Watch | Nathan Jones' reaction to draw against Millwall

Hatters boss Nathan Jones felt a draw was tough to take after the Hatters suffered late heartbreak against Millwall this evening.

On his first start for the club, Elijah Adebayo had given Town the lead but the three points were slashed to one in the dying embers, a result harsh on a much-improved Luton performance.

The gaffer was honest in his reaction post-match, starting: “I feel sick really, we didn’t deserve that. We made a lot of changes, we tried to be as positive as we could.

“We took a few gambles with a few personnel and look, it is a difficult game against Millwall. They are big and strong, we found that out in the away game.

“They sat off, tried to play on the counter attack and we did all the running, without having a real cutting edge in the final third, which a few of them haven’t played for a while. Then when you take the lead, we should have seen the game out.

“Where they got six (minutes added time) from I don’t know, it was just subs. Every time we are one-nil down there is four minutes, no matter what people do, and I just felt he buckled a little bit playing six and that is what cost us.

“At the end of the day you have to win headers in your box, when Matt Smith comes on you know what they are going to do, you know they are going to go direct.”
