Manager Nathan Jones spoke of his pride after his team secured a top-half Sky Bet Championship finish, following the 0-0 draw against Rotherham United.

On the night itself there was nothing to split the two sides, but the gaffer is well-aware of the levels his players have gone to this season to outperform their first campaign back in the division, now comfortably and deservedly a mid-table side.

“I’m so proud of the team because they have shown real honesty and we didn’t give up. We haven’t played flippantly, we have played properly, kept the integrity of the league and our club. We have guaranteed ourselves a top half finish which is some achievement.

“Not a side has come here and has thought it would be an easy game, and anyone that did usually went home pointless. I think teams now are seeing what we are doing and respecting us.

“We have the respect of the Championship, we’re a top half side, we wanted to establish ourselves and I think we well and truly have done that.

"I’m so proud of them because compared to other clubs, we lack so much and compared to other clubs we have more than they have in abundance. I’m so proud of what we have and what we have achieved because a top half finish is beneficial for everyone, on every level.

“If we had said, with one game to go, that we would be on 62 points, guaranteed 12th, every sane Luton fan and person that surrounds this football club would have taken that. I’m sane, and would have taken that!”
