Manager Nathan Jones was delighted to witness a winning response from his team, who fought back from a goal down to beat Middlesbrough!
In front of the Sky Sports cameras on a chilly night at Kenilworth Road, goals in the second period from Sonny Bradley, Elijah Adebayo and Harry Cornick helped Town earn a sixth league win of the season and Jones was rightly pleased with what he saw from his players.
“Any win in the Championship is important, the manager started. “It was really important to bounce back from the weekend where we were well below standard. Even going in at half-time today, one-nil down, I still felt we were in a decent position.
“We were playing quite well, we had chances which we didn’t take because we were missing a clinical edge. Second half we came out really aggressive, really front-footed and got three goals, I thought we were excellent."
Following a disappointing team performance on Saturday, the gaffer made five changes to freshen things up, which paid off as the Hatters went back into the play-off places.
“I made five changes tonight, none of those were because of bad performances, we made changes tonight to freshen up the group so that we could go tonight and be front-footed. No disrespect, Pelly had one of his worst games for us on Saturday but sometimes you keep faith with people and to a man, I thought the players were excellent.”
