Town Head Coach Mark Fotheringham spoke to HTTV at full-time in Luton, having seen his side draw 3-3 on their travels thanks to goals from Sorba Thomas, Jordan Rhodes and Ben Jackson.

Summing up his feelings, Mark said:

“There was a lot of good aspects to our game tonight, but there were a lot of things that were unsatisfying as well – so there’s a lot of room for improvement.

“That’s the way this group is, there’s a lot of guys that have got a big potential there and I think the more experienced players are coming to the fore now.”

An exciting, end to end affair that was already a much different watch than his first match in charge on Saturday, our Head Coach insisted that in time his team will become a fun side to watch.

“I know that there’s so much work to go, and I know that when we really click into gear we’ll be an exciting team to watch.

“I just felt that everyone is now starting to get a real feeling of who I am as a coach.

“I want as many offensive players as I can get on the pitch, and tonight I had probably four or five in the front line that were really causing Luton problems, so that was a pleasing thing for me.

“We need to get a bit more solid and structure behind the ball, but as I said, I’ve got the players in there, it’s just about stressing them in training to get them to really adapt to it because we know what Sky Bet Championship football is about.”

With both B Team players Etienne Camara and Ben Jackson starting and impacting the outcome of the game positively, Fotheringham had warm words about the Town Academy.

“I really respect my experienced players, they’re fantastic guys and they’re good with this young group. As a Club, we’re going to promote young players.

“So for me to get Ben Jackson playing and the way he scored that goal there is fantastic, and that’s a real credit to the Academy – they work so hard and they’re realty welcoming.

“We’re going to build this relationship here and it’s going to be an exciting place to be.”
