Huddersfield vs Luton Town: Managers’ reaction

Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “Our target was to get to Wembley to play in the final and we’ve achieved that. As a club we try always to learn from everything we are doing and use that experience to improve, and that’s what we’ve done this year.

“The players are the key. I’ve had a very good group of players to work with, with amazing character. We are determined to do something special this year, and with this group of players everything was easy.

Luton’s Nathan Jones: “First and foremost let’s congratulate Huddersfield because they’ve been excellent all season and they’re going to Wembley. Secondly, I couldn’t be more proud of my team. We were the best side tonight and we missed chances first half. There was a bit of sloppiness inthe second half, then they scored from a set-play.

“I’m so, so proud of the team and how they’ve gone about their work. We’ve had to contend with absolutely everything. We’ve got eight missing tonight, and the margins have been so tight. But it’s not sour grapes, I’m just so proud of my team and I thought we were brilliant tonight. We’ll come back stronger for this. We start work again tomorrow to be even better next year.”
