at The WHCS in a matter of days, fighting back to earn an impressive point against Sheffield United.

The U's had already managed to clear one effort off the line before John Cofie (17) gave Sheffield United the lead. Man United loanee Cofie should have added another with Colchester keeper Mark Cousins also saving the home side more than once.

Former Sheffield Wednesday man Clinton Morrison (72) rescued Colchester a point in the second half, which could have been more but for the post denying The U's late on.

Sheffield United had a late chance to win the game but Cousins again saved to ensure the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
