Manager Nathan Jones was pleased with his sides’ ‘battling performance’ which earned them a point on their travels against Burnley this afternoon.

Dan Potts saw his early opener cancelled out by Josh Brownhill’s second half strike, but the Hatters were able to limit their opponents to just a single shot on target, and were good value for a draw at Turf Moor.

Assessing the game with BBC Three Counties after the match, Jones said: “They dominate possession and they will do that in the Championship this year, but apart from that I felt we had better situations especially first-half.

“It was a battling performance, I thought we defended wonderfully. They had a lot of situations around our box but nothing clear-cut, the only chances they had were from outside the box and I thought we defended wonderfully well and you have to do that in the Championship because they are a good side.”

With back-to-back draws, the gaffer admitted: “I’m pleased overall, I know we haven’t won yet but at this stage we had three points – beat Peterborough and lost to West Brom. We should have won the first game and today I thought we put in a real good performance.”
