BUCKLE ON DORCHESTER DRAW

27 November 2012

Boss disappointed to concede late leveller

Town boss Paul Buckle was frustrated his side couldn't turn their chances and dominance into a victory as they were held to a 2-2 draw at Dorchester.

After an own goal had the Hatters in front after 50 seconds before the hosts equalised shortly before the hour.

But, after Stuart Fleetwood's goal 12 minutes from time put the Town back in front, Buckle's side had to settle for a replay when Craig Clough headed a 92nd-minute leveller.

"We've done enough tonight to win the game," Buckle said afterwards. "Over the whole game we deserved to win. We came here and were thoroughly professional, but we've got to be more disciplined and see the game out.

"We got back in front and should have marched on. Instead we had the opportunity to keep the ball in the corner in injury time and in the end we haven't defended a corner - Simon Ainge's is disappointed he's let his man go - and we draw the game.

"The lads have held their hands up because we know we should have won. We had an unbelievable amount of chances.

"It should have been a Luton win tonight but we can't be too disappointed. We've been excellent away from home and again we did a lot of things right.

"On reflection I'm very pleased with the performance but at the same time I'm disappointed that we didn't see it over the line."
