Colchester 1-1 Huddersfield

Colchester United missed a late penalty and then scored a last-gasp own goal as they threw away two points to draw with Huddersfield Town.

The U's led within three minutes when Steven Gillespie closed down Alex Smithies' attempted clearance and the ball looped into the goal.

Smithies kept the visitors in the game when he saved Anthony Wordsworth's penalty in the 88th minute.

And seven minutes later, Magnus Okuonghae headed into his own net.


Huddersfield Town manager Simon Grayson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"Sometimes you think it's not going to be your day when it gets so late on but that point today feels like a victory.

"It's the very least we deserve, this is probably the best game we played in terms of dominating for large periods of time.

"We're in good spirits after that and it could be a vital point come the end of season."
