The Hatters are in the fifth-round draw for the first time since 2013, when they were still a non-league side.

The tie, against Cambridge United was always going to be a challenge, even more so with the gusty wind making conditions testing.

But, after weathering an early spell of pressure, Luton never looked back after Reece Burke opened the scoring and then Carlos Mendes Gomes doubled the lead before half time.

The victory was secured when, late in the second half, Admiral Muskwe scored.

It wasnโ€™t the most entertaining of games, but Luton got the result and march on, still dreaming of a trip to Wembley, in May.

Glancing through the social media comments, the manner in which we went about the game was recognised:

Here at Vital Luton Town, we certainly do, although I will admit when I saw the starting XI, memories of Stevenage (a), in the Carabao Cup, came flooding back.

Therefore, with Nathan Jones making NINE changes from the XI selected in midweek, it was no surprise the performance, at times, was a little disjointed:

The firth round, or to put it slightly different, the last 16, who do you fancy in the next round, Stoke City or Peterborough United at Kenilworth Road would suit me fine.

How about you?

    Morning mh, yes a professional job done looking at some of the performances steer in goal always shouting at the defense not just at free kicks sign of a good keeper. Kioso showed maturity in stopping lockyer getting into more trouble and solid. Wish I knew what Jones problem is with him just for wanting to play is he another Morrell? Thorpe good with a dead ball but saw little of the ball. Muskwie don’t know why we signed him he hasn’t impressed me so far it was an own goal. Gomes as you an I said before he signed not sure about him still took goal well but saw little of his speed or skill.
