At the wonderfully named Montgomery Waters Meadow, yesterday, the Hatters reaffirmed their status as genuine automatic promotion contenders with an emphatic 3-0 win.
The victory extends their unbeaten run, in League One, to a majestic 18 games, just one short of the club record, a tremendous achievement.
The win also sees the Hatters further extend their lead at the top of the table. Courtesy of Portsmouth dropping home points at the hands of Doncaster Rovers, Luton are now six points clear of their nearest rivals who are now Barnsley.
In fact, the Hatters once, games in hand are taken in consideration, can only now be caught by Sunderland, who occupy fourth-place, but the Black Cats would have to win all their three games in hand.
Against Shrewsbury, it was James Collins who, once again, led the way with our in-form striker scoring another brace to take his tally, for the season, to eighteen, with the latest brace being particularly sweet as they came against one of his former clubs.
The other goal, sandwiched between the brace from Collins, came from Matty Pearson, who saw his cross drift into the net.
These really are fine times for the Hatters and those dark days in non-league football seem but a distant memory.
Next up for Luton is a home fixture, next Saturday, against Wycombe, let’s go and equal that club record lads.
