Luton boss Edwards: Players must not dwell on Man City thrashing

Luton boss Rob Edwards has backed his players to get their heads right after losing to Manchester City.

The Premier League minnows saw their FA Cup dreams crushed at home, as City won 6-2 on Tuesday.

With Erling Haaland scoring five and Kevin De Bruyne assisting four, Edwards admitted they just had to move on quickly.

He stated: “I hope it doesn’t have a negative effect. I’m always going to come out and try and back the team and try and be bullish, say what I think are the right things, but then time will tell now how we react and knowing this group the way I do, I think they’ll react in the right way.

“We’ve got some really good leaders in there, lads who know how big the games are coming up and tonight, we’ve been hit by an amazing team, arguably the best team in the world, one of the best teams I’ve probably ever seen, and there’s no shame in that. There will be bits, and it’s on me, the areas that we can improve and work on, so we’ll work really hard to try and rectify that quickly, but I don’t see it knocking this group.

“We’ve got to make sure we use it to get better and not to allow it to feel sorry for ourselves as if you do that in this league then you are done, and we’re not done at the moment, we’re not. We’re in with that fighting chance that we’ve talked about, so let’s learn and make sure that we get better rather than feel sorry for ourselves. This group have shown that time after time, we can’t ever give up. If you do against a team like that then they’re ruthless and they keep going, and they were tonight. A tough night for us, but it’s not going to diminish our confidence and our belief in what we’re trying to do.”
