NATHAN JONES ON THE 2-1 WIN OVER OXFORD UNITED

2 October 2018

Town boss Nathan Jones felt his side were dominant in their 2-1 win over Oxford United at Grenoble Road this evening as the Hatters claimed their first three away points of the campaign.

After a strong first half performance, the Hatters fell behind early on in the second half when Ricky Holmes fired home in smart fashion, but the Town equalised shortly after when James Collins slotted in from close range.

Dan Potts then grabbed an emphatic last-minute winner as he headed in from Alan Sheehan's cross to seal the Town's first away win of the campaign.

Jones said: "I thought we were as dominant as an away team could be in the first half. I thought we were excellent.

"To be fair to them they gave us massive respect, they matched us up, they played the diamond, they haven't done that. I can't remember Karl Robinson doing that, they showed us massive respect.

"Second half, we didn't actually start slowly, just a bit of quality from Ricky Holmes, we'll be disappointed, we didn't deal with it. But it's a great bit of composure. We went at them and it [the result] doesn't flatter us in any way.

"We keep saying there's a theme of missing chances, we had enough chances to have won far more comfortably. It was a great way to win."
