The gaffer gives his verdict on 4-1 win over Chairboys
Hatters boss Nathan Jones described today’s 4-1 win over Wycombe as “the best home performance since I’ve been here” – a win that took the Town back to the top of League Two.
Jones said: “That’s the best performance since I’ve been here, in terms of home. I thought for the first 30 minutes we were fluent, we were slick and we should have been out of sight, if I’m honest, by then.
“Then we got the goal, missed the penalty and I thought we were really good. Second half we again started well, we should have been further ahead. We did finally get the second, then they got a goal back and we were just clinical late on.
“A wonderful performance. A wonderful atmosphere. A great day for the club.”
It started with the gaffer, along with head of recruitment and club legend Mick Harford, sharing his letter to Luton Borough Council in support of the planning applications for the new stadium at Power Court and Newlands Park with the 7,500 home fans inside the ground.
Asked about the leaflet, the Welshman’s passion for the club shone through.
“It’s an unbelievable thing,” said Jones. “It’s one of the reasons I came here, because I saw the ambitions of the club and they want to take it forward.
“There are great things happening off the pitch and on the pitch and let’s continue that.
“Everyone will have their own opinions but as fans, this is the best thing for this football club. This will take this football club to another level.
“So all I’m saying to fans is read the leaflet, read our letters and if you feel strong enough, then put your own opinions into the council because every little thing helps. It’s a wonderful thing.
“This stadium and this development will take Luton forward and it adds so much to the economy, so much to the area. It’ll give the football club an unbelievable home. It’ll take the football club to another level and it will take the area to another level.
“I urge the fans; read it, do your homework and get your opinions into the council because this is a great thing and together we can take this forward.”
