Manager Nathan Jones was delighted the Hatters were able to reach the 50-point mark after defeating Preston North End at Deepdale this afternoon.
The Hatters forced a breakthrough with seven minutes to play after James Collins’ header was deflected into the back of the net by goalkeeper Daniel Iversen, a goal the team deserved for their efforts throughout the 90 minutes.
“To come away from home and to get three points is magnificent, especially here which is a difficult place to come. I have come here with Stoke and got beaten. Alex is renown for putting teams out that are very difficult to beat, they work hard and have quality, but I felt we were the better side today.
“We came here really positive, played a diamond and we might have made it slightly easier for ourselves but we’re delighted with the win and to get the win away from home to back-up our performances.
“We felt comfortable and then it was just about us stepping it up. I can’t second guess what anybody else is going to do, we just felt if we could step it up then the game was there. We did step it up slightly in the second half but it took three substitutions to get us over the line but we’re delighted.
“It is a tough place to come and we have had games where we haven’t quite got what we deserved and there were margins today but we came out on the right side.”
