Up in Lancashire, just inshore from the Golden Mile, at Blackpool, the Hatters earned a hard-fought draw against a Blackpool side who entered the game unbeaten in six games.

The 0-0 draw saw the Hatters make it 12 points from 9 games but slip down to 12th place in the League One table.

The game was a game where very few chances were created, the Hatters best chance, in the first half, fell to Andrew Shinnie but his low shot was saved by the Blackpool goalkeeper, Mark Howard.

Our hosts best chance, of the half, fell to Liam Feeney but, James Shea, in the Hatters goal was up to the challenge and tipped the effort over the bar.

The second half saw Luton start well with Jorge Grant forcing Howard into making a save. But, slowly, Blackpool started to dominate the game and Jordan Thompson almost netted with a header that drifted just wide.

With the final whistle almost upon us the Hatters had a glorious chance to snatch all three points and send the travelling support home happy, but Elliot Lee was deprived of scoring a memorable winner when Howard made a majestic save from his long-range effort.

On reflection, perhaps a point was a good reward for a Hatters side that has a poor away record this season, but, if we can keep picking up points at home, as well as the odd point away from home, our season will flourish.
