Colchester United wing-back Ryan Jackson has claimed that his side "outplayed" and "outbattled" Notts County on Saturday, despite leaving Meadow Lane with nothing to show for it. Shola Ameobi's penalty had given the Magpies the lead but substitute Sanmi Odelusi looked to have salvaged a point for the U's with his 89th-minute strike. However, there was time for more drama as Ryan Yates glanced home a header to claim all three points for Notts for a 2-1 win and keep them level on points with top-placed League Two side Luton Town. Jackson told the Daily Gazette: “We deserved a lot more from the game than we got. We worked very hard and played very good football. “But it was just one of those games where if chances had gone our way, we could have come out winning the game. But sometimes that’s just football and you don’t get what you deserve. “We outplayed them and we out-battled them and I think we had way too much for them but we didn’t turn those goals into a win. “We worked our socks off to try and get a goal and when we did, we felt like we were going to get at least a point from the match. “Credit to Sanmi – he’s worked very hard and that’s when you’ve got to see the game out but it just wasn’t meant to be. "It was one of those where there was a lapse in concentration. Someone has obviously left their runner and they’ve punished us. We’ve been defending so well and it was just one dip in concentration that led to the goal.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.
