Jones' team made it two 1-0 wins on the bounce

A delighted Town boss Nathan Jones was more concerned with three points than the manner of the performance as the Hatters secured victory over Barnet that sees his side leapfrog Stevenage into fourth in Sky Bet League Two.

Hatters midfielder Olly Lee scored the only goal of the game which means Town have now won two on the bounce without conceding, following on from last weekend’s 1-0 victory at home over Blackpool.

Jones said: “I am delighted with the result, obviously at this stage of the season, performance wise we were nowhere near it. To be fair we were a little bit fortunate, Barnet probably had the best chances.

“We had a glorious one in the first half with Isaac Vassell and a few opportunities. But they had a few opportunities and as I said we were nowhere, nowhere near it in terms of our performance.

“What I said to them was get the first goal and keep a clean sheet and win the game and that’s what we did.

“I am proud of them because they gave me everything, we needed a little bit more knowhow, a little bit more guile. But the pitch was very, very difficult, it’s very dry. Barnet have raised their game, that’s the best they have played for a while – I have watched a lot of their games.

“They raise their game when they are playing against us, but look, I am absolutely delighted with the win. It puts us in a great position. Performance wise if I wanted to be critical I could. I’d rather win and play badly at this stage of the season than play brilliantly and lose.”
