The 8-2 win, against Yeovil Town, was, so I`m informed, Luton`s best ever opening day result.

The Hatters destroyed a Yeovil Town side that had the temerity to take an early lead.

After the game, Nathan Jones was, understandably, absolutely delighted to not only have taken the three points on offer but to have also won so convincingly.

Talking to the local media, Nathan had this to say about the game,

“It’s a dream start in terms of the amount of goals and how clinical we were, but we work a lot on our attacking play so it’s just reward really for the work that we do.

‘It’s a wonderful, wonderful start for us, and we would have taken that all day long, as would anyone else in the world would have.

‘Let`s not be too disrespectful though, they had a penalty which Marek Stech did superbly well and right after half time he had to pull off a wonderful save as well.

‘So at crucial times, we called upon our good players, but we had some wonderful chances and we could have got more.

“We were clinical in our finishing. To score eight in any game at any level is wonderful, but to do it here, in the first game, after the disappointment of last year, kind of puts a few things to bed.”

It does and it gives Luton a decent foundation on which to build a decent start to the season.

Jones, when asked if he could recall ever winning by such a big margin in his career then further added,

“No, I don’t think I have to be honest with you. I’m very proud, I might not look it at my face, these games drain you at times, but I’m very, very proud.

“We’ve had some real good performances here, it’s a great win, it sets us up, puts us top of the league which is where we want to be, but I really want to be top of the league in 10, 11 months time.

“Right now we’re very happy, we’ll enjoy it for a minimum amount of time because we’ll be preparing straight away for Ipswich tomorrow.”
