Luton Town moved out of the relegation zone on Tuesday night as they delivered the type of performance their fans have been waiting all season for, with a 4-0 trouncing of Brighton.

Two goals in the first three minutes set the tone for what was a comprehensive win.

Speaking after the game Luton manager Rob Edwards told BBC’s Match of the Day:  “All of it was pretty good from start to finish.

“We’ve done that to quite a few teams. It’s how we play. With a result and performance like this, a few people might take notice of it a little bit more.

“I feel, we feel, the best way for us to go in this league is to attack.

“We’re going to keep driving the players. There were bits where we were sloppy. We have to keep our foot down. We can’t afford to stop because we’re not good enough to do that,” he said.

Edwards had special praise for Elijah Adebayo who bagged a hat-trick: “I’m delighted for Elijah. He’s a very difficult player to play against. We’re very thankful that we’ve got him, but there were several good performances out there tonight.”

In turn Adebayo expressed his delight at the way the evening had unfolded: “It’s a fantastic night. This group is special. I’m delighted with how everyone performed tonight.

“I could go through the whole team, everyone that’s been a part of this journey – including Locks, who was here tonight. The whole 11 was fantastic, and the subs that came on.

“The gaffer said we need to start sharply and get the first goal. From then it’s always going to be difficult to carry on, but credit to the lads for doing that. It was just about getting more goals and making it a comfortable night.

“Through my whole career, you dream of nights like this when playing non-league. For many of us who have been on such a journey, we thrive and wish for nights like this. I couldn’t be happier for the group of lads that are in there, who have been on an incredible journey.”
