Boss on 2-2 draw

Despite twice battling from a goal down to earn a point at Cambridge, Hatters boss John Still admitted his side lacked creativity in the 2-2 draw at the Abbey Stadium.

A Jon Shaw header and a Solomon Taiwo penalty cancelled out goals from Tom Shaw and Nathan Blissett for the hosts.

And while the manager was disappointed with his team's performance he did praise the Town's resolve.

“I don't think we played very well but we battled really, really hard,” Still said afterwards. “I thought the back four kept us in the game.

“I don't think we were under enormous pressure and I thought the defence was the only area of the pitch that did their job.

“The passing in midfield was poor and the front two were devoid of service. The reason we got a  result was because we worked our socks off. Did we play well? No, I don't think so.

“In the first half we had two good efforts but other than it was devoid of incident. The second half was better but we lacked creativity and that's very disappointing for me.

“I've got no complaints about how hard we worked but my main complaint is the lack of creativity, I thought we were short of it today.

“The work-rate's okay but we've got to supply our attackers to score goals and I don't think we did that enough.”
