Reaction | Nathan Jones on Watford defeat

Manager Nathan Jones shared his disappointment with today’s defeat against Watford.


The home side scored two goals in each half to condemn Luton to a first defeat in eight matches and the boss gave his thoughts on the loss when speaking to BBC Three Counties after the game.

“They scored goals today but there was context to it. We have put in big, big shifts in the last four games, three of which have been away. West Brom, Norwich, Watford here and QPR at home.

“We are unbeaten in three with seven points which is a good haul and we can’t forget that. Today we got decimated by an illness bug. We lost Henri Lansbury, we lost Luke Berry and Dan Potts. They were on the bench and even though they were named they didn’t come out.

“We were decimated by it, Sonny Bradley had it as well so it was right through the squad and today we looked lacklustre.

“We gave away goals that we never give away. First two minutes we don’t mark in the box. We have given the ball away three times in the six years I have been here that have led directly to goals. Once at Derby away and twice today.

“I’m really disappointed and really gutted. I apologise to the fans for what they have had to go through today. It is the last place we wanted to come to (and lose).”
