NATHAN JONES ON THE 2-0 HOME DEFEAT TO STEVENAGE

11 March 2017

The result saw the Hatters slip to sixth

Town boss Nathan Jones was left disappointed as his side fell to a 2-0 home defeat to Stevenage.

Former Hatter Luke Wilkinson headed in after two minutes to give the visitors the lead, before Ben Kennedy struck late on to double their advantage and secure the three points for Darren Sarll’s side.

Jones’ team slipped down to sixth in Sky Bet League Two, with the gaffer left unhappy with his side’s performance.

He said: “I am just disappointed. Look, fair play to them. They came with a game plan and scored early, so we gave ourselves an uphill battle – stuff we have shown them a million times.

“Wilkinson is a threat, he would have extra motivation here. So we have got our best, most aggressive header on it and he lost it in the first minute.

“So you have got a mountain to climb. An absolute mountain to climb.

“We were nowhere near our best throughout the game and yet we have had two or three cleared off the line, we have missed chances, there keeper has saved four. We have hit the post.

“So we still probably could have got something out of the game. But look, we didn’t. Then we allowed them to dictate the game second half and slow the game down.

“Fair play to them, they came with a game plan and got it spot on.”
