Brighton & Hove Albion 0 Colchester United 0
The Seagulls are goalless with Colchester at the break in front of a record low crowd for an Amex first team fixture of just 6,895.
Nikki Maenpaa and Elvis Manu, both making their full Amex debuts despite being with the club for nearly a year, have been involved in the action.
Kazenga LuaLua had a good chance but fired into the side netting.
Manu set up Jamie Murphy with a couple of good chances, one of which was cleared off the goal-line.
Sammie Szmodics and Denny Johnson have both forced Maenpaa into smart saves.
New Albion signing Ollie Norwood, also making his Amex and Albion debut, had a clear chance but shot wide.
