GARY Waddock was happy to leave Colchester with a point after admitting his side were well below-par.
The Blues boss was unhappy with the first-half at the Weston Homes Community Stadium that saw Wanderers penned into their own box and struggling to string two passes together.
They were lucky to only go in 1-0 down after Ashley Vincent's goal and had to ride their luck in the second-half before a Scott Rendell penalty salvaged a point from the jaws of defeat.
Waddock said: “In the first-half our performance wasn't good enough and it was only in the last half hour of the game that we got back into it.
“It could have been out of sight by that stage. The players responded and we got something out of a game that was looking very difficult for us.
“We couldn't pass the ball in the first-half. In the second-half we were able to give more support to the front players and used the ball better.
“We got a fantastic point and ground out a result and that is a very big positive for us. I have said all along that you can not underestimate a point away from home.
“The players had to dig deep and we ground out a result in the end.”
