Manager Nathan Jones was disappointed his side couldn’t build on their first-half dominance against Huddersfield Town this afternoon.

Back at Kenilworth Road for only the second time this calendar year, James Collins had given the Hatters a fantastic start early on but Naby Sarr equalised for the Terriers in the second half, condemning the Hatters to a frustrating draw.

The level of performance I was pretty satisfied with,” the gaffer insisted. “We just needed that second goal. First half I thought we were excellent, we had a number of opportunities, Potts’ chance I think is point-blank, got to score.

“He’s got up brilliantly, won the header and you think it’s in, everyone on our bench did. I think that would have been the cushion that we needed because I thought we were in real control.

“Second half they came out and they wanted to have a right go and they did. They didn’t have anything clear-cut apart from the counter attack late on and I still felt we were a threat as well.

“Overall, we have had enough chances and enough opportunities to have taken three points and I’m a little bit disappointed that we didn’t.

A pleasing aspect however was the way in which the goal was scored, as Jones admitted: “We made a big thing of it this week because we put so many balls into the box without actually converting.

“We worked on the type of cross, the run, numbers in the box, those are the things we have worked on and we had a big de-brief on it from the last six games because Brentford away, Blackburn away and QPR here, we have had a lot of opportunities in and around the box but haven’t quite finished the action.

“Today we wanted to do that and I thought we were a threat especially from crosses, just disappointed we didn’t get the second goal.”
