Luton Town best we’ve faced: Doncaster chief after narrow victory

By Thomas13 - Own work, Public Domain,

Doncaster boss Grant McCann has described Nathan Jones’ Luton Town as the best side his team have faced so far this season.

Rovers have faced Peterborough and Portsmouth, but it is the recently promoted Hatters that have really caught McCann’s eye. His side ran out 2-1 winners at the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday, but McCann, thought Luton were the best he’s seen.

“They were hard to play against,” he told local media. “We started well and should have scored again but we sat back a little bit and found it difficult. I think Luton are a very good team, probably the best we’ve played, and it’s a group that are used to winning games.”

He was, of course, delighted with his own sides endeavours and was keen to play those up too.

“We showed a different side to us when we had to, we were capable of rolling our sleeves up and grinding the game out. That is four unbeaten in the league – two against the top two and one against a team I think will be in the top six without a shadow of a doubt.”

Doncaster are seventh in the table, just three points adrift of third-placed Barnsley.

Our View

Doncaster have surprised a few people, they were tipped to struggle but have started well in a tough division.

Luton are down in eleventh place, but they’re a strong side who will be in the mix at the end of the season. They’ve faced four of the current top seven already, a horrendous start by any standards.
