Hatters boss Graeme Jones lamented his side’s second half performance as they were defeated 3-0 at home by Hull City.


After going in 0-0 at the break having been the better side, the Hatters conceded midway through the second half, before letting two in late on.

Jones said: “I was pleased with the first half performance and I thought the goal was coming. I asked us to be consistent with our football performance as we had been in the first half, and we couldn’t sustain it. I think even then as I look at the first goal back, if James Collins flicks the ball on, we have got two players free in the box and that’s the margins in football, James doesn’t flick it on, they go down the pitch and we concede. That’s the fine margins you’re dealing with in the Championship.

“The second goal is a long ball, it’s individual errors. The third goal is comical. It’s a 1-0 game, we had a couple of chances, I thought we were building momentum for maybe five, ten minutes – Tunnicliffe had a shot, Bradley having a great header in the six-yard box, the ball on the rebound nearly being over the line. After that I feel like we were spent and that’s my disappointment today. That resistance and that fight, especially when that second goal went in. I can’t have that.”
