Mikael Mandron netted his first Colchester goal to rescue a point in their League Two draw with Stevenage.Colchester wasted a good fourth-minute opportunity when Mandron fired over from inside the area, after exchanging passes with Drey Wright.Stevenage’s Danny Newton was denied by U’s goalkeeper Sam Walker after 30 minutes while at the other end, Ryan Jackson’s effort was saved by goalkeeper Joe Fryer.

Stevenage started the second half strongly and came close to scoring when Matt Godden’s strike flashed inches wide of the post, after Dale Gorman had done well to set him up.And the visitors took a 51st-minute lead when Newton hooked in from close range, after Ronnie Henry had done well in the area to pick him out.But Colchester were level 15 minutes later through Mandron, who finished emphatically after Fryer had raced out of his goal and Wright had crossed.Stevenage’s Fraser Franks twice went close and Walker denied Ben Kennedy late on, as the spoils were shared.Report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsColchester1Walker18Eastman6Kent12KpekawaSubstituted forKinsellaat 48’minutes2Jackson4Lapslie16MurraySubstituted forSlaterat 76’minutes17ReidSubstituted forLoftat 78’minutes10Szmodics7Wright19MandronSubstitutes3Kinsella8Loft9Johnstone22Vincent-Young24Slater29Gilmartin35JamesStevenage1Fryer25Henry5Franks6Wilkinson3J Martin7WhelpdaleSubstituted forSamuelat 46’minutes17Gorman2Smith8BeautymanSubstituted forPettat 86’minutes24GoddenSubstituted forKennedyat 60’minutes19NewtonSubstitutes10Kennedy11Pett15Samuel16Day18Conlon20Vancooten30McKeeReferee:Antony CogginsAttendance:3,330Match StatsHome TeamColchesterAway TeamStevenagePossessionHome53%Away47%ShotsHome10Away17Shots on TargetHome2Away5CornersHome6Away9FoulsHome12Away16Live TextPosted at Match ends, Colchester United 1, Stevenage 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+4′ Second Half ends, Colchester United 1, Stevenage 1.Posted at 90’+3′ Drey Wright (Colchester United) wins a free kick on the right wing.Posted at 90’+3′ Foul by Joe Martin (Stevenage).Posted at 90′ Attempt missed.
