Healey levelled after turning into space in the penalty area and firing a shot past Wes Foderingham.

Smith converted Massimo Luongo's cross to put Swindon 2-1 up but the U's equalised when Massey turned the ball home after Swindon should have cleared.

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:

Cooper on Swindon v Colchester

"I think if you look at the chances we've missed again we should win.

"We've given away two goals again at home, we've got three 19-year-old boys playing centre-back and they're going to make mistakes.

"We're 1-0 up at half-time and within a minute of the re-start it's 1-1. That shouldn't happen.

"We've got some work to do with the young boys."
