Luton Town fell to a 2-1 defeat away to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon, a result that condemned The Hatters to their sixth game without a Championship win.
Philip Billing and Dominic Solanke fired the hosts into a two-goal advantage going into the break, before Reece Burke halved the deficit with 65 minutes on the clock.
Despite excellent, sustained pressure from the away side, Luton were unable to find a leveller against the team who find themselves at the second-tier summit.
Luton, who have not tasted victory since a 1-0 win away to Barnsley on the 17th of August, will be hoping to change their fortunes when high-flying Coventry City visit Kenilworth Road tomorrow evening.
Despite performance levels remaining relatively high of late, Nathan Jones will be disappointed not to have won three points in almost six weeks.
Quiz: Have Luton Town ever been involved in these 18 scenarios?
Speaking to Luton Today, Jones looked back to Saturday’s defeat at Bournemouth: “The character is never in question with players at this club, they wouldn’t be here if they didn’t have character.
“Teams are scoring with pretty much every chance. We conceded three from outside the box the other day (against Swansea), not inside our own box, three shots on target, three goals and that’s what’s happening to us at the minute.
“Something has to change, whether that’s personnel, whether that’s tactics, something has to change, and then we have to be clinical.
“As they’re not missing chances from 20 yards where they duck inside and curl it in, these are gilt-edged chances that we’re missing and that’s costing us points.”

The injuries Jones is having to deal with at present is making his job extremely hard, especially when several players have been injured in the warm-up before matches recently.
The fact that he is suggesting personnel change could mean that he might have a few more players available for tomorrow night’s clash with Coventry.
Tactically speaking, Jones has deployed various formations to try and gain the upper hand, so it will be interesting to see if he does make any tweaks.
Performance levels have not been the problem for Luton, meaning that they will go into Wednesday night’s contest with The Sky Blues with every bit of confidence of returning to winning ways.
