Watch | Nathan Jones' reaction to draw against Huddersfield Town

Manager Nathan Jones reflected on today’s 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town in a positive manner after picking up four points on the road this week.

Town led in the 21st minute courtesy of George Moncur’s first goal of the season in just his second start of the campaign, before Carel Eiting levelled for the hosts in the second period.

The Hatters now head into the two-week international break in 10th position and the gaffer was happy with what he saw from his players this afternoon.

“Definitely a good point, to come here, two years they were a Premier League side, we come up against teams like these week-in, week-out. Not only that, they had an extra day's rest which is a vital factor and I think second half we just ran out of steam a little bit.

“We looked a little bit tired second half but four points on the road, that’s what you have to remember. It is not just the point we had today but four points on the road and I would have taken that at the beginning of the week.

“Really delighted, proud of the work rate, proud of the desire to get a result and as I said, ideally would have loved three points but we always do.

“People are putting in massive shifts, people like Matty Pearson, Sonny Bradley, Martin Cranie. They’ve played so many 90 minutes, Pelly-Ruddock, it has taken its toll and then it waters down.

“We would have loved to have had a real sharpness about us second half, but we are just repeating games, games and games. We needed to get to this point.

"If someone had said to me after Saturday’s game you are going to get four points on the road, be where you are in this international break, we would have taken that all day long.”
