Southampton   0 - 0   Colchester

Southampton 0-0 Colchester

Southampton 0-0 Colchester

Southampton extended their goal drought to five games as they could not break down a solid Colchester United side.

U's goalkeeper Mark Cousins produced a fine performance, and he reacted well to push away Rickie Lambert's volley.

Cousins later denied the same player with two free-kicks late on, diving full-length twice to keep it level.

Colchester, now undefeated in seven league matches, nearly stole the points but Saints' Kelvin Davis smothered Ashley Vincent's injury-time effort.


Southampton manager Nigel Adkins tells BBC Radio Solent:
"The supporters were great, they stayed behind the players.

"I want to get the right people in the right areas, but there is also the objective for the players to have freedom with the ball.

"It's been a whirlwind week, great credit to the players. The body language is good and they are having a go for each other which is important."

Colchester United manager John Ward told BBC Essex:
"It is a terrific point. It is a big club and a really good team with a strong management group.

"For us to come here and stand our ground, stand our corner in the way that we have done. I'm absolutely delighted with what we have done.

"I just think we could have used the ball a bit better than we did."
