Town boss Nathan Jones felt it was a fair result against Barnsley today as the two sides played out a goalless draw.
The result sees the Hatters remain in second spot in Sky Bet League One, with Portsmouth moving five points clear at the top and Sunderland are now just two points behind with two games in hand.
Jones said: "I thought it was a really good game, a really good game of football. Two good sides – they're a very good side, as I have said I felt they're the best we have played this season up there.
"They're a side that are physical, they press, they work hard and they can push you off your stride if you're not at it and they restricted our passing game today, they really did. Especially early on they had that. On the balance of play I thought it was a fair result, overall I think we have had slightly more chances, but you'd expect that being the home side and I think it's a fair result and a good result.
"These are a good and we've got to remember where we came from, they were Championship last year, so this time last year we were two leagues apart, and now we are six points above them. we have come a long way."
