I’ve got a confession to make and I’m not sure it will sit well with the readership!
I must confess I’ve never been entirely happy with the play-off campaign.
I’ve always felt it was a bit harsh that a side that finishes third, possibly numerous points ahead of a team that finishes sixth, must go through the lottery of what is, basically, a mini cup tournament.
But, although they say a leopard cannot change its spots, with the Hatters now actively involved in the play-offs, I’m slowly changing my opinion.
Luton, as we all know, finished sixth and will, over two legs, face Huddersfield, who finished in third position after accumulating seven points more than us.
After watching Wycombe Wanderers over-coming the odds and beating that lot from up the road, MK Dons, after a tight two-legged tie, the romance of the situation is starting to draw me in.
With the Hatters playing Huddersfield, on Friday evening and then again on Monday evening, could we see another team, us, that finished sixth, just like Wycombe, beat a side that finished third, just like MK Dons?
Of course, we could, hang on tight, we’re on a real roller coaster ride!
