BLUES boss Gary Waddock was left encouraged after their goalless draw with Colchester

Wycombe probably shaded a tight derby game at Adams Park and looked like the side more likely to win the game in the latter stages.

A first draw since October – and first goalless draw since last April – sees them move four points adrift of League One safety.

But Waddock said it was a 'valuable' point for his side ahead of back-to-back away trips to relegation rivals Bury and Exeter.

“I thought we played very well today against a good side and we backed up Tuesday night (4-2 win over Orient) with a valuable point and a clean sheet,” he said.

“There weren't too many chances for either side but it is encouraging because we have been Jekyll and Hyde, as we discussed the other night, and we turned up again today and put in a performance.

“It is a very good point. I thought we took the game to them in the second-half and caused them one or two problems. They were well organised and it was difficult to break them down so it is a valuable point.

“If they continue to perform like that it gives us a chance.”
