Manager Nathan Jones was content with a point after fighting back to draw an entertaining contest against Millwall at Kenilworth Road.

Benik Afobe’s late goal looked to have sealed an away win for the Lions but for a later own goal by Jake Cooper, a result that means the Hatters stayed in fourth place.

Assessing the game post-match, Jones said: “It’s not a bad point, I’ve said in there we want to win every game, especially here at Kenilworth Road, but Millwall are a good side. They do things similar to us, they run hard, they work hard, they have good experience and a hell of a lot of firepower out there. For us to be disappointed with a draw is natural but shows where we’ve come from.

“They probably edged the first half but second half I thought we were more us. We came out the blocks, Harry Cornick had a glorious chance to put us 2-1 ahead and then the second goal came at a time where we were in the ascendency.

"We made some bad decisions in transition and we worked on that this week which is the disappointing thing but then to show the character to come back, great delivery from Snods, that’s why we brought him here in terms of showing his quality. It’s a real important point because if not they go three points behind us and it brings another team into the mix.

“That keeps them at a distance, they’re not out of it by any means but it was important if we didn’t win the game, that we didn’t lose it either. It’s tight now, teams will lose and win but it’s another point.”
