Another turnaround and another point, possibly three dropped for the Hornet's who were defeated 3-2 at Burnley having taken the lead against the Lancashire outfit.
Manager Malky Mackay was understandably frustrated with his side and having seen similar scenarios against Portsmouth and Crystal Palace recently something has to give soon:
'I'm very disappointed. I've spoken to the players and told them that with the effort they put in and the courage they showed against an experienced side for them to go and lose the game is hard to swallow.
'We are disappointed that we didn't finish the chances we created. At 2-1 against Crystal Palace midweek we had great chances to kill the game off and it was the same.
'They've played really well and created a lot of chances.'
The Hornet's have now slipped to 13th ahead of their visit from Reading next weekend.
Claret's gaffer Brian Laws was a happy man after his side showed the determination to overcome the defecit, former Luton Town man Graham Alexander clinching all three with a penalty:
I think we deserved it for the sheer mentality side of things because it was a real test for us in terms of character and mental strength.'
'I thought we dug in deep even though their equaliser was poor from our point of view and that rocked us a bit. We didn't seem to be at the races after that.
'When their second went in it was almost like 'Groundhog Day' but we made changes and it worked. Sometimes managers make changes and they don't work but it worked.
'Credit to the players who came on because they changed the game. The match wasn't flowing very well and it was almost like head tennis at times.'
