Steve: "Best Away Performance So Far"

8 October 2016

Alex boss gives us his reaction from Kenilworth Road

On substitute Lowery, the gaffer said: "Tom was excellent. He wasn't fazed, played with no fear and knew what he was doing. He came on, got on the ball and was reliable. That is what I want my players to be. It was a big game for him, it was his league debut away at Luton and we were 1-0 down but he came on and did his job and his passing was good. I was really pleased with him."

"Saying that I thought it was our best away performance of the season. Overall for an all round game it was excellent against a tough opponent. You have to work hard to get something here and we did that. They are a good side and the players deserved to get something from it."

"We pressed and looked for the winning goal and I want my teams to do that. I want us to drive on and go and win the game 2-1. I think we tired in the last 10 minutes but we had a tough game against Wolves on Tuesday and I played 7 of them again today.

"We said at half-time that we were still very much in the game and that we would get chances again. We were excellent again for the next half an hour and we deservedly got the goal. It was an 18 and 19 year-old combining for a 38-year-old and the goal was very good. Tommy Lowery deserved his opportunity after the way he played when coming on in the week and he produced a great cross-field pass to George, who did some work on the ball and produced an excellent cross for Ryan to head home. It was a well worked goal.

"We set up to let their centre-halves have it and tried to get them to hit it longer and try to limit their space with the diamond.

Steve told the club's official web-site: "I thought we were excellent today. I thought we passed the ball really well and we were good in and out possession. The one time we switched off, they scored their goal. We didn't track the runner and it was disappointing because I thought we had been the better side in the first half.

. Steve Davis was delighted with his team's performance that saw us pick up a deserved point at rivals Luton Town this afternoon. The Alex had to again come from behind to get something from the game after Danny Hylton tapped the home side the lead towards the end of the first half. 38-year-old Ryan Lowe headed home a George Cooper cross to draw us level on 64 minutes and we could well have gone on to have claimed all three points after a really disciplined and solid performance
