Hatters manager Rob Edwards was proud of the football club today but explained that "we want more points" after Premier League defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

"We are disappointed," said Edwards. "Of course, there was hard work in the performance and there was good quality in the second half from us.

“We showed a lot of bravery on the ball, and our fans know we aren’t a team that necessarily dominates on the ball.

“To grow on the ball in one of the best stadiums in the world and in the toughest league in the world is difficult, so the boys showed incredible bravery.

“It was harder to break United down later in the game as they got more players behind the ball, we just needed to find moments in the game at the right times and create some chances.

“I saw a determination, a steel, a grit about us in that first half, we rode our luck once or twice but had a chance of our own through Carlton’s header and it was important to stay in the game.

“The support we had from the fans was incredible today, it was very important at the beginning that we showed that respect which we did immaculately, and then I could hear them the whole game.

“It made me really proud to be representing this club and I hope everyone has a safe journey home. Take a lot from it, be proud of the football club today, but we are greedy and we want more points.”
