The recent 1-1 draw, against Newport County, at Kenilworth Road, added to what has been a truly miserable season when it comes to home games.

Those that visit the quaint old ground on a regular basis this season have only seen the Hatters win 6 times on home soil. That`s a record that has seen the Hatters win fewer home games than relegated York City.

But it seems that the Hatters have made a habit of frustrating fans by conceding late goals that have cost them dearly, with Luton Town doing it on no less than seven occasions.

Away from home, on the road, Luton are, as we`ve discovered, totally different.

When pressed on the reasons why the Hatters have struggled at home, Nathan Jones was a little stumped for an answer, remarking,

‘I’m a bit baffled by the points haul we’ve had here, because we’ve had more possession, more chances, more crosses, more shots than we have away from home. We win games away from home on a regular basis. We’re probably one of the league’s best, I’d imagine.

‘There’s improvement to be made. You can put as many spins on it as you want, in terms of away and home, but it’s difficult to say. I can’t put my finger on it, to be honest.’

Let`s hope it`s not something we replicate next season, even more so if we`re looking to mount a sustained promotion charge.
