Luton’s current record-equalling run, of 19 games, has been a major factor in seeing the Hatters not only reach the summit of the League One table but also opening up a six-point gap.
But, in reaching those lofty heights, a plethora of facts and figures have emerged that show just how well the Hatters are doing this season.
Those 19 games unbeaten have established Luton Town as not only the form team in League One but in the whole of England.
Since taking over from Nathan Jones, who witnessed another Stoke City defeat yesterday, Mick Harford has guided Luton to five successive wins and has seen his charges take 16 points from the 18 available in the league, that is the best start by any manager in the entire history of Luton Town Football Club, and all whilst being the caretaker manager.
A win, next week, (or a draw) would see the Hatters beat their 50-year-old club record of 19 unbeaten games in the league.
But, Harford, on the verge of making history, is firmly of the belief that any praise should be directed towards the players and not him, with Harford being quoted by the BBC, as remarking:
“It’s all down to the players, they perform week in, week out.
“We give them some details about how we want them to do and they go out and perform to a very high level.
“The players get all my accolades because they’re the ones who go and do the business.”
