Reaction | Rob Edwards on Preston draw

Manager Rob Edwards felt his side dropped two points as they were held to a 1-1 draw against Preston North End in the Sky Bet Championship this evening.


The Hatters had threatened on multiple occasions before taking the lead through Carlton Morris in the 73rd minute, a short time after the home side had been reduced to ten men. However, against the run of play, Preston found an equaliser from the penalty spot and got a share of the spoils.

"I was really pleased with big parts of the performance," the boss said to BBC Three Counties Radio. "We have to look at performances but ultimately we want results and points on the board. I do feel like it was two points dropped tonight.

"We got that goal, they had a man sent-off and we were looking completely dominant as I felt we were with 11 men. We have been punished now in the last two games away from home with penalties. I feel like we can get to the ball a bit quicker and close the spaces a little bit quicker like we said the other day and that is something we have to learn very quickly from.

"The goal came a bit out of the blew and gave them a fresh impetus and something to cling onto and they really stepped up their game. We had another couple of really good chances right at the death, we kept pushing, we kept trying but it was unlucky we weren’t able to find that second goal which I know I’ve said a couple of times lately.

"You can’t do much more than create the chances we created, and it’s down to the boys to either hit the target or be ruthless and that is something we’re going to keep focusing on."
