County boss Gary Ablett admits he was pleased to see his young Hatters side get the ‘monkey off their back’ by claiming their first home win of the season over Leyton Orient.

The ex-Liverpool reserve team boss also thinks that his side can climb further up the League One ladder this season, provided County can ‘get the ball down and play’.

Ablett said: ‘That was a very important win for us in terms of what happened last week, when I thought we dropped two points.’

‘Our ball retention was good, and we were solid defensively all day. The quality of our back four shouldn’t be under-estimated.’

‘There was a bit of panic stations at the end when they scored, but I’m pleased we held on.’

He goes on further to state his belief that, despite the inexperience of his squad, they will carry on learning and begin ‘going places.’

‘If we keep improving like we are doing, we’ll go places.’

‘If we get the ball down, these lads can play. This team is learning, so I’m hoping we can go on to bigger things.’

Well done Mr Ablett, instilling a bit of positivity can’t be a bad thing.

Come on County.

  • Yes, well done GA. My goodness, would love to see what he could do with even moderate backing. Through all the gloom and depression at the moment at least GA is one shining star.
