The FA Trophy has deprived Luton of the ideal opportunity to verify their promotion intentions.

This weekend, instead of taking on Wrexham on in an FA Trophy we should have been visiting the Abbey Stadium to take on top of the table Cambridge United.

With Luton closing the gap, after thrashing Alfreton 5-0 last Saturday and with Cambridge then extending the gap with a win last night, Luton had a great chance to peg back the leaders.

The fixture would also have given us a change to exchange a few verbal blows with one of our former managers, Richard Money.

Money, who has led Cambridge to the summit of the Conference Premier, has never seemed to accept his departure from the club he also played for as a player and has, rather bitchily, remarked about us,

“The team we are talking about, who won yesterday, has an average gate of 6,500 and pay their players League One salaries.”

“We are in equally as good form. They`ve gone 14 games unbeaten. Well done, but you are just doing your jobs.”


Apparently, the game has been rescheduled for early in the New Year and I for one can`t wait to see those words rammed back down his throat with a resounding Hatters win.
