Manager Nathan Jones said he was delighted following the return of supporters for today’s 3-0 win against Peterborough United.
Kicking-off the 2021/22 Sky Bet Championship campaign in style with goals from Elijah Adebayo, Harry Cornick and Fred Onyedinma, the Hatters returned to action in front of a sold-out Kenilworth Road in style.
On the ovation he and his players received, Jones said: “I was very appreciative of the reception I got and with a full house, the team really gave them something to get behind, they will go home happy today and it was a good day all round.”
Continuing, the gaffer reflected on what proved to be a fantastic afternoon: “Very pleased with how we looked, the athleticism, pace and power we played with, I think if we had started better then it may have been a different score line again.
“We felt our way into the game rather than taking it by the scruff of the neck. If I am honest, I felt we could have been a little bit more clinical as well but don’t think we should be moaning at a 3-0 win!
“It is always good if the front three scoring. Admiral (Muskwe) nearly scored at the end as well, Carlos come and did well and it showed we have strength in depth, real pace, power and impact. We’re delighted, it was a good win.”
