Ten-man U's battle to hard-fought point at Hartlepool
Colchester United produced a superb defensive display to secure a battling 0-0 draw at Hartlepool United tonight.
The U's had to play with ten men for more than half of the game after striker Jabo Ibehre was sent off for a challenge on Pools defender Neil Austin, at Victoria Park.
It left Colchester up against it in the second half but they defended strongly as a team throughout the second period to secure what could turn out to be a crucial point, in their ongoing battle to beat the drop.
