Morecambe and Colchester shared the spoils after a goalless draw at the Globe Arena.
A game of low quality produced few chances and ended with both teams having to settle for a point.
Morecambe created the better openings of the first half with Alex Kenyon and Gregg Wylde firing shots wide of the target although their best effort came on the stroke of half-time.
Adam McGurk drilled in a sweetly struck low shot from 25 yards that Sam Walker could only parry but the keeper did well to react sharply and save the follow up from Garry Thompson with his legs.
Colchester started the game well with Brennan Dickensen drilling an early effort wide before they were denied by the crossbar when a cross was flicked on but hit the woodwork although Barry Roche looked to have the effort covered.
The visitors were sharper in the second half and went close to stealing the points in the 75th minute when Dickensen's inswinging free kick was superbly saved by Barry Roche.
Morecambe had a late chance to win the game but Thompson volleyed Vadaine Oliver's knock down over from close range before Mikael Mandron blazed wide in injury time from the angle when he should have done much better.
