With the clock ticking away and approaching the 85th minute I’m probably not alone in thinking the Hatters were going to start the resumption of their season with a loss.
But, as football has shown us time and time again, never give up hope until the final whistle.
The late equaliser, against Preston North End, scored by Callum McManaman, could be just the thing that gives the tea the confidence boost it needs.
The point gained, against Preston North End, was certainly appreciated by those who frequent the various social media sites with numerous acknowledging that Preston, who are looking to finish in a play-of place, are a decent side.
Below are a few of the multitude of postings illustrating the point:

But now with two difficult away games next up, with the Hatters visiting Swansea City and Leeds United, the behind closed doors scenario has shown home support is somewhat negated, prompting the following post:
For me, today highlighted what a leveller an empty stadium is. Everything to play for in our next two away at large empty stadiums 🧡🎩

Yes, there is everything to play and if we can secure at least one win it’ll be a job well done but, here at Vital Luton Town, we’re not under-estimating the magnitude of the task.
But, in finishing this glimpse through the social media posts relating to the Preston North End game, I couldn’t resist the following:
Nathan Jones makes me feel warm again. We’re staying up I know it
