Hatters forward Jordan Clark is on his way to becoming a fan’s favourite more and more every game after scoring his second winning goal of the week in yesterday’s 2-1 victory against Derby County.
Clark was brought on in the 83rd minute and got on the scoresheet just four minutes later, when he brilliantly got on the end of Rhys Norrington-Davies’ cross to ensure he had the ‘game-changing’ effect manager Nathan Jones craves from his substitutes.
Speaking to the local press after the game, Clark was quick to recognise his impact but praised the teams’ effort throughout the 90 minutes against a tough Derby side.
“Game-changer, that’s what he wants from the subs. Come on and make an impact and there is no better way to make an impact than to score the winner, so I’m pleased and delighted to get the win. I thought the lads that played the full game worked their socks off. It was a tough game, they’re a good side, there is no easy game in this division but really pleased.”
Town blew the Rams away at times during the first half and created a number of good openings too, which eventually led to the opener scored by Luke Berry.
“Some of the football we played first half was brilliant, like we were saying on the bench probably the best we have played throughout pre-season and first two games in the league. It was great to watch, disappointed we didn’t get one or two more goals but fair play to them, they came out second half.
“It was a game of two halves. We bossed the game first half and then they sort of took control second half, defended quite deep but they have good players, a lot of young lads and obviously more experienced players which have all got good quality and played at this level for a long time so it was tough. Stuck at it, defended well, obviously nicked a goal right at the end but like I said, it was a good game. Coming on to make an impact is what I’m about.”
