WATCH: NATHAN JONES - STANLEY REACTION

12 November 2016

Jones shares his thoughts after the Hatters 1-0 win over Accrington Stanley

Town boss Nathan Jones was over the moon with his side after they battled to a 1-0 victory over Accrington Stanley at Kenilworth Road.

Cameron McGeehan’s deflected strike 15 minutes from the full-time whistle extended the Hatters’ unbeaten run in the league to eight games. 

The visitors frustrated Jones’ side for long periods of the game, as goalkeeper Elliot Parish made a number of key saves to deny the Hatters, but once they made the breakthrough they managed to see out the result. 

Jones said after the match: “I am very pleased. It’s a big win for us.

“It shows how far we have come. Accrington came here last season and won 2-0 and I don’t think we believed we could beat teams in the top three or four, but this result is a massive one.

“They [Accrington] sat in and they weren’t their usual self, for what they normally play. Again, another team change for us, I thought we were excellent. 

“It wasn’t fluent in the first half, the crowd started getting a bit edgy. But they stayed with us, fair play to them and we gave them a second half performance and it should have been a lot more.

“I am proud to be manager of my club today. I am really proud of how we kept playing, we didn’t launch it, we don’t go how other teams go. We stuck to our principles and showed a level of character that was absolutely brilliant.”
