Manager Nathan Jones was completely honest in his reflection post-match as he couldn’t quite believe the Hatters didn’t take a result home from Ewood Park.
Blackburn were 1-0 winners courtesy of Adam Armstrong’s late goal but it was a performance that merited more for Jones’ side, who praised his team whilst in disbelief.
“I feel physically sick, I could be sick. The gaffer admitted. “I thought we were excellent, I thought we were outstanding. They are a difficult side to play against, but they hardly had a chance, we limited them to stuff that no side does.
“We defended absolutely brilliantly against them and then we have switched off from a drop ball. I can’t believe what has happened, I really can’t because we deserve more.
“The performance levels, the work rate, the energy levels, everything they gave me was absolutely superb. Take ten seconds out of the game, and I’m giving you a different interview here now. I haven’t felt this sick since the Blackpool second leg at home, that is how bad I feel to be honest.”
