Gary: It's a good result for us – video reaction and gallery

11 November 2017

Boss Gary Johnson hailed his players after they battled back to salvage a point in dramatic fashion at the LCI Rail Stadium.

Jamie Grimes had cancelled out Dan Potts' early goal to level the match at the break, but substitute Elliot Lee looked to have bagged the points with a goal five minutes from time.

Then goalkeeper Scott Flinders was pressed into attack in added on time, assisting Will Boyle's late header to take a share of the spoils.

"I don't really want to clear up who scored the late goal!" said the manager after there was some debate around who got the final touch.

"I'm just happy that we got onto the first header. Then Scotty (Flinders) got on the second – which is unbelievable for a goalkeeper – before (Will) Boyle got on the end of it to score.

"The two of them are having some banter in there about who scored and I'm enjoying that. I did say to Will Boyle that he wouldn't score a header in a month of Sundays - so it obviously worked!

"I'm just pleased we got it back, that's the main thing.

"These players don't give up. Dan O'Shaughnessy's throw-in isn't a bad weapon to have to put other teams under pressure. We got the first goal from that.

"The boys worked hard today, which you have to against Luton Town with the ability they have. Most of the time we dealt with it well, and had a few counter attacks of our own.

"It's a good result for us after being 2-1 down with five minutes to play. It's a fair result. They didn't have loads of chances and I don't remember Flinders making too many saves.

"That result has got us one point nearer to the play-offs, and over nine games Luton have only got three more points than us.

"I'm encouraged by the way we matched them. We had to work very hard and I'm pleased for the boys because we have another hard game next Saturday (against Notts County). The point is massive for us at this moment in time."
