Boss Rob Edwards said he was gutted after the Town fell to a defeat at home to Burnley at Kenilworth Road.

The Hatters looked set to take at least a point when Elijah Adebayo found canceled out Lyle Foster’s first-half goal. 

However, the Clarets won it 65 seconds after the striker’s equaliser to take all three points back to Turf Moor. 

“I’m disappointed with the result, we all down in there. We flat, I'm hurting with the manner and the timing of it. 

“They shaded the first half but we adjusted in the second half and then dominated – we had 15 shots inside their box and scored once – that is proving the most difficult at the minute. It is the hardest thing in football. 

“We were brave, aggressive, we didn’t allow them the control, which is what they want. But ultimately we’ve come away with nothing and that hurts. 

“We did have big chances, some great opportunities – if we weren’t doing that then I would be more worried. There’s lots to be positive about but we’re going in the right direction.” 

On Burnley’s winner that came immediately after the restart, Edwards added: “We haven’t touched the ball after the goal. 

“I was swept away with emotion as I felt we could win the game. 

“There’s a few things we could have done better and it’s something we can learn from but it’s gutting at that moment.”
