Press Conference | Nathan Jones pre Coventry City (H)

Manager Nathan Jones said he is ‘desperate’ for a first home win of the season, which he hopes his side can achieve against Coventry City on Wednesday evening (7:45pm).

Firstly, after football halted in England at the weekend out of respect for Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, the Welshman said: “I think with it being the national sport and being a mark of respect, I know it wasn’t compulsory, but I think the situation and with who the situation involved, I definitely think it was the right thing to do as a mark of respect.

“The Queen was a wonderful leader over the period of time that she ruled the country, through difficult times and for me she’s always ruled with integrity and been someone as a leader that you look to, so I definitely think it was the right decision.”

The Hatters suffered defeat last time out against Wigan Athletic following a dramatic late turnaround from the away side in the final 10 minutes.

But despite the loss, Jones is confident that if the Hatters continue to create chances then the results will follow sooner rather than later.

“We’re desperate to get our first three points at home. They won’t be any more dangerous than they are, they want to get points and we want to get points, so it’s going to be a scrap and a fight to get those three points, they don’t want them anymore than we do, so that’s what it comes down to.

“We’ve been very good at home. We were outstanding against Sheffield United and should’ve won the game and deserved to win the game.

“Against Birmingham, we controlled the game and were the dominant force, the same against Wigan, so there’s no issue.

“It’s not like we’ve been really poor at home. We haven’t. We’ve just got to take our chances.

“There’s nothing wrong with playing at home, I love playing at home. Fans will play their part tomorrow under the lights and let’s hope for a really good night again.”
