Gary Ablett was once again left bemoaning his side’s ‘naivety’ as we crashed to our highest defeat of the season at Millwall yesterday.

We now lie fifteen points from safety leaving us almost certainly relegated (no matter how many times Ablett says we’re going to win all our remaining games!)

And the way The Hatters shot themselves in the foot at the New Den, with two own goals contributing to the 5-0 loss, has the ex-Liverpool defender worried.

‘But after the own goal, you can’t account for things like that and the manner in which we conceded the other goals was very disappointing.’

‘You can’t come to a place like Millwall and defend like we did and still expect to come away with something.’

Ablett admitted he was ‘disappointed’ in his team after failing to hold out past the half-hour mark when Danny Swailes put through his own net past fon Williams.

‘It’s disappointing because really, the scoreline flatters them – they didn’t have to work for their goals and we should have made it harder. We set up with a game plan, and we were looking fairly solid at first, but you can’t account for errors like the ones we made.’
