Walking down Hazelbury Crescent before crossing Dunstable Road and heading off to the public house up High Town Road, was a solemn experience.
For the second time in a week, I`d witnessed Luton lose. After an unbeaten start to the season our world has suddenly started collapsing around our ears.
Sadly, not even a few pints of Abbot Ale could lift my mood as I bypassed the Chinese takeaway and headed for bed, too cheese doff to even contemplate writing any sort of match review.
Today, I don`t feel much better. I`ve got this dreadful feeling that all that early season optimism is fast evaporating in the Indian summer that`s hit these shores.
Last night, with over six thousand packed into the old ground, Luton had the better of the first half, but, once again, couldn`t convert chances to goals. From what I can recall, the best chances fell to Danny Crowe and Stuart Fleetwood with the formers header being saved by the Cambridge keeper and the latter shot over when well placed.
If Gary Brabin, for the second match on the trot was going to use the half time break to inspire his men, what was said didn`t exactly work. Our visitors came out by far the better side and could have scored before they finally did.
Berry twice went close before, on the hour mark, Rory McAuley headed home a precision cross from Josh Coulson to head home the winner.
For all their huffing and puffing Luton couldn`t get back on level terms and that unbeaten run that took us to the top of the table now seems a long way off!
Never mind, there`s always Barrow on Saturday!
