Luton Town boss John Still bemoans defending following loss to Wycombe Wanderers

25 March 2015

Luton Town boss John Still was left to rue individual mistakes after his side fell to a fifth successive defeat by losing 3-2 to Wycombe Wanderers.

Wycombe went ahead after three minutes when a corner was half-cleared and Sam Saunders deflected the follow-up into the net.

The hosts were level after seven minutes, though, as Luke Guttridge's shot was parried by Matt Ingram and Elliot Lee tapped the rebound home.

Elliot Justham had to save from Joe Jacobson's ambitious free-kick but the visitors retook the lead after 21 minutes when Luke Wilkinson tripped Matthew Bloomfield in the area for a penalty, which Paul Hayes converted.

Alfie Mawson made it 3-1 in the 31st minute with a superb solo goal, before Lee notched his second to make it 3-2, and that's how it stayed despite a number of chances for either side in the second half.

Still said: "It's not about how we play, we've put in some good performances, it's about mistakes we make.

"The penalty was a ridiculous challenge and one of the goals too. From defending great for two seasons, that's where we're falling down at the moment.

"The last few games we've played well enough to get something but if you make mistakes it doesn't matter.

"It's like the boxer who goes 12 rounds, wins every round, then in the last seconds leaves himself exposed and gets knocked out.

"It's not good enough, and that's not good enough from us, but individuals have to do better."
