Last night a crowd of just three short of seven thousand watched Luton Town get back to winning ways.

After a run of three successive defeats, with the role of dishonour reading Barnet (a), Stevenage (h) and Accrington Stanley (h), the Hatters managed to beat a Dagenham and Redbridge side that seem destined to drop back into non-league football courtesy of the relegation system.

Before the game started and as we expected, the Dagenham and Redbridge manager John Still was given a standing ovation by the Hatters supporters for his achievement of leading the Hatters back into League Two after their prolonged exile in non-league football before being axed back in December.

The only goal of the game came in the 37th minute when Pelly Ruddock, making a rare start; saw his shot go in off the underside of the crossbar, for the midfielder`s second goal of the season.

Dagenham and Redbridge make a decent attempt to get something from the match and Luton had to survive a couple of scares when a shot from Jamie Cureton had to be kicked off the line and also when an effort from Oliver Hawkins smashed against the crossbar.

The defeat leaves Jon Still`s side almost certain to plunge through the relegation trap-door with Still remarking after the game,

“We`ve competed and done really well, showing plenty of fight. Performances like that are encouraging.”

As for Nathan Jones, he commented to the local media,

“It`s important we stopped the run we were on.”

It was and with the gap between ourselves and tat last promotion play-off place cut to just 6 points, could we??????????????????., I`m only asking!
