The gaffer thought his side should have taken all three points

Town boss Nathan Jones said he felt like it was “two points dropped” as his side fought back to draw 1-1 with Exeter City at Kenilworth Road this afternoon.

The visitors took the lead through Jake Taylor when he curled home from Jack Stacey’s cross, before Danny Hylton headed home substitute Ollie Palmer’s cross to bring the game level.

Jones’ team pushed for a winner, but they were unable to break down the Grecians for a second time.

The gaffer said: “It’s definitely two points dropped. Exeter are a good side, but we have to win these games. For our ultimate goal, we have to win these games. It was a very good performance first half, I thought we controlled the game.

“We needed a bit more cutting edge, we needed a bit more about us, but we didn’t quite have that. We started slowly second half, which is something we don’t usually do. That let them into it and they had a couple of chances and then finally scored from a counter attack.

“Then we came into it. We made the changes and we got a goal back. We have missed a fair few chances in the second half to have won the game, so that’s the frustrating thing.

“It went a bit like a basketball game at the end. End-to-end. But it was two sides going at each other and we showed a lot of character to come back and to draw the game.

“Look, I am disappointed because I think it’s two points dropped.”
