Buckle unhappy with Luton performance
Blue Square Premiership,
Luton Town boss Paul Buckle could not hide his disappointment after his side drew with Gateshead and failed to secure a play-off place.
A win would have taken the Hatters five points above sixth-placed Kidderminster with just one match left in the Blue Square Bet Premier campaign but now the side's play-off hopes will go down to the final game of the season.
Buckle said: "I think if had come here earlier in the season it would have been a good point.
"But with games running out we're disappointed now to have won because we came here to win the game."
The Luton manager is now eyeing a tough trip to league leaders Fleetwood to secure a play-off place while Harriers also face tricky opposition as they host third-placed Mansfield.
He said: "I've been frank with the players in the dressing room and told them not to feel sorry for themselves as we need to focus on Saturday.
"We've got to dust ourselves down. We weren't at our best tonight but we will need to be at our best on Saturday."
