Danny Hylton scored the winner as Luton Town produced one of the narrow football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Colin Kazim-Richards should have put Derby ahead after four minutes but his effort was a disappointing one over the bar. Ravel Morisson missed by a whisker while Curtis Davis volleyed wide from a corner. Hylton took full advantage of the misses in the 67th minute for the only goal of the game.
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “It’s been a great month to be fair as apart from a debacle at Birmingham we’ve taken 15 points from 18. Unless you’re Fulham, or Man City or Liverpool, you don’t get many better months like that, so a wonderful, wonderful month and that’s a credit to the players, a credit to everyone, the staff, everyone behind the scenes. It doesn’t feel any different to being in eighth, to be honest, it doesn’t feel groundbreaking as there’s a long way to go. If it was game 46 and we’d just finished sixth it would feel special, but it’s wonderful to be in the position we are in.”
Derby’s Wayne Rooney: “I’m frustrated, we changed our shape, we gave Luton the respect they deserved, they’re not a team blessed with great individuals, but they’re a good, honest, hard-working team. I felt the changes we made really kept them at arm’s length, they didn’t have the impact they normally have, but we conceded a bad goal from our point of view and didn’t take our chances.”
