Happy with a win but disappointed the margin wasn’t bigger was manager John Still’s verdict after he saw his side earn a 1-0 win over Stockport County.

Steve McNulty’s header a minute before half-time was enough to see off struggling County but despite dominating the game for long spells the Hatters couldn’t find another goal, much to Still’s frustration.

“I’m satisfied with the performance but we should have scored more goals,” the boss told Hatters Player afterwards.

“However, I’m always happy with a clean sheet. Most of our work has been on the defensive side of things. We haven’t done a lot of work attacking wise but we do need to.

“I was pleased with the defensive performance but we have some decent attacking players and we just need to move the ball quicker and be more positive. That’s something we need to work on in the future - I wasn’t happy with that aspect of our game tonight.

“That said, the biggest positive of the night was the victory – a win always is.”

The win was the Town’s first at Kenilworth Road in the Blue Square Bet Premier since a 6-1 win over Barrow in early January and lifts Still’s side to eighth in the table and 10 points off the Play-Offs.

And for Still, building momentum is key.

“It was important to get the first home win,” he said. “We go again on Saturday, it’s our second of three games on the bounce at home so let’s try and win them shall we?

“I want us to be bold, brave and positive. I don’t mind losing when you’re trying to win a game.

“Losing and winning are habits and you can get into either. We’ve got the habit of not conceding at the minute which is pleasing – now we just need to keep winning.”
