A number of Coventry City supporters were left frustrated with the performance of Jake Clarke-Salter during the Sky Blues’ 5-0 thrashing away at Luton Town on Wednesday night.
Mark Robins’ side went into the game in great spirits following their 3-0 win against Peterborough United on Friday that saw them secure their sixth win in their opening nine matches.
However, the Sky Blues were brought crashing down to earth with a huge bump after being blown away by a sensational performance from Luton on the night.
Coventry’s cause was not helped by numerous individual errors throughout the pitch on a very difficult night for them that they will have to swiftly put to one side and try and move on from.
Clarke-Salter was one of many players to endure a torrid evening under the lights at Kenilworth Road, and was guilty of being wasteful in possession giving the ball away 30 times.
While down his side of the field with Ian Maatsen, Luton did a lot of their damage and they were never really able to get to grips with that issue.
The defener did at least manage to make six clearances and five interceptions, but the fact he still endured a difficult evening despite those strong numbers shows how tough a night it was for him and Coventry.

Many Coventry fans were left frustrated with the defender’s performance at Luton, but it is hard to single out just one player on an evening like that.
