MICK HARFORD PROUD AS HIS TEAM EQUAL THE CLUB RECORD

Another home win over Wycombe sees the Hatters equal 19-game unbeaten run

9 February 2019

Hatters interim manager Mick Harford spoke of his pride at seeing the current team writing their names into the Luton Town history books this afternoon by equalling the club record 19-game unbeaten run in the Football League.

Town continued their sequence without defeat, which kicked off following the 3-2 loss at Barnsley in mid-October, by seeing off Wycombe 3-0 - Sky Bet League One player of the month for January, James Collins, netting his 19th goal of the season in the first half before George Moncur scored two late goals to seal the win after coming on as a substitute.

The win, combined with results elsewhere, means the Town now have a nine-point cushion over third place, and Harford said: "It was a tough encounter against a good Wycombe team. They make it very hard for you, it was a real physical game and the pitch wasn't great with all the rain, and it was a bit windy and bumpy.

"But I think we overcame everything that they threw at us and when we got the ball down and played our football, we were by far the better team and in my opinion, thoroughly enjoyed the victory.

"We created chances and got in down the sides of their diamond with Jack Stacey and James Justin, Jack especially in the first half put some great balls into the box. Collo got on the end of one to make a great finish, and there were various other opportunities where we could have gone further ahead.

"But Wycombe are a good outfit and they defend very well and they've got experienced players who make it very difficult for you.

"I am absolutely thrilled and delighted to come away with the clean sheet and a 3-0 victory. I'm so proud of the players because I said to them in there that there has been a lot of good players who have gone through this football club, and there's been a lot of good teams down the years, and they are now in the history books.

"I'm really delighted for them and proud of them that they've made it in there in terms of equalling a club record, so I take my hat off to all the players for what they've done so far this season - it's a great achievement."
