Manager Nathan Jones said he is 'so proud' of his players after beating Derby County to move into the play-off places.

The third successive win of the week was the first time Luton have managed that feat in this division since 1996 and the gaffer spoke of how proud he was not only of that achievement, bu the month overall.

"15 out of 18 points is a phenomenal month to have in the Championship. I’m not sure we did that in League Two and League One so to do that in the Championship is wonderful. Nine point week, we haven’t gone three on the bounce before and that is all I wanted today.

"I didn’t particularly mind about the performance, it’s all about the win at this stage now. They’ve put in massive shifts, we didn’t make too many changes because we know we have a big week coming up as well. I’m so proud of the group and I'm proud of Danny after people had written him off.

Hylton and Jerome made the difference just like in midweek in Stoke and on the latter, Jones said: "He’s looking like a proper threat, just when we needed him because we have five or six strikers here and it’s difficult to pick a bench let alone a team. We have people like Carlos Mendes Gomes and Fred Onyedinma that can really change the game for us and make us front-footed.

"Today we were no where near our best but credit Derby because they’ve had to come here and stifle us. We felt if we picked up the tempo we could get something and we did that."
