Watch | Nathan Jones' Barnsley reaction!

Nathan Jones was pleased his side were able to get over the line with a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Barnsley.


Allan Campbell and Elijah Adebayo ensured the Hatters would extend their unbeaten run to five matches in all competitions despite winning ugly, to which the manager said: “Sometimes you have to do that in the Championship. It is a good trait to have, we didn’t play particularly well and they are a difficult side to play against because they overload similar to Swansea in midfield. They play with a front man and they can cause you some problems.

“I thought the first half was a little bit slow but second half we were much better and we limited them to very, very little. A year ago, two seasons ago, we would have lost that game and so to do that in a scrappy game shows that we can dig these wins out as well.

“We should have had a penalty first half, it was a stonewall penalty and if Kal Naismith hadn’t tried to be Kaldini and try a backheel right on half-time it could have been far more comfortable.

"There’s lot of things to learn but I would have taken any win tonight because when we play teams at the top of the league we raise our game but we can also do it when sides are fighting for their live and come here and play with freedom.”
