Manager Nathan Jones was delighted his side were able to match league leaders Fulham and earn a well-deserved point at Kenilworth Road.

In the pouring rain, the home fans backed the Hatters to the very last after a second half goal from Elijah Adebayo, cancelling out Aleksandar Mitrovic's early strike.

Reflecting on proceedings post-match, the gaffer said: "We were passive for the first 15 minutes and we conceded from a set-play but apart from that I thought we were excellent.

"I thought we were absolutely outstanding I really did. Their goal is offside and we should have had a penalty in the last minute because it is absolutely clear.

"It’s not even a decision, a few other decisions went against us as well but the intensity, the pressing, the work rat, we looked a threat from the time we just tweaked the shape slightly, we looked a real threat against the best side in the league.

"They can murder teams, they are the highest scorers but I thought we were absolutely outstanding, I’m really proud of my team, our club and the fans were magnificent. I think we gave them a real performance to get behind."

After a host of half-chances up until the goal, defender James Bree produced the vital delivery for Adebayo's tenth goal of the season, and the right-back was supported by the manager when speaking to the press.

"This kid is an excellent player, if we get behind him and develop him I’m telling you now we will be lucky to keep hold of him, he will be another Jack Stacey. He’s quality everyday and he is Premier League quality in terms of what he does.

"He doesn’t hold back with anything he does, he’s dangerous and at times he can end up crossing one into the Oak Road but just get behind him because he’s brave, he gets on it and he backs himself."
