Manager Nathan Jones was disappointed his sides’ positive performance against Reading didn’t earn them three points, but the gaffer was pleased with a second successive clean-sheet.
Jones felt the Hatters had the chances to win the match but after collecting four points from Watford and the Royals this evening, it is a step in the right direction for the team after they moved up to 12th position.
“I thought we were excellent,” the manager began. “If I’m honest I’m a little bit disappointed that we didn’t win the game. Delighted with the level of performance, especially coming off the back of a high-level performance against Watford. We backed that up today against a wonderful football side that if you let them settle, they can hurt you.
"We went after them and I thought we controlled the tempo, we were aggressive in everything that we did and probably with a bit more quality we would have gone into half-time in the lead.
“Late on they threw every centre-forward they have in their squad on the pitch to try and win the game and fair play to them, but we had all the best chances, the better of possession and I was really pleased with the performance. It shows that we are evolving nicely and we showed real aggression. I am really happy with the performance, little bit disappointed with the result.”
