Manager Nathan Jones described victory against Hull City as ‘excellent’ after his side recorded their third consecutive away win.
Town raced into the lead inside the first six minutes and doubled their advantage just before the break courtesy of a superb long-range strike from Henri Lansbury.
With back-to-back wins as well as back-to-back clean sheets, Jones was all smiles after the game.
“It was an excellent performance, it really was. It was probably a trickier game than we made it look because the change of manager can have an adverse effect, or an uplift but we had to concentrate on ourselves and I thought we did that fantastically.
“First half they had a little bit of play in wide areas, but we had all the best chances and once we got through the press, we smothered them, won the ball back and were aggressive in our play. We should have been more than two up at half time, Carlton had a great chance, we had a few situations that we could have done more with but second half our game management was fantastic.
“We always believe we have goals in us, we have game-changers and once we put in that level of performance in at the first half then it was about trying to go after the third but if you cant make sure you defend well and I thought we did. We lost Reece Burke, Gabe Osho came in and did fantastically well. Amari’i has been flying all over the place so it just shows the quality and what we have.
“I’m really pleased because it is a tough place to come and I’m delighted with the win.”
