Colchester United manager Geraint Williams thought that his side deserved a draw against Wolves on Saturday.
The U's lost 1-0 at Molineux as their recent six-game unbeaten run finally came to an end, but Williams was pleased with his side's overall display.
He said: "We were caught out by one set-piece and I felt that a draw would have been a fair result.
"We've only lost by the odd goal this season but this game sums up how tight this league is. We won away at Barnsley this season and we had fewer chances there than we did in this game.
"Ironically, our best spell in the game came after we fell behind and, with the number of chances in the game, it could have easily been a high-scoring draw.
"The lads are disappointed. We knew the effort would be there and it was, but the quality in the final third was not there and we're finding out that's the difference in this division.
"But we weren't crowing after going on a good run and we won't be crying after losing."
