The Hatters are on an incredible unbeaten run at the moment and, yesterday, away to Sheffield Wednesday in an intriguing FA Cup 3rd round tie, Luton Town held their own against the Championship side.

With the Hatters looking to get promoted to the Championship, come to the end of the season, it was good to see that Nathan Jones’ side were more than a match for their opponents.

Following the 0-0 draw, which will see the replay played at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday 15 January, Nathan Jones spoke to the BBC with the boss enthusing about how his side had performed, remarking:

“I think it was deserved and I thought it was an even game between an established Championship side and us, who want to get to the next level.

“We came here with a game plan and tried to be as positive as we could. We didn’t come here and park the bus, and I think it could have gone either way.

“We perhaps just lacked a little bit of cutting edge in the final third, but I’m very proud of how we played because we showed that we can compete at this level.

“They had good height with all three strikers that they had but I thought we defended well. It’s not ideal having the extra game, but the chance to play at a full house back at our place is a good one.”

The replay has all the ingredients to be one of those memorable cup nights down at Kenilworth Road, let’s hope we can progress to the 4th round.
