Hatters boss Nathan Jones insists progress is being made already by his side as they host Yeovil Town this evening.

The former Brighton & Hove Albion first team coach has not even completed a month in charge at Kenilworth Road, but saw enough during the 2-0 defeat against Notts County to believe his changes are being implemented.

“I feel that we’ve made good strides in terms of implementing things though.”

Jones said: “I think we’re in a reasonable run of form. Certain decisions on the weekend killed us in terms of goals, but in terms of our overall performance, think there was a progress there, which is what we’re trying to do.

“What we’re asking of them is a change in certain principles. That will take time to implement and I thought a lot of that came to fruition on Saturday.

“It was a shame that we couldn’t get a goal in the first half which might have changed things, might have lifted the place, then it was bad decisions really in terms of their goals, which anyone can say.

“I feel that we’ve made good strides in terms of implementing things though, how we try to do stuff.

“So I’m not too down, not really upbeat, it’s a building thing and Tuesday gives us a game to bounce back from a defeat and it’s another opportunity to progress.”

Supporters have been impressed with the early signs of how Luton are going to try and play under their new manager, but Jones is fully aware it’s victories that are all-important.

He added: “I want to turn that into results as well, I don’t just want to be a certain type of manager, I want us to win football matches and we have to do that.

“Ironically were more fluent on Saturday than in the other games, yet we didn’t pick up any points, whereas in the other games we did.

“So we have to find that balance and that’s the things we’re working on.”
