NJ | "IT'S A BIG WIN FOR US AND IT KEEPS US IN THE HUNT"

Watch the Gaffer's interview after Town's superb 2-0 win against Huddersfield

10 July 2020

Hatters boss Nathan Jones was full of praise for his team after they earned an important three points away at Huddersfield Town this evening.

Goals from Sonny Bradley and a superb strike from Elliot Lee were enough for the Town, who are now within two points of safety and off the bottom of the table.

“It was a wonderful, wonderful performance," said Jones. "To be honest with you, apart from the Reading result which is totally out of character, that's how we've been in recent weeks.

"I thought we were magnificent tonight, tactically we were brilliant. They came out of the blocks and they really tried to press us, we weathered that and we played through it. We were the more dangerous side, I’ve got to be honest.

"First half we had some opportunities where a little bit more composure could have caused them problems, but we scored early in the second with the set play and I don’t think they troubled us, the goalkeeper didn’t have had a shot to save.

“I thought defensively we were excellent and structurally we were good. They gave me a huge, huge shift.

“There are some people in there that haven’t played. Elliot Lee has hardly played. Andrew Shinnie has hardly played and to give me that shift, I was so proud of them.

“We’ve had to use the squad. We said it was going to be so important. I know this group, I know what they give me. There is a few in the group that I don’t know, but I’m getting to know. It’s such a good group, and it’s such a pleasurable group to work with.

"Ever since I came to Luton I have enjoyed my job and since I’ve returned now, nothing has changed. It’s a big win for us that and it keeps us in the hunt.”
