U's thwarted by late goal
11:34am Saturday 4th August 2012 in Sport
COLCHESTER United were held to a 2-2 draw on Friday night at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
A late goal denied John Ward's team a win in their latest pre-season friendly against Derby County.
A Magnus Okuonghae own goal put the U's behind on nine minutes.
But Freddie Sears fired the sides level two minutes before half-time.
And it was Sears who put the U's in front ten minutes after the break with a good finish.
However, Derby came back and equalised through Theo Robinson with almost the last kick of the game.
