NATHAN JONES POST CHELTENHAM HOME DEFEAT

31 January 2017

The result leaves the Hatters in fifth in League Two

Hatters boss Nathan Jones was disappointed with his side’s performance as they lost 3-2 at home to Cheltenham Town.

The Robins took a two-goal lead at Kenilworth Road, before Isaac Vassell pulled a goal back in the first half. Billy Waters added a third to Cheltenham’s tally, which was narrowed when Liam Davis deflected Olly Lee’s drilled free-kick into his own net, but the visitors held on to take all three points from the fixture.

Jones was left frustrated with the outcome of the game and felt it was one of his most difficult nights as manager of the Hatters.

He said: “Very much so [it was one of the worst nights]. It just seems to be this game. I said to them, this game, when we really get to turn the screw and to get right there, we don’t take it.

“We never take it. Since I have been here we never take it. Maybe that’s something I have to look at, something we have to do.

“Because it was a great opportunity tonight to go within a point of third and we didn’t take it. It’s so, so disappointing.

“Cambridge came here to win the game, Cheltenham came here not to lose, so there is a different set up. Fair play to them, they set up, defended, put nine behind the ball and it was difficult for us.”
