Colchester United boss Joe Dunne admitted he had no complaints about the scoreline after his injury-hit side lost 2-0 against Coventry City at Sixfields this afternoon.

A brace from Callum Wilson secured victory for the Sky Blues against a U's side missing the likes of Sanchez Watt, Gavin Massey, Freddie Sears and Magnus Okuonghae.

Dunne said: “Coventry were better than us in terms of passing and moving the ball.

“They dominated the first half and we had a makeshift back four.

“We stuck at it though and to our credit, it was still only 1-0 at half-time.

“I thought we started the second half quite well but overall, I have no complaints about the result.

“We went direct with 4-4-2 in the second half and tried to get higher up the pitch.

“There was plenty of energy though and it was a great experience for the likes of Mason Spence, Tosin Olufemi and Alex Gilbey.

“Alex had a good chance before half-time and if he had kept it a bit lower, it might have been different because they went up the other end and scored."
