Town boss Nathan Jones felt a 1-1 draw with Notts County at Kenilworth Road this afternoon was a fair result as the Hatters maintained their place at the top of Sky Bet League Two.

Town defender Johnny Mullins headed in for his first goal of the season with the half hour mark approaching, before Shola Ameobi equalised midway through the second half.

Results elsewhere mean the Town are now five points clear of third placed Accrington Stanley, and a further point ahead of fourth placed Exeter City.

Jones said: "I think it was a fair result in the end. We were nowhere near where we have been, but let's give some credit to Notts County because they must have contributed to stopping us doing that. I thought it was a very tight game, there was very little in it.

"We scored from a set-play, they scored from a set-play and to be fair all our clear-cut chances came from set-plays and second phase. It was one of those games – a real tight game. For the level it's two good sides and we must be the two best sides in the league because the points say that.

"We're both right on cue, both on 42 points after 21 games, that's what you need to go up [two points-per-game]. I think it's a fair result and let's give credit to Notts County, they came here and worked hard and showed why they are such a good side.

"We have been in good form and we wanted to play a certain way. We didn't quite get that and I have given credit to Notts County for that, so I couldn't berate my players for it."
