Manager Nathan Jones was rightly delighted with this afternoon’s 2-0 win against Millwall, the first win against the Lions since 2005.
Harry Cornick scored a goal either side of half-time to extend Luton’s unbeaten run to three games in the Sky Bet Championship and the Hatters were good value for the victory.
“It is a tough place to come," Jones started. “We learned lessons from last year where there wasn’t much in the game but at crucial points, we got overpowered a little bit. That wasn’t the case today, I thought we were excellent from start to finish. Apart from one little blip with the penalty, we thoroughly deserved what we got.
“There were crucial parts in the game where we were excellent, we scored at good times and after the second goal I thought we would go on and get the third. It wasn’t to be but it was wonderful nonetheless, not many come here and win but I thought we were excellent and it shows that we have a different side to us now and I’m really pleased with that performance.
On Cornick’s involvement, the gaffer was impressed at just how well the forward took his chances.
“The first one is top drawer. If Ronaldo or Harry Kane does that then people are drooling. The second one, he works constantly on those positions, he had three sessions this week on that finish, and he wants to work. His all-round play is wonderful, he works tirelessly, the distance and intensity, he is proving that he is a wonderful player.”
