The Hatters are so close to promotion they can almost touch it.

Although winning the title is a little too much to hope for, even though Accrington Stanley could only draw at home this weekend, promotion itself will be a sweet reward for the Hatters faithful.

Against Crewe, Luton didn’t get off to the best of starts, our visitors had the best of the opening period of play and it was no surprise when they took the lead, in the thirty-fifth minute.

The goal came after an error from Alan Sheehan saw Jordan Bowery race away and put the ball past James Shea to score.

Prior to the goal, both sides did have chances to score, but Jack Stacey saw his header saved by Ben Garrett, in the Crewe goal, whilst Danny Hylton saw his shot go wide.

The Hatters weren’t behind for long though and levelled the match in the thirty-ninth minute when Hylton was in the right place to turn and score his twenty-second goal of the season.

On the stroke of half-time, the Hatters edged ahead in the game for the first time when Elliot Lee produced a magnificent curling shot, from the edge of the area, to beat Garrett all ends up.

Kenilworth Road was now a cauldron of noise and six minutes into the second-half, with the Kenilworth Road crowd urging Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu to shoot, the midfielder obliged by firing home from all of thirty-yards out.

Luton did have further opportunities to score with James Collins seeing a shot deflected wide and Harry Cornick dragging a shot wide when it might have been easier to hit the target.

The promotion party is now very close, bring it on!
