Up at the Sixfields Stadium this afternoon, it felt as if I`d turned up at the wrong gig.

Back in August I had high hopes that Luton Town would be celebrating promotion and that we`d be lifting the trophy in celebration.

But here I was today, stood applauding Northampton Town for achieving just what I`d hoped and prayed for, it was their party not mine and I felt like a gooseberry!

Perhaps next year it will be us, perhaps come the summer we`ll be rebuilding a Hatters side that can march through this division and not finish in mid-table.

Against Northampton, the Hatters got off to a poor start when with just four minutes gone Zander Diamond escaped his marker to head home a corner from Danny Rose.

Trailing 1-0 Luton had a chance to get back on level terms when Joe Pigott should have netted a cross from Pelly Ruddock.

The points were sealed by Northampton though when, after thirty-six minutes, our hosts doubled their lead when John Marquis finished off an assist from John-Joe O`Toole.

It could have gotten worse for the Hatters when Sam Hoskins hit the post but my abiding memory was of Northampton lifting the trophy and wondering where it all went wrong for Luton between August and now, even more so when the bookmakers, who are not often wrong, had us down as amongst the favourites for promotion.
