The gaffer was delighted with the away victory

Hatters boss Nathan Jones was over the moon with his side’s performance at Bloomfield Road as his side put two past Blackpool without reply. 

Town striker Jack Marriott curled in from ten yards in the first half to give his side the lead, before Cameron McGeehan headed in from James Justin’s cross just after the break to double his side’s lead and secure the three points.

The result put Town five points between themselves and Blackpool, who had been in a good run of form going into this afternoon’s fixture. 

Speaking after the match, Jones said: "That’s as good an away performance I have seen from anyone at this level. 

"I thought we were majestic, I really do. I can’t think of many adjectives to describe our performance but we were clinical. 

"We were ruthless, we worked hard. We looked solid. 

"They had one or two opportunities from distance on the counter attack, but apart from that we negated a side that hasn’t lost in nine at home who score in threes and fours past people and taking teams apart. 

"Without being too disrespectful I thought we did that to them today."
