Manager Nathan Jones was pleased with his team’s performance in the 0-0 draw against Bournemouth this afternoon.

The Hatters successfully managed to shut-out the promotion chasers who have lost just twice in the Sky Bet Championship this season and arguably created enough to win the game too.

Upon reflection pitchside, the gaffer said: “I think that is the general consensus really, beforehand we know we come up against Bournemouth, it’s not about budget, it’s about the standard of players they have.

"Players that they had in the Premier League, free-flowing. We probably would have taken a draw before the game, but as the game went on, I probably wouldn’t have.

“We had better chances, better situations, real good situations which, in the first half we got in behind their back three, just couldn’t find the final ball.

“It was a great save from Danny Hylton, probably not a penalty (on Nombe) but he’s clean through and pulled back, it’s a sending off and a free-kick which would have given us an opportunity late on, so let’s not forget that because they are a fantastic side.

“They and Norwich will go up, barring something disastrous, because they have enough fire power, enough games to get promoted from this league. So for us, it’s a positive.

"We have kept a lot of clean sheets lately. We should have kept one midweek, we should have scored midweek, should have got something from the game. It doesn’t flatter us at the minute, we know we’re not their level but we’re on 27 points, we should have 33 minimum.

“We should be top six, we should be in and around that because of the level of performances. Forest here, should have won, Birmingham should have won and we should have got something midweek.”
