"Games are about winning and we fought really well," said Grant.
"We showed guts and determination and kept going even though we went behind.
"Luton kept going at us too and never laid down and it was a proper football match.
"It's about guts and character and spirit and we have that in abundance. I'm really, really pleased.
"The goals we lost were awful and you shouldn't have to score three to win away from home."
Grant also had praise for match- winner Lappin, saying: "I brought him in for his quality and we've seen that in the games he's played. The
set-pieces were fantastic all night."
