NATHAN JONES ON THE DRAW AT CARLISLE UNITED

15 March 2017

The point takes the Town into fifth place

Town boss Nathan Jones said he was pleased with the overall performance of his players as they played out a goalless draw at Brunton Park.

The point picked up against Carlisle moves the Hatters into fifth, ahead of sixth placed Stevenage on goal difference.

Both the Cumbrians and the Town had a number of chances to take all three points on the night, but Jones’ side had to settle for a point on the night.

He said: “It was a pretty even game to be fair, we probably had the better chances in the first half, Danny had one that flashed past the post. Then they defended really – well they were defending for their lives late on.

“But, I asked for a response from the weekend and I got it. It’s a shame that we couldn’t have that type of battling performance, that type of on the front foot performance on Saturday, then I have no doubt we would have won the game.

“In terms of that it was good to bounce back, it’s a very difficult place to come. They’re on a bad run, they’ve had a few bad results so they were going to be up for it as well. So it was important that we didn’t lose the game tonight.

“I am pleased with the response, the work rate, the desire to try and get a result, that was in stark contrast to the weekend.”
