CONTROLLABLES CONTROLLED

26 January 2014

Boss' delight at 3-0 win after three-week break

John Still was happy his side took control of the controllables after the 3-0 win over Nuneaton Town moved the Town three points clear at the top of the table.

The manager wheeled out his customary phrase after hearing that promotion rivals Cambridge had drawn 3-3 at Dartford.

“Dartford haven’t done us a favour, they’ve done themselves a favour,” said Still, “We’ve done ourselves a favour, too.

“We can only do what we can do, we can’t influence what other teams do. Of course it’s nice to hear those [Cambridge’s] results, but all you can do is control the controllables and we did that. It’s a good day.”

Andre Gray’s electrifying second half hat-trick was the difference as the Hatters broke a new club record by extending their unbeaten league run to 20 matches.

It was also the Town’s first league fixture in three weeks and, after a goalless first half, Still was delighted with the way his side performed after the break.

“You never know what’s going to happen after a break like that,” said Still. “We took a while to get going in the first half.

“I said at half-time we needed to up the tempo and I thought we did that in the second half. Nuneaton were decent opposition so we knew we had to be up for it but, fortunately, we were able to score early in the second half and from that point on we looked comfortable.”
