Luton Town – Well That Did Not Go As Planned

Everything does not seem to be going the Hatters way in recent weeks as the season approaches its climax.

What with an injury list getting longer by the day and Rob Edwards down to only around a dozen fit players remaining in his squad and having to rely on youngsters to field an eighteen, I was kind of hoping that the results in Tuesday nights Premier League games might go our way, but they did not.

On paper it looked very much as if a vibrant Fulham side could travel to take on Nottingham Forest and get a result, sadly it just didn’t happen with Fulham finding theselves 3-0 down before the half hour mark, eventually losing 3-1, thereby seeing Nottingham Forest add a further three points to their total and pulling away from us in the nether regions of the Premier League table.

Elsewhere Everton travelled to Tyneside to take on Newcastle United, yet again, on paper, it looked like a home win and once again we were let down. Newcastle, struggling with injuries like us, led 1-0 for most of the game but only took a point with Everton grabbing an equaliser from the penalty spot. With the spoils shared, Everton, just like Nottingham Forest, opened up the gap between them and us, even though Sean Dyche’s outfit stretched their run of games without a win to 13 games.

Lastly Burnley, who have started to hit a run of form albeit late on in the season, earned a point in a home fixture with Wolverhampton Wanderers, although I still believe Burnley have left themselves far too much to do, in the remaining games this season.

With the Hatters up against it as they travel to take on Arsenal, the next game, against AFC Bournemouth at Kenilworth Road, is looking more and more like a must win game.
