NATHAN JONES ON THE WIN OVER BARNET

31 December 2016

The Town boss was pleased with his side's victory

Hatters boss Nathan Jones was delighted with his side’s performance as they beat Barnet 3-1 at Kenilworth Road.

Alan Sheehan’s wonderful free-kick gave Town the lead on the half hour mark, before being pegged back by Bira Dembele’s far post finish eight minutes before half-time.

Town came out in the second half and started the brighter, with Cameron McGeehan finishing acrobatically from ten yards, before Alex Gilliead curled in from the edge of the Bees’ box into the bottom right corner to secure the three points.

Speaking after the match, Jones said: “I am really pleased, it was a difficult first 45 minutes, Barnet played well.

“They are a good side and to be fair they have got some really good players, some physical players, some technical players.

“We stuttered a little bit. We started very well actually and maybe could have taken the lead in the first 15 minutes, we were really on the front foot and then it’s quite an even game.

“We’ve got a goal from a wonderful free-kick. They scored from a little bit of second phase, so at half-time it was probably a fair result.

“In the second half, we asked them to come out and lift the tempo a little bit and they did that.

“They deserved the win and I am very pleased.”
