Watch | Nathan Jones' take on Huddersfield draw

Nathan Jones admitted it was a fair result as the two sides head into the second leg level after a 1-1 draw at Kenilworth Road.


Danel Sinani had given Huddersfield Town an early lead before captain Sonny Bradley replayed on the half-hour mark.

It was a tight contest and one the gaffer thought his side controlled in the first-half particularly, he told BBC Three Counties Radio.

“I thought we were excellent first half, really were front-footed and controlled the game. We got hit on the counter attack but I thought we were excellent, had some real good chances and just a little bit disappointed we didn’t have a lead.

“Second half they came into it, controlled the play a little bit more in front of us without causing us masses of problems and I thought we defended our box fantastically well. Could have changed things a little bit earlier to be honest with you to combat that but, odd as evens, pretty fair result and we move on.”

Talking about the electric atmosphere throughout the 90 minutes, Jones added: “The crowd were brilliant. It was a wonderful night this, Championship play-off game, the winner goes to Wembley and the winner of that goes to the Premier League so the stakes are massive.

“These are an excellent side, they finished third in the league but in the games the margins have been so small and again they were exactly the same.”
