Luton 2 Braintree 3
Well that wasn`t on the cards was it?
Braintree Town arrived at Kenilworth Road not having won for seven games and Luton were supposed to extend a winning run of three games to four.
In fact the little run of fixtures we`re currently in were supposed to cement our position as leading candidates for promotion.
Well we all know what can happen to best laid plans don`t we!
Off course, Luton were hampered by the red card our top scorer, Stuart Fleetwood, received for picking up two yellow cards in the first half, but that shouldn`t be used as an excuse, we should be beating teams like Braintree.
So what about the goals?
Well Braintree raced into a two goal lead courtesy of a curling shot from Dan Holman before Sean Marks raced onto a long ball, from Sam Habergham, to beat Tyler.
In between those strikes we did, of course, lose Fleetwood.
But Luton did battle back into the match with a header from on-loan Simon Ainge reducing the arrears before Dan Walker leveled with a low shot.
But midway through the half Matt Paine rose to meet a corner from Daniel Sparkes and those valuable three points had slipped away leaving the majority of the 5,523 inside Kenilworth Road to leave the ground bitterly disappointed.
