GRAEME JONES ON THE DEFEAT TO SWANSEA CITY

21 December 2019

Hatters boss Graeme Jones felt his side did very little wrong in their 1-0 defeat to Swansea City at Kenilworth Road this afternoon.

Having gone close to opening the scoring through George Moncur, the Town were punished late on as Andre Ayew was able to convert from close range.

The result leaves the Town in 21st place, two points above the relegation zone.

Jones said: "The big moment again is Harry going around the keeper, ball comes back to George and the keeper is out of his goal. That was the moment we could have won the game.

"The goal comes, Ryan Tunnicliffe doesn’t stop the cross. It spoons in the air, James Bree gets tripped I think, accidentally, but Ayew runs across him and he’s on the floor, he should be marking him, obviously it’s not James’ fault, but he was there to head the ball in the back of the net and we're just getting hurt. 

"We’ve done very little wrong today and the boys have given absolutely everything and we got beat one-nil, I feel sorry for the lads today because they can’t give anymore.

"They’ve given everything they have got, we are just a little bit short at the minute and again I’m going to have to mention, I think we need to understand that Swansea’s front three was £40 million so this is what we are up against.

"We got beat by one goal, a fortunate trip and I’ve told the boys that nobody is going to help us, nobody is going to feel sorry for us. We need to dust ourselves down and the only measurement is giving everything we have got.

"We are trying to get a tactical advantage against Fulham which won’t be easy because we know the calibre of player that is coming here and see if that is enough to get some points."
