Every point is precious as the Hatters close in on promotion.
After building up a 27-game unbeaten run ahead of the game, against Blackpool, this afternoon, it looked as if that run would end.
Although Luton had taken an early lead through Collins, Blackpool had struck back to not only equalise but also take the lead.
Matters got a little more complicated for Luton when Collins, having already been booked, committed another transgression that saw a red-card brandished.
But this Luton side are made of stern stuff and Cummings gave the capacity crowd inside Kenilworth Road cause to cheer with an equaliser.
However, although the Hatters pressed hard that winner we all hoped for wasn’t to come and the points were shared.
But there are so many more positives to take from the game.
The Hatters kept that long unbeaten run, in the league, intact, Barnsley lost at Burton Albion and automatic promotion is still in their own hands.
On the negative side though, Sunderland won again and are closing the gap on the Hatters, with two games in hand that gap could be narrowed to just a couple of points if Sunderland win.
Also, the red card means Collins will serve a suspension, something we could well do without at such a crucial stage of the season.
But, as they say, the good times keep on rolling.
