Manager Nathan Jones reflected on one of his proudest days in management after his side defeated rivals Watford at Kenilworth Road this afternoon.

James Collins came off the bench in the latter stages and scored with his first touch to give the Town bragging rights on Derby Day!

“Today was all about us,” Nathan said. “For us to do what we did to them, we didn’t just win, we were totally dominant from start to finish. For me it was one of the most complete performances since I have been a manager, considering the opposition and the level.

"We have beaten sides 8-2, 7-0, 7-1 and 5-0 but this was a proper performance in terms of how we worked, how we pressed, everything about it. Doing the ugly stuff, moving the ball, it should have been three or four, if we had a clinical edge about us today.

“It is a significant victory because it is against our local rivals,” the gaffer continued. “We haven’t played here against them in 15 years and the level of performance we put in today was wonderful."

Jones was well aware of the importance of the fixture, saying: "Today, Luton Town totally dominated that game and I’m so proud of them, so proud of our club.

"I want to dedicate that firstly to Gary Sweet, he is a big Luton fan and what he has done with 2020, he has waited for days like this and our fans because imagine if there was fans here today.

"Results like this mean so much to me, so much to our players but even more so to the fans, to the consortium and Gary who heads it, lives it and breathes it. A really good day for us today.”
