Hatters boss Graeme Jones apologised to the Town supporters after the defeat at Griffin Park this afternoon.

The hosts put seven past the Town without reply, with the manager embarrassed by the performance.

He said: “The only people that I feel sorry for is our supporters. Again, they travelled in their numbers and I need to apologise to them for that performance. I don’t want to be manager of Luton Town and have to represent that, I’ve got too much pride in myself. The boys have told me that they will take responsibility for the performance today, which I thought was big of them.

“I didn’t clap them (the fans) at the end because I felt so embarrassed with the performance. It doesn’t help that you lose Izzy, now with a hamstring it compounds things. Brendan Galloway’s snapped his patella tendon so to say it’s been a bad day at the office is an understatement.

“I think that everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong, including the start, giving them an opening goal and then I felt that defensively we were so fragile after that point.

“We didn’t get close to people, didn’t defend with any kind of intensity, any meaning. Don’t forget, this is the same team and the same set of tactics that went narrowly against Leeds and beat Charlton midweek so to say I’m disappointed would be an understatement.”

Asked about the supporters’ response to the loss, Jones explained he was as disappointed as they were.

“I’m as disgusted with the performance as they are, I’ve let the players know that and we have to do something about it.”
