Watch | Nathan Jones' reaction to victory against Sheffield Wednesday

Manager Nathan Jones was delighted to get back to winning ways after this afternoon’s 1-0 victory against Sheffield Wednesday.


Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu’s second half strike was the difference between the two sides as the Hatters moved up to 9th place in the Sky Bet Championship.

Reflecting on the match at Hillsborough, Nathan said: “Absolutely delighted. More than anything with the result because that is the be all and end all, especially after two difficult results to take, especially the Stoke game which was tough to take for me, and for us, to really, considering how well we played first half. I'm delighted with the overall performance and especially the win.

"What we said at half-time, I said one word – Stoke. First half we were far better than Stoke, we should have gone ahead and we didn’t. With them scoring straight after it was a real killer blow. But today, they didn’t.

“We started better second half, got into the flow, they had little spells in the game but I felt we were well worth the win. I’m disappointed we didn’t go in ahead at half-time, at least two, because we had two glorious chances.

“You really, really need to take them at this level, but 1-0 away from home is possibly the best result and you know when you come to Hillsborough, you will have a difficult time.

“We always say about progression. We came here in my last game in my first spell and we drew 0-0 and we were excellent. So, it is a progression, because we were excellent today and we won the game.”
