Manager Nathan Jones dedicated this evening’s away victory against Barnsley to Big Mick as the Hatters claimed their second win of the league campaign.

Amari’i Bell’s early strike proved decisive as the Town extended their unbeaten run in Yorkshire to just shy of two years!

The gaffer, was without doubt, delighted with what he saw from his players and admitted wins such as tonight’s are the ‘best ones’.

“It is a difficult place to come, they cause you real problems. They have youth, athleticism and they play in a certain way. We wanted to make sure we started better than we did the other day, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

"We got the ball into our front players and created problems, Sluga had one real save to make and I thought we had more clear-cut chances but it was a tight game.

"We worked, we dug in late on, probably could have broken to win 2-0 because it wasn’t a foul but really proud of them, we don’t want to go back-to-back defeats.

Continuing, Nathan said: “I gave them a rocket on the weekend, but they deserve all the accolades they are going to get tonight. Another wonderful win away from home, so proud of them and that one was for Big Mick. We all know he started his treatment today so that one was for Big Mick, we’re so proud and it sets us up for two really important home games now.”
