Luton Town boss Rob Edwards says he is “pleased” his side edged past League One side Bolton Wanderers in their FA Cup third-round replay, despite being “sloppy in too many moments”.
Speaking in the post-match news conference, Edwards said: “Tonight was about winning. We were not at our best.
“We had to manage a few tonight – but we try to win every match we go into. We found a way to win tonight.
“We just dropped a bit, and you can’t do that. Bolton are a big club, but when we are favourites, we took our foot off the gas and Bolton could have punished us. But lots of good play by us, just a little sloppy in final third.”
Luton will not play now until their fourth-round tie on 27 January and Edwards is relishing the chance to spend time with his squad.
“We’re going away for some warm weather – getting training in and time together,” he added.
“It has been a tough season so far.”
