Gateshead (a) - Is a Winnable Tie But…………….
Sat waiting for the draw for the 2nd round of the FA Cup, on Monday evening, I have to admit that I was hoping for an easy draw, at Kenilworth Road.
Instead, fate has conspired to give the Hatters a long away trek, and a potential banana-skin tie with a non-league side.
Luton, in their attempt to reach the third round and what could be a lucrative tie against a top Premier League, now have to summon all their resources to ensure they don`t become the Goliath slain by a David in round two.
However, in saying that, if the Hatters play to their potential and Nathan Jones picks a strong side, we`ve of the opinion that Luton will be able to sweep aside our non-league opponents and get that, hopefully, lucrative third round tie against the likes of a Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur or Chelsea.
