Glen Rea scored the opener in the first half for the Hatters and although Sonny Bradley scored the equalizer for his side in the 61st minute, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall was able to score the second goal and help his side to achieve three points from the game.

“It’s a massive, massive three points,” Jones said.

“We had a meeting on Monday and we said ‘whatever happens this week, at five o’clock on Saturday we’re not on 27 points’.

“That’s what we started the day on and we wanted to increase our points tally as then we get to the halfway stage.

“To get to the halfway stage and double it, we’re on 27 which would mean we’re on 54, which is better than last year, but we don’t just want to be content with that.

“This is a big, big three points tonight to set us up nicely for the weekend and to move forward.

“They were good goals. The first one is a training-ground routine, then Kiernan has done that for Leicester, he’s done that for Blackpool and that’s part and parcel of why we brought him here.”

Dean Holden

, who did not have all his players available to him due to injury, added:

“We’ve missed a header and we have to improve on set-pieces, we’re conceding too many.

“We fancied our chances to come here and get a result tonight, and we played well enough to get something, arguably deserved to win the game.

“It’s (injury situation) tough. Take those first-team players out of any squad and it will be tough.

“But that’s what we’ve been dealt, that’s the cards we’ve got and we’ve got to use those cards as well as we can.

“The lads are giving everything, we’ve got youngsters on the bench who have never been involved at this level. It won’t be used as an excuse, but it’s tough.

“You don’t sometimes get decisions like that (penalty for Semenyo). I’m not sure why he didn’t give it, but he didn’t.”
