Loftus Road has never been a happy hunting ground for the Hatters!
Luton have not beaten Queens Park Rangers, on their own patch, since 1984, a record that continued yesterday when the Hatters slipped to a disappointing 3-1 defeat.
The defeat, in the final game of our Championship season, ensured Luton finished 12th in the Championship table, a fine achievement considering our stature.
But those hopes of finishing in the top-10 could have been realised yesterday when, once again, an inconsistent performance cost us dearly.
If the Hatters had taken their chances in the first-half they would have had the game wrapped up but the second-half saw Luton unable to reproduce their play of the first forty-five minutes and the rest, as they say, is history.
Talking to the local media after the game, and as reported by The BBC
Nathan Jones bemoaned those very points remarking:
“I thought after the first half that we should have been out of sight.
“We had enough opportunities to kill the game. But in the second half we didn’t really get going.
“I’m proud of the performance but we didn’t show enough quality in moments and that’s the level – if you don’t take your chances and put teams to bed they will hurt you.”
Indeed, they will, and it is something that needs to be worked on during the summer, possibly with the acquisition of another new striker to partner Elijah Adebayo.
Which Area Of The Squad Needs Strengthening The Most?
