Colchester 2-2 Barnsley
Veteran striker Teddy Sheringham scored his first goal for Colchester as the U's earned a point in an ill-tempered clash with Barnsley at Layer Road.

Brian Howard's penalty put Barnsley ahead after keeper Dean Gerken sent off for bringing down Kayode Odejayi.

Sheringham scored from close range to equalise on 45 minutes before Matthew Connolly headed the U's ahead.

Paul Reid was sent off for a foul on Sheringham but a handball by Johnnie Jackson let Howard level from the spot.

  • Colchester manager Geraint Williams on the second penalty:
    "I think it hit Johnnie on the shoulder but we will have to have another look at it.

    "We can't change the result but I felt that the players who stayed on the pitch for us were magnificent.

    "It was a very eventful game and some of the decisions were a bit dubious but that's football."

  • Barnsley boss Simon Davey:
    "Layer Road is a tough place to come to. It's always tough playing against 10 men but when it went to 10 versus 10 we felt we had the chance to win it.

    "We got back into the game after going 2-1 down and showed good character but we're disappointed with Paul's red card.

    "He led with his arm and he caught him but it wasn't intentional.

    "We are now undefeated in two games and it's important that we keep that going."
