Luton Town manager John Still had no complaints as his side bowed out of the FA Cup 2-0 at his old club Peterborough United today (December 6).

Still was impressed with the Posh performance, but felt his side didn’t make the most of their own opportunities.

“I can’t complain about the result,” Still said. “We were playing against a very good team who are in a rich vein of form.

“Peterborough have some excellent players who we knew all about, like Erhun Oztumer who I was very close to signing, and they are all playing very well so it was always going to be hard for us.

“We’ve not been in great form so we defended deeper than we normally do to try and restrict their space. We did okay in the first-half and even missed a couple of chances, but we were hanging in on the second-half I’m honest.

“I did sens that Peterborough were getting a bit edgy as they were taking a lot of touches at the back, but we only had one chance in the second-half and we didn’t even get a shot away.

“We had a couple of good opportunties in the first-half and we hit the post. If we had scored then who knows what might have happened, but Peterborough deserved their win. The second goal killed the game off.

“Mark Tyler was magnificent for us, but we had defensive issues before the game that affected us.

“Good luck to Peterborough in the next round.”

Tyler, Craig Mackail-Smith, who hit the post, and Josh McQuoid were the former Posh players to start the match for Luton. Scott Griffiths came on as a second-half substitute.
