Huddersfield manager Lee Clark was frustrated by the goalless draw with Colchester but happy with his team's overall performance following a 4-0 mauling at Carlisle in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in midweek.
The Terriers missed the opportunity to move into the automatic promotion places despite dominating the match for long periods, but were indebted to the heroics of goalkeeper Ian Bennett who made two superb stops in injury time.
Clark said: "You always want to win your home games. But John's an experienced manager and he set his stall out really well.
"There were chances at both ends and when our keeper Ian Bennett had to make two great saves near the end I'd settle for a 0-0.
"It was important that we got back on track. The players showed great courage and determination. We also kept a clean sheet and are unbeaten in five games in the league now.
"We're third in the table and there's much to be positive about."
