U's boss Dunne disappointed not to win at Bristol City
Joe Dunne admitted he was disappointed Colchester United were unable to claim all three points from their game at Bristol City this afternoon.
But the U's boss was nevertheless pleased with his side's performance in securing a 1-1 draw at Ashton Gate.
Colchester, without 11 players due to injury, illness and suspension, secured their third successive draw in League One, after Matt Taylor's opener was cancelled out by Sam Baldock's second-half strike.
Jabo Ibehre had a great chance to win the game for Colchester in stoppage-time but was denied by a last-ditch tackle by Derrick Williams, after racing through on goal.
Dunne said: "I've told the players that I think we can be disappointed we’ve drawn, because we had a couple of great opportunities at the end to win it.
“However, that shows the progression that we’re making.
“It could have gone either way in the last 15 minutes.
“We tweaked the system a bit in that period where they scored to cope and generally, I don’t think our goalkeeper has had a lot to do.
“We adopted a different tactic for the game and it was very pleasing, from a staff point of view."
