Cameron McGeehan scores the winner for Hatters against Newport

Town boss Nathan Jones made an animated request for the Luton supporters to play their part in creating an atmosphere for the players to perform in during home games after the last-gasp 2-1 win against Newport County on Tuesday night.

McGeehan admitted that a feel good factor at Kenilworth Road would make it easier for the players to continue the form that has seen as the early frontrunners in League Two this term, although can understand the frustrations amongst the home faithful too.

He said: “It’s edgy out there when we’re not winning. It’s understandable.

“I think we need to get a few wins behind our backs and they’ll sort of understand that we will win in the end or we’ll get there in the end.

“When it was 1-1 I think there were a few moans from the crowd but the vast majority get right behind you, which is good.

“When the odd person shouts out, you hear them and it doesn’t have the best impact, but they pay their money and they can do what they want really.

“Hopefully that relationship will improve and they’ll understand that we’ll probably win the game in the end.

“It’s just a matter of time and breaking these teams down. It’s respect to us because teams come and sit off and make it ugly.”

Meanwhile, team-mates Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu knows the players have to do their bit too in getting fans onside earlier in games as he added: “It’s difficult, sometimes when you’re playing you don’t really hear the fans, when they’re going, you can really recognise it.

“Hopefully the fans can get on our side earlier, maybe we can make it easier for them, putting a few of our chances away because we created a lot of chances in the first half.

“But obviously making the fans cheer and shout makes it easier for us to play with a little bit more fluency and tempo as well.”
