Colchester   1 - 1   Tranmere

Colchester V Tranmere

Colchester 1-1 Tranmere

Colchester's faint hopes of reaching the play-offs ended after a spirited display by Tranmere, who remain perched in League One's relegation zone.

The hosts took the lead in the fourth minute through Anthony Wordsworth's right-foot shot from 18 yards.

But Rovers responded two minutes later when keeper Ben Williams palmed Joss Labadie's long-range effort into Ian Thomas-Moore's path to score.

Colchester's David Prutton was sent off late on for a second yellow card.


Colchester United manager, Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Essex:

"We got what we deserved, we did not get enough numbers in the box and we went ahead and conceded almost straight away.

"We went out to win the game but we just couldn't do it in the end.

"That's it, we build for next year now."

Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"We've got to be happy with a draw and we've got to be happy with our performance as well.

"The lads in the dressing room are disappointed that we didn't win the game.

"When you come to Colchester and you're disappoint you didn't win the game, I think that is a great sign."
