NATHAN JONES POST DONCASTER DRAW

18 February 2017

The Town manager felt his side should have won the game

Hatters boss Nathan Jones believed his side deserved to win at Doncaster this afternoon, despite having to settle for a 1-1 at the league leaders.

Town midfielder Jordan Cook gave the visitors the lead with a driven shot into the bottom left corner early in the second half, before Alfie May brought the game level ten minutes before the final whistle as he tucked the ball past Matt Macey.

The result leaves Jones’ team fourth, five points short of Carlisle who won away at Wycombe.

The Hatters gaffer said: “I am really proud of my team, I thought we were excellent. We came here with a game plan and I thought we were absolutely excellent.

“I thought we deserved to win the game, I didn’t envisage them scoring.

“I thought we looked really dangerous, we had the better chances. I am proud of my team.

“I said to them before, big players turn up in big games and we needed our big players to turn up – and they did.

“There were some outstanding performances. Glen Rea put in a performance in the middle of the park which was outstanding, and I thought Danny Hylton showed why he is the best in the league.”
