The latest batch of leagues games have resulted in Luton reaching the top spot in League 2 with two thirds of the season yet to be played. Last year, we reached the top of the Conference in December and stayed there for the rest of the season. This time around, we’re hoping that we haven’t peaked too soon but are happy to be there none-the-less.
The unbeaten league run is now up to nine, with one draw and seven consecutive wins contributing to the points haul. Most Luton fans would agree that we’re not yet playing as consistently as we know we can, but it’s the ability to grind out results that wins promotion and championships. You can’t play well for 90 minutes and you can’t do it every game. At the moment, we’re resilient and have a few purple spells during games that are enough to win us the points.
