Alfie Doughty hailed the Hatters’ performance at Bramall Lane as they fought back from 2-1 down to record their first back-to-back victories of the season.

“I think the past two games have really shown what we’re about,” said Doughty after the 3-2 win over Chris Wilder’s side.

“We already knew this at the start of the season. It was just about us getting used to the league. 

“I think we’ve come on leaps and bounds. The performances recently have been top. Before, we didn’t really get the results we wanted, but the past two games we’ve got the results.”

Doughty put the Town in front in the first half with his first Premier League goal of his career, silencing the Sheffield United support in the process.

“Some people call it lucky, but I like to put it through the keeper’s legs. It was brilliant. I think we needed that to quieten the fans,” he said.

“It was a perfect evening, though and I’m so proud of the boys. The first half we were amazing, we really dominated. The second half they were a lot better but to win just shows the character of the boys.

“You’ve seen before how we can keep going and going. We went 2-1 down, we’re like ‘that’s fine, the game’s not over’ and this result shows that.

“I’ve loved playing in the Premier League – it’s been enjoyable, a fun. We’ve now got to get the results and if we can I think we’ll be fine.”

Attention now turns to Chelsea on Saturday.

“The past two results have given us a good bit of momentum,” added Doughty. “Even before we’d shown against City and Arsenal that we were playing really well. We beat Newcastle, won today and now we’ve got to take it back to the Kenny for hopefully another three points.”
