Parkinson feared Yeates had broken his leg
City will check on Mark Yeates tomorrow morning after the stoppage-time incident that saw Colchester sub Daniel Pappoe red-carded.
Pappoe, who had been on for less than five minutes, was sent off for a late tackle on the Irishman at the end of today’s 2-2 draw.
City boss Phil Parkinson admitted: “I thought Yeatesy had broken his leg. The sheer ferocity of the challenge shook Mark up.
“I thought the whistle had gone and the game had stopped before the lad launched himself in. That’s what annoyed me.
“It was needless because it was a great game. I don’t know what the lad was thinking.”
“If we’d have lost a key player like Mark Yeates we’d have been livid. “ Nahki Wells scored both City goals to take his tally to nine for the season.
