Shrimps’ skipper Alex Kenyon said his side fully deserved their point at Colchester.

Kenyon, who had an excellent game sitting in front of the back four, said: "It was a very good point.

"At the start of play they were third in the league and doing well up to Boxing Day where they had a surprise home defeat which meant we knew they would be eager to get back on track.

“We knew their manager would be looking for a reaction and they would raise their game so we had to be on our toes.

“We looked tight in defence and all the back four played really well and I just sat in front of them and looked to protect them and it was a system that worked really well for us.

“At the other end we had a few chances ourselves and Rhys Oates went close on a couple of occasions before we had a great chance right at the death when I was certain that Garry Thompson was going to put away Kev Ellison’s cross but the ball went just behind him.

“It was important to get a result after the Tranmere defeat and I think fully deserved it.''
