Graeme Jones said he was disappointed with his sides’ second half performance against Hull City yesterday.

The Hatters lost 3-0 to the Tigers at Kenilworth Road after two goals from Kevin Stewart and a third in as many games for Kamil Grosicki.

There was nothing to split the two sides at half time but the visitors came out strong in the second half and cruised past the hosts in the end.

Jones spoke to Luton’s official club website after the game: “I was pleased with the first half performance and I thought the goal was coming. I asked us to be consistent with our football performance as we had been in the first half, and we couldn’t sustain it.”

“I think even then as I look at the first goal back, if James Collins flicks the ball on, we have got two players free in the box and that’s the margins in football, James doesn’t flick it on, they go down the pitch and we concede. That’s the fine margins you’re dealing with in the Championship.”

He continued: “The second goal is a long ball, it’s individual errors. The third goal is comical. It’s a 1-0 game, we had a couple of chances, I thought we were building momentum for maybe five, ten minutes – (Ryan) Tunnicliffe had a shot, (Sonny) Bradley having a great header in the six-yard box, the ball on the rebound nearly being over the line. After that I feel like we were spent and that’s my disappointment today. That resistance and that fight, especially when that second goal went in. I can’t have that.”
