Luton Town picked up a badly needed win this week, seeing off Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 at Kenilworth Road.
The Hatters have always looked an outside bet to survive the drop but thanks to James Collins’ 23rd minute goal, and his tenth of the season, some momentum may be about to be built.
But what would have pleased manager Graeme Jones most in midweek?
We take a look at THREE things here…
This was just the Hatters’ second clean sheet of the league season and will probably have pleased Jones more than anything else.
Frequently this season, Luton have looked like a good bet to take a point or even a win from games, only for silly mistakes or poor organisation at the back to cost them.
If they can maintain this new found solidity, however, survival could be on the cards.
There was plenty to admire about this Luton performance but one of the most eyecatching was the confidence with which they played.
At the this stage of the season, it would not be a surprise to see The Hatters cowering and showing more caution in their approach to games.
But Jones has clearly built up a confidence in his methods throughout the squad and that showed with how they took the game to Wednesday during the week.
QUIZ: How much do you know about Luton’s January signings?
Manager’s always say that they only have eye’s for their own side’s performances, but we all know that probably isn’t true.
With Barnsley losing and Wigan throwing away a one-goal lead against Middlesbrough, Luton asserted themselves that little bit more as the team who will make it out of the drop zone if any are going to.
Stoke City and Huddersfield Town both losing will have made him very happy too, knowing that the seven point gap could now be closed very quickly if they can build some momentum.
