“So happy. We knew it would be a big battle here, we made it hard for ourselves the way we conceded the goals. The spirit of the team, how we fought, showed our quality in the right moments and never gave up. We went for it and got our rewards today.
“Credit to them [Luton]. Their delivery was excellent, the finishing was excellent and sometimes you have to credit the opponent. Big compliments to them, it was a tough night.”
“I’m so happy with the team. I have spoken with all the team and they are jumping. I’m a really happy manager today.”
“Incredible evening. Congratulations to Luton, their players, staff, the atmosphere they created made it a special night to play football and they made it very hard for us.
“They are so good at set pieces and they made us really fight for the game and at the end it was a beautiful win.
“Credit to the opponent, they did really well and cause problems to any team. It’s something we have to improve, conceding three goals from home makes life difficult. The team showed spirit, quality, courage to go and go again. We never gave up and tried to the end.
“Big credit to the team, the way they go every three days is remarkable. Luton have been really unlucky with their results, they are well organised and they are a threat.”
