Addicks Fight Back to Draw
15/09/07 - 15:00
The Addicks managed to once again fight back from a deficit to avoid defeat, as they came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Colchester at Layer Road.
The U's raced into a two goal lead with goals in quick succession from Mark Yeates, 32 minutes, after the old warrior Teddy Sheringham played him through, then former Addicks striker Kevin Lisbie, 38 minutes, came back to haunt his former side six minutes later, as we feared he would, as he headed home Johnnie Jackson's corner.
Svetoslav Todorov, 45 minutes, who was given the starting nod alongside Chris Iwelumo, was set-up by the latter, who flicked on for him to slot past the goalkeeper to reduce the deficit on half time.
The U's were reduced to ten men ten minutes into the second half when Matthew Connolly, 55 minutes, was sent off by the referee for pulling back Chris Iwelumo, on the advice of his assistant.
Zheng Zhi, 73 minutes, equalised for the Addicks after Luke Varney had headed down to ensure a share of the spoils.
