Hatters boss hails his boys for deserved victory
Hatters boss Nathan Jones was delighted with how his team played in the 3-2 Checkatrade Trophy second round win at Swindon tonight.
Speaking after the game at the County Ground, the Town manager said: “It was a thoroughly enjoyable game – a real good football match. Both sides played with an energy, a tempo and a desire to play the right way.
“I felt it was pretty even in terms of build-up, but we had the better chances and probably could have won by more, although 3-2 was a fair result.”
Josh McQuoid scored twice – his first goals of the campaign – and Isaac Vassell the other, following up his first for the Hatters at Morecambe a fortnight ago, to seal the win.
Jones added: “I’m delighted for Josh, genuinely delighted for him because he’s trained at a real, real good level and he’s deserved probably more than I’ve given him so far this year.
“I’m delighted that he got his goal. It was a shame he couldn’t get another one, but him and Isaac were a danger all night.
“Isaac should have had more himself, but it was great for him to get his goal and he’s really finding his feet. They were a real threat tonight.”
