90 minutes for midfielder in Papa John's Trophy tie
Armando Dobra made his first appearance for Colchester last night after joining them on a season-long loan last week.
The midfielder played the full 90 minutes as the U's fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to Gillingham in the Papa John's Trophy.
Armando saw an effort saved and created a couple of other openings for the hosts but Gillingham's Robbie McKenzie netted late on to decide the tie.
Town begin their Papa John's Trophy campaign, which sees them joined in the group stages by the aforementioned two teams, against West Ham U21 on Tuesday night at Portman Road.
Tickets for that tie remain on sale here.
