That Final-Third Syndrome!

That Final-Third Syndrome!

Yesterday, against AFC Wimbledon, Luton Town slipped to their second consecutive home defeat.

Having lost to Swindon, in the Capital One Cup in midweek, John Still would have been hoping that Luton would get back to winning ways, but it wasn`t to be.

Luton failed to seriously test the AFC Wimbledon keeper and after scoring almost at will last season, are troubling to bag goals so far this season.

Reflecting on this apparent problem, John Still has labelled it the final piece of the jigsaw and speaking to the local media after yesterday`s defeat, has remarked,

"I look at it two ways, I was really happy with how we played and if I`m disappointed, it was our final third play, final pass, final cross, final finish."

"It wasn`t quite on it, but in general, I was quite happy with how we played."

"People asked me that last year, but it`s the last bit of the jigsaw normally, that side of your game."

"We`ve worked really hard pre-season, looked sharp and scored goals pre-season, we did that the year before."

"We carved out probably eight, nine, 10 good opportunities to deliver the ball in and it wasn`t quite right, but we`ll carry on working how we`ve always done."

"We found a way last year and we`ll find a way this year. It`s really, really important we don`t over focus on what was not quite right, but we focus on all the good things we`ve been doing and fine tune it a little bit."


Are we missing the silky finishing of Andre Gray or is it just one of those things that will come naturally in the weeks ahead?
