Danny Cowley was “bitterly disappointed” as his Huddersfield Town side were beaten 2-0 by Luton Town at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Two second half goals condemned the Terriers to defeat against a side that’s also fighting for Sky Bet Championship safety.

When speaking after the defeat, Town’s Manager explained how frustrated he was with the performance.

“It’s a bitterly disappointing evening; it was a really big game. We did well in the last three games to put ourselves in a good position and we were hoping to find our best levels in an important game, and we didn’t do that.

“We conceded an awful goal from a set piece. It was a ball that was tossed into our box and their centre-half had a free header from about four yards out, which is unacceptable; it’s been our Achilles heel. We’ve conceded too many goals. In these games the first goal is so important.

“Offensively we didn’t create anywhere near what we’d like, there were too many players coming to the ball. There wasn’t a sharpness in our play, we didn’t move the ball quick enough, we didn’t make enough hard runs beyond the defence and consequently didn’t carry the threat we’d have liked.

“Karlan’s scored a lot of goals for us, but we can’t always rely on him. We need other people to stand up and take responsibly and we weren’t able to do that this evening.

“It was a disappointing performance and we all have to take responsibility for that.”
