Hatters on the Brink…

Well, What a season it has been for Luton Town Football Club. Everything could now come down to the last game of the season unless Pompey loses this evening against Peterborough which Kickoffs at 7-45PM. If Portsmouth loses the game then Luton’s place in the Championship is secured.

*Shock Defeat leave’s Hatters on the brink*

Following a shock defeat at the weekend where Luton Town could have secured promotion, Manager Mick Harford was questioned if the pressure of the situation had got to his players, Harford said –

“It could have been, but they’re calm, they’ve trained well, they’ve been their normal selves and I couldn’t detect anything in there.

“When we got the lead, it was a fortunate lead in my opinion as I felt they (Burton) created numerous opportunities in the first half.

“They got themselves in some great positions and there was some excellent defending from us, but overall I thought we weren’t really at the races.”

Harford added: “We’ve got no divine right to be in any position.

“We have to work hard, we have to treat every game as a cup final, we have to roll our sleeves up, we have to get about teams and today (Saturday) we didn’t.

“At the start of the season, we’d have taken this position, with one game to go.

“It’s been a long, long job and we’re coming to the end.

“It’s getting slightly tricky but I have every confidence in the staff and the players and the football club to get over the line.”
