Colchester 1-1 Sheffield Utd

Clinton Morrison's goal rescued a draw for Colchester as they earned a point against Sheffield United.

The Blades took the lead after John Cofie found the top corner of the net with a fierce strike from long range.

Tony McMahon fired just wide from the edge of the area for the visitors before Morrison levelled from close range for U's.

Late on Colchester's Andy Bond and Sheffield United's McMahon both hit the woodwork as the game ended level.

Wilson annoyed with Blades draw

"I'm more frustrated, I'm very annoyed, because that game is there to be won but I'll take nothing away from Colchester.

"I thought we created enough chances to win a host of games and we haven't converted them.

"We've not been clinical enough in front of goal and then to concede like that is disappoinitng. It was a very sloppy goal."
