Midfielder Jordan Clark apologised to the Luton Town supporters following the 5-1 home reversal against Brentford, but insisted that the club’s mentality to prove the doubters wrong will come to the fore once again in the coming days.

The Hatters suffered their heaviest league defeat at Kenilworth Road this season, as the Bees added three second-half goals to their 2-0 half-time lead before Luke Berry grabbed a consolation in added time.

An honest Clark said: “It was a tough loss to take. We built the game up all week but were second best all over the pitch and full credit to Brentford. They are a well-oiled machine, do the basics really well and have some quality players.

“We weren’t good enough today as a team, and we are sorry to the fans who were amazing as always.”

Discussions among the squad had already taken place in the immediate aftermath of the final whistle as they look to put things right for next Saturday’s trip to Wolves.

“A few lads have spoken and got stuff off their chests,” said the 29-year-old. “What is said in the changing room stays in the changing room, but you’ve got to look at yourself first and foremost. We’ve got to be men and we’ve got to bounce back now next week.

“We knew how big this game was, to get the three points to get us out of the relegation zone. It wasn’t meant to be, but we’ve got four massive games now – even bigger games – so we look forward to Wolves and we need a performance and a result.”

With 12 points to play for and the Town being just one adrift of 17th-place Nottingham Forest before their game at Everton, Clark warned against writing the Hatters off.

“We were written off at the start of the season and we’ve had that tag all year,” he said. “They’ll probably write us off even more so after this, and obviously the Man City game last week. Conceding a lot of goals over two games is not good.

“But that’s what we do at Luton Town, we prove a lot of people wrong and we’ve still got the full belief in there, in each other and as a squad.”
