Watch | Nathan Jones' reaction to Swansea draw

Manager Nathan Jones admitted his side ‘couldn’t maintain’ their first-half performance after suffering late heartbreak against Swansea City this afternoon.


After an electric start to the match thanks to goals from Luke Berry and Elijah Adebayo, the away side hit back in the second period with three goals of their own, condemning Jones’ side to a fourth draw in a row.

“That is the way the Championship is. We’re absolutely cruising at three-nil, Elijah should have made it four, Harry should have made it four and we didn’t. Couldn’t fathom the end of the game, they were gambling and pushing forward, and we couldn’t get a grip on the game.

"We changed and put some fresh legs on but then they scored three from outside the box and it is disappointing because at three-nil up, you should win the game.”

It was an extremely dominant first-half performance from the Hatters, who found themselves three-goals ahead by the half-hour mark, but weren’t able to sustain that same level of performance in following 45.

“We just couldn’t maintain it. Third game in a week, weren’t really able to freshen anything up, same players had to go through the same things all over again because we have so many injuries.

"Kal Naismith is playing with an injury, Gabe Osho played his first game ever at left-back, so they’re doing wonderful things but I can’t fathom what is going on at the moment in terms of our injuries because that has curtailed us today, we look dead on our feet.”
