Defender on draw against U's

Reds defender Mark Connolly insists that to be disappointed not to hold on for the win against Colchester United on Tuesday evening shows how far the club has come in recent times.

A late Chris Porter equaliser cancelled out Adi Yusuf's first half goal - the game finished 1-1 and it meant Dermot Drummy's men have picked up seven points out of a possible nine in their last three matches.

"I think we’re all disappointed we couldn’t hold on for the win – but who knows how important that point might be at the end of the season.


Reds Player HD."Luton are going to be up there at the end of the season, Morecambe was a great result too, and the draw tonight is another good performance. They’ve just been relegated and so I think it shows how the far the club has come to be disappointed we didn’t get all three points this evening," he told

minute was tough after we’d worked so hard to hold onto the lead."th"We were under a lot of pressure in the second half – Glenn (Morris) pulled off a superb save in the second period and I threw myself in the way of a shot too, that’s my job to stop goals – to concede in the 88

The game saw Connolly and Joe McNerney named together in the centre of defence for the fourth league game in succession - and the Irish defender believes a partnership is beginning to form between the two.

"Joe’s a really good guy and a great defender – there’s a good bond between us now since we’ve been playing together. We understand one another’s positioning and we’re both comfortable playing out from the back.


"The two goals at the weekend and tonight are disappointing for us as we didn’t get the clean sheets, that’s just how we are.


"I’m enjoying the run of games, my aim is to be in the team on a consistent basis and play as many matches as possible to help the club push forward."
