NATHAN JONES ON THE DRAW AGAINST CARLISLE UNITED

10 December 2016

Jones felt his side should have beaten the Cumbrians

Town boss Nathan Jones thought his side deserved to win after drawing 1-1 against Carlisle United at Kenilworth Road.


The hosts fell behind early on after Jason Kennedy fired in from close range, before Danny Hylton levelled the game after ten minutes.


Michael Raynes was shown a straight red card for an elbow on Hylton with eight minutes of normal time before the final whistle, but the Hatters couldn’t break down their opposition and had to settle for a point.


Jones was pleased with his side’s performance, but overall was disappointed that they hadn’t taken three points from the match.


He said: “I thought it was a good game, I thought we reacted well to going a goal down very early to a threat we knew they would have, that’s the disappointing thing for me.


“I felt we had the better chances over the 90 minutes. Jack Marriott had a chance, Scott Cuthbert had a chance, Isaac Vassell had a chance, Danny Hylton had a chance right at the end of the first half. I felt we should have won the game.


“It was a good game, another good advert. Every time a top team has come here it has been a good advert, with Portsmouth and Doncaster and obviously Carlisle. They are good sides, it’s a decent point overall.”
