Watch | Nathan Jones reacts to Reading victory!

Manager Nathan Jones spoke of his tremendous pride after the Hatters secured their place in the play-off places with a 1-0 win against Reading.


Harry Cornick’s goal on the stroke of half-time was the difference between the two sides at Kenilworth Road and secured a date with Huddersfield Town in the semi-finals.

Speaking post-match to BBC Three Counties Radio after the match, the gaffer said: “I’m just pleased we won the game so we didn’t have to rely on anyone else, as it is we’ve got to 75 points. If someone said at the start of the season you could have 75 points – which was in our presentation – we would have taken 75 points all day long.

“We’ve been magnificent all season with what we’ve had to contend with, it came down to the last game of the season but we were here two years ago to beat Blackburn to stay in the league, and now we have an opportunity to play definitely two games to get out of the league. What a wonderful place to be, I’m so proud of the whole football club.

“We’ve had to go through a lot of psychology here and show that we’re a wonderful football club. It’s not the manager, it’s not the CEO, it’s not just the board, it’s not just the fans, collectively we are stronger and that is what we have to keep doing.”
