Watch | Nathan Jones reacts to QPR defeat

Manager Nathan Jones was disappointed his side couldn’t convert their chances after suffering defeat at the hands of Queens Park Rangers this evening.


A goal in each half condemned the Hatters to a second defeat in succession but it wasn’t for a lack of effort, with Town having a number of openings throughout the 90 minutes.

“We have to show more quality,” Jones admitted. “Same as the Stoke game, we had more situations and they had one opportunity and won the game. Today they had two and won the game and that’s the way it is.

"We can do better with the first goal, there are a few errors leading to that and we have to defend that better.

“We have to defend the second better as well but the goal should never have been because it is a foul the other way (on Sonny Bradley). We have to show more quality and more composure because we’ve had so many chances tonight, 16 shots and they’ve had two on target and scored them both.

Despite failing to find the back of the net, the manager said: “I thought we were excellent at times. First half I thought we were brilliant but it is the same as last year. They had one opportunity first half and scored but we didn’t show quality and didn’t punish them. They got away with it and they got away with it again today so fair play to them because they showed more quality than us.”
