Watch | Nathan Jones' reaction to Cardiff win!

Nathan Jones was delighted to mark a brilliant Easter period with a second win over the Bank Holiday period against Cardiff City.


His side earned their victory thanks to Harry Cornick’s second half strike, but his initial reaction was one of disappointment after losing three more players to injury during the match.

“It comes at a cost all the time. We’re at our limit at the minute but we’re somehow finding a way to win games. Two 1-0’s over Easter, six points over Easter and we’re at our limit.”

Speaking on James Bree’s injury, Jones said: “It’s a diabolical challenge. I’ve had a go at the linesman because they have one job to do. The player has crossed it and he’s absolutely gone through him. We’ve suffered for it. It could be (a bad injury), the boy hasn’t meant to do it, but he’s caught him really late after he’s crossed it.”

On a more positive note, the Hatters further strengthened their play-off hopes, to which the manager added: “If I was other teams I’d be thinking something different about Luton Town but when you’re the manager of Luton Town and the stakes are so high you don’t allow yourself that luxury to consider anything. We need probably four points to guarantee everything so let’s see.

Any time is a good time (to score), especially if you can keep a clean sheet. I thought we were a lot better second half, first half we were passive, we allowed them to move the ball but we’ve had a massive game on Friday against one of the toughest opponents you can come up against in the Championship at the minute.

Finally on goalscorer Harry Cornick, the Welshman spoke of his impact off the bench to score the winner.

“I pulled him yesterday and said ‘how do we get the best out of you’ because he has been fantastic for us. He toils, he works so hard and he gives massive shifts but he didn’t get near anyone the other day. We let someone else toil and then you come on and hopefully you get the benefit, and he did.”
