Boss disappointed with home defeat
Town boss John Still admitted his side were way below their best as they slumped to a disappointing home defeat to Hyde.
The visitors had lost six straight matches coming into the game but goals from Louis Almond and Jamie Milligan were enough for the Tigers to take three points home – despite Jake Howells’ equaliser in between for the Hatters.
“I thought we were poor – we’ve not played well today,” said Still afterwards. “Where there any positives? No. Poor defending led to both goals.
“We’ve responded well to the first goal and gone in at half-time 1-1. I thought we’d done okay in the first half and at half-time I thought we’d push on like we did in the second half against Hereford on Saturday but we didn’t.
“In the second half we lacked spark of any creativity, our game became long and we lacked that movement we showed against Hereford.
“Up until today we’d had three games and been ok – only ok – but today we were poor. I never felt as though we could get back in it, but that’s part and parcel of where we are the minute.
“As a manager you look for two things: a good performance; and those players who can’t do the job - in defeat you learn – I’m learning every day.
“Luton have been out of the Football League for four years and nobody’s found the winning formula yet. I’ve been here two weeks and I’m going to try and find that formula.”
