Goals from Jack Marriott and Cameron McGeehan inflicted Blackpool's second defeat on home turf this season.

The Seasiders had scored 12 in their last three home games before Luton came to town, but the Hatters put in an impressive performance to steal all three points.

"They had one or two opportunities from distance on the counter attack, but apart from that we negated a side that hasn’t lost in nine at home who score in threes and fours past people and taking teams apart.

"Without being too disrespectful I thought we did that to them today."

The result put Town five points between themselves and Blackpool, who had been in a good run of form going into yesterday's fixture.

Jones added: "That’s as good an away performance I have seen from anyone at this level.

"I thought we were majestic, I really do. I can’t think of many adjectives to describe our performance but we were clinical."
