"I've just said to the boys, ‘I'll eat my words at the end of the season if [Luton Town] doesn't get promoted,’ because they've even kicked on a level. Fair play to them, Mick [Harford] has done a fantastic job. I'm really pleased as he's a really good friend as well Mick. It's a good side he's got here. Their rotation in midfield, the full backs are superb, two of the best full backs that get forward in the league and they kept us quiet for big periods of the game.

“I just said to the boys, you stayed in the game right up until 82 minutes and I think we started getting a few nervous fans in the place. But their strength is too much, they’ve got some great subs to put on. They’ve got some good people sat in the stands that would get in most teams, never mind on their bench, they’re a great side and I think they’ll get promoted this season.

"We rode our luck a little, again I thought we started the game well, first five, 10 minutes and then they really grew into it. We had a plan, it’s a similar plan we had for the last four or five times and I think that shows how much Luton have grown as a club, as four or five years ago, we really matched them."
