Manager Nathan Jones was delighted with the manner of his side's second-half performance as they completed a remarkable turnaround to beat Sheffield Wednesday.

Following a poor first half which saw the Hatters fall two goals behind, Town responded with three goals in the second period, the last of which was scored by Elijah Adebayo – his second in as many starts for the club.

“It couldn’t have been any worse in the second half whatever happened,” the Gaffer admitted. “I knew I was going to get a reaction. We were totally inept first half, got out-battled all over the pitch, out worked. There was nothing elaborate with what Sheffield Wednesday did, they won their headers, put it in the corner.

“Every time they turned the ball over, we were nowhere near and it looked like they should have been further ahead.

“It could have been more, so second half we changed something. We had a real calculated chat and figured out what to do.

"I went with a bit more of what I know, what is tried and trusted at this football club, what has got this football club two promotions and retention in the Championship, and what's done really well this year, and they responded again.”
