Luton Town put on a superb away performance in one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. It was a game of few chances with Tom Holmes putting the ball into his own net after 33 minutes. The hosts put up little resistance with Allan Campbell scoring for a second consecutive game to double their advantage in the 58th minute.
Reading Veljko Paunovic: “We have to look for an immediate reaction to this. We have to play our games with more urgency, more anger and more courage. In the past, we have often done this. I was very disappointed with the mentality and character that we showed. We have lost games in the past but we have never been so flat. It’s always a time for self-criticism and I put myself first. We have to improve and I also have to find ways that I can improve. There weren’t many exceptions tonight but I would like to highlight [central defender and captain] Michael Morrison.”
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “I thought that we were excellent in possession and out of possession. Structurally, we were really good, too. We worked incredibly hard and also defended our box when we needed to. We also had a threat going forward. We didn’t really play with the same quality that we normally do in the first half. But I thought that we were better in the second half. It was a tricky little game, we knew it was going to be like that with the predicament that Reading is in.”
