Luton recorded their first win after coming from behind since 21st April 2014 and 98 games, in a topsy turvy encounter at the Kassam Stadium. Danny Hylton opened the scoring in the second minute, before a late first half turnaround from Joe Pigott, restored to the starting line up after a pretty calamitous second half performance on Tuesday, and Olly Lee. Chey Dunkley's free header early in the second period equalised terms, before Pigott again popped up with the winner shortly after.

Leaves Luton still 6 points off the play offs with just 4 games left, a tall ask, while Oxford's defeat seals Northampton's League 2 title.

Nathan Jones' post-match interview:


Interested to hear what fans of other teams think of him?

As a manager, he'll probably be a good manager 5 years down the line, but I'm not impressed with his attitude with the media of late.

Two quotes that stick with me from Tuesday night: "I'm patting myself on the back" and "that was great management by me" after Pelly Ruddock scored.

I get the impression the 'great management' thing was a bit tongue in cheek. However he doesn't suffer fools and I don't think he enjoys the generic, formulaic interview process. It's almost as he wants to talk about what he wants to and not necessarily the questions Pitts is asking him. I will say I love his honesty though. With Still we got an awful lot of waffle, especially after poor performances. Jones on the other hand is incredibly blunt and honest, and I like that in a manager.

He does need the calm down a bit mind, he looks like the worlds most paranoid crack addict at times.

Nathan Jones is brilliant, end of story. Is he not allowed to give himself credit?

He comes across as an angry man who takes offence at anything and anyone, and doesn't like doing interviews. I'd like him to take a chill pill (does anyone say that anymore?). Strange for a deeply religious man.

Though as long as he gets things sorted ON the pitch I don't really care what he says in interviews.

He reminds me of Richard Money to be honest. If things start going south on the pitch I think his style will grate very very quickly. Our supporters seem to need to have their egos stroked, Jones will not do that.

Reminds me of Richard Money on a worse scale - that interview was after a win against a top 3 side. How about a defeat next season v relegation fodder?

Regarding the comment about Luton fans needing their egos massaged; we don't do anything that any other set of fans don't. We cheer when we win, we boo when we play poorly. What is different than what Luton fans do in the stand compared to what Jones does on the touch line - stamping his feet and shouting at his players?
