Wednesday boss Brian Laws was full of praise for Colchester as they picked up a shock win against his off-form Wednesday charges on Saturday.
The Owls were hot favourites going in to the clash on a six-game unbeaten run, while Colchester were struggling at the wrong end of the Championship table.
But Teddy Sheringham's first minute strike set Wednesday on to a 2-1 defeat on home soil, and the Owls manager was quick to praise the U's, and insist his charges just weren't at the races.
'You can't concede after a minute and think everything is hunky dory,' Laws told the official SWFC website.
'It started from the first minute and it finished that way. Credit to Colchester, they have come here and they got the goal but the second one was a real killer for us. We had been defending corners exceptionally well but we let a second goal in from one.
'We got back in it, it was good time for us to score and get in at half time to regroup. We have huffed and puffed but we did not have the quality we were showing over the last six games. I have to be honest, the best team won on the day.'
'I still felt we could get back in it from 2-0 down and I am disappointed. It is the poorest performance we have had for a while. I can forgive players for having a poor performance but there were too many today. We need to regroup, get back on track and try to put another run together.'
Needless to say Colchester boss Geraint Williams was delighted that his men were able to put their poor form behind them to pick up an impressive win against the in-form Owls.
'People have said we are too good to go down, but nobody is too good. You have to keep proving it and we have to keep going,' said Williams.
'I told the players this is a big club and a wonderful set-up and I told the lads to go out and enjoy it and I think they did.
'This was a massive win because, when you don't get a result, sometimes belief can disappear. But we have kept going and we got the result we deserved.'
