16 October 2010 06:57
Goalkeeper Ben Williams produced a man of the match display to earn Colchester a point at Boundary Park.The U's could have taken the lead after Ashley Vincent forced Dean Brill into a save, and Anthony Wordsworth skipped past three players only to fire wide. [LNB]Oldham took control after the break and Dean Kelly looked to have scored, but his effort was ruled out for offside. [LNB]Williams then took centre stage as he twice saved superbly from Dale Stephens and beat out Oumare Tounkara's shot. [LNB][LNB]Oldham player-manager Paul Dickov told BBC Radio Manchester: "It was frustrating and in the first half I thought we were pretty poor, as poor as we've been this season.[LNB] [LNB][LNB] "There was no real tempo about us and that's what we're all about playing at a high tempo and showing lots of energy and possibly both teams cancelled each other out. [LNB]"I'm disappointed with a point as I thought in the second half we were by far the better team and should have won the game." [LNB]Colchester United manager John Ward told BBC Essex: "Particularly in the first half we looked a good side and really knocked the opportunities down for Oldham.[LNB] [LNB][LNB] "But in the second half they picked up, the game did get a wee bit stretched and we consigned them to a few long range strikes and when they did get them into Ben (Williams) he showed good handling form. [LNB]"So I've been pretty pleased with the afternoon, but particularly the response from the group (to last week's defeat)."
