The Hatters Are Under Pressure

The Hatters Are Under Pressure

Most Hatters supporters, if asked, would prefer to give the play-offs a swerve and grasp an automatic promotion place.

There`s nothing like a day out at Wembley, even more so if you can win and achieve promotion, but the play-offs in recent times have given Luton Town more heartache than joy.

But, according to the record books, the Hatters have it all to do if they want to grab one of the three automatic promotion places.

The last two seasons have seen 85 points as being sufficient to gain an automatic promotion place.

Luton currently have 58 points with 10 games left, meaning that the Hatters, if the past two seasons are replicated, can only afford to drop 3 more points.

With Exeter City set to visit Kenilworth Road this Saturday, in a vital promotion clash, Nathan Jones has, at his pre-match press conference, re-iterated the need to go on an unbeaten run to achieve their promotion goal, remarking to the local media,

'Everyone is playing each other and putting runs together. It was in our hands a week ago, we could have gone into third, but two adverse results and Portsmouth picking up two results has changed it.

'Anything can change, what we have to do is make sure we stay right in touch, especially with the Easter period coming up. I keep telling the players we're the only side that's not had a run yet, putting four or five wins together.

'Now would be a good time to go on one, because if you do that you can catapult your way right up the table. Other teams around us have been on runs of seven and eight and will have to repeat that, we just need to pick up as many points as we can,

'It's a big ask, but we're right in it, and we've got a game in hand, which takes it close. We have been in good form, but we now have to have a run, we're in good shape in terms of physicality, we just have to turn that into results.'


Starting with a win against Exeter City, at Kenilworth Road this Saturday, I`d suggest.
