The month of February would begin in memorable fashion thanks to substitute Harry Cornick’s fine effort off the bench against Swansea, where over 300 travelling supporters witnessed their beloved side move to within three points of the play-off places.
Nathan Jones made his way into the stand to celebrate with those fans after the game, such was the feeling after a big win on the road.
Progression in the FA Cup was sealed with a confident victory at Cambridge and booked a date with eight-time winners, Chelsea.
Before the highly anticipated cup tie however, Jones’ side were in tip-top form as they recorded four wins from their next five matches. Starting with a narrow victory against Barnsley and later bettered with three wins in a week – the first time Luton have managed that feat in the Championship since 1996.
An impressive 2-0 win over recently relegated West Bromwich Albion courtesy of goals from Cameron Jerome and Allan Campbell was followed days later by victory at Stoke, a result that most certainly pleased the gaffer as he celebrated in the rain thanks to goals from the experienced Danny Hylton and Jerome once more.
Hylts proved his worth in the division by netting for the second successive match, this time the decisive winner at home to Derby as the Hatters picked up 15 points from a possible 18, which led to Nathan Jones and Allan Campbell both being nominated for the monthly league awards.
