Hooper: Shot wide late on

Colchester held promotion-chasing Scunthorpe to an entertaining 0-0 draw at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

The Us had the best opportunities in an even first half, with David Perkins and Kem Izzet both firing first-time efforts over the bar.

But it was Scunthorpe who arguably spurned the best chance to break the deadlock midway through the first half.

Ben May found himself bearing down on goal after Garry Thompson's headed flick-on, but the ball got caught under his feet and Colchester keeper Jimmy Walker collected.

Seconds later, Colchester striker Scott Vernon missed a similar gilt-edged chance with the goal at his mercy and Marcus Williams hacked Clive Platt's effort away from danger early in the second half as the home side pressed.

Both teams almost snatched victory in the closing stages, with Colchester substitute Steven Gillespie and Gary Hooper for Scunthorpe both dragging shots wastefully wide.
