'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Luton Town 1 Bury 1

Okay, hands up, after two successive home defeats, how many of you had left Kenilworth Road last night before Luton got that dramatic late equalizer?

In what was Luton Town`s first night-time Football League fixture for five years, 7,890 ventured into Kenilworth Road to see Luton Town entertain one of the favourites for promotion Bury.

John Still made the one-change, after the loss to AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, by bringing in Luke Rooney for Jake Howells. Rooney, of course, had been suspended for the aforementioned fixture.

In a competitive first half, it was Bury that looked the more likely to score. Luton were pushed back by 'The Shaker`s and had trouble getting out of their own half. However, the Hatters defence coped with and Mark Tyler, in the Hatters goal, was rarely tested.

Unfortunately, any hopes Luton had of pushing Bury onto the back-foot early in the second half were misplaced with Bury going ahead in the 62nd minute courtesy of a close range striker from Rose.

John Still tried to kick-start Luton into life by bringing on Ruddock, just before Bury scored, and Howells and Lafayette with fifteen minutes to go.

But it looked as if it was going to be one of those nights. The crowd were getting disappointed and starting to drift away when, in the 90th minute, a 20 yard shot from Ruddock fizzed past Lainton in the Bury goal and Luton Town had a share of the spoils.

Three games into the season and Luton have won 1, lost 1 and drawn 1, quite a steady start I`d say.

Next up are Accrington Stanley (a), this Saturday!
