2017/18 English League Two, Regular Season

Honours even between Colchester and Swindon

Colchester and Swindon Town played out an uninspiring 0-0 draw at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
Both teams lacked a cutting edge in front of goal, with chances at a premium throughout.
Matty Taylor's deflected free-kick sailed straight into the arms of Colchester keeper Dillon Barnes early on and Scotty Twine ran towards goal but curled a shot well over the bar.
At the other end, Drey Wright's first time cross-come-shot flew wide of the far post midway through the first half and Mikael Mandron hooked a first-time shot off target, soon after.
Colchester finished the first half strongly, with Courtney Senior firing over from Sean Murray's lay-off and Swindon keeper Stuart Moore pushing away Wright's fine goalbound effort for a corner, just before the interval.
Wright drove a fierce cross-shot just wide for Colchester shortly before the hour mark and the hosts felt they should have had a penalty when substitute Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe went down under Ryan McGivern's challenge with 14 minutes remaining but the points were shared.
