It wasn’t the result Luton fans wanted going into the final five games of the season, but the mentality displayed should be enough to convince supporters that this is their year.
Jason Cummings’ equalising goal for 10-man Luton with four minutes to go ensured that the Hatters’ club-record unbeaten run extended to now 28 games, and the performance was a promising one.
Luton should have got more than just a point from the game due to their attacking and possession dominance, but a point was enough to extend their lead at the top of the League One table to eight points with Barnsley losing away to Burton.
A win would have put Luton 10 points ahead of second place and put them two wins away from the League One title, and the squad’s mentality on the weekend of not giving up will take the Hatters’ to promotion.
Heading into the closing stages of the game, it really looked like Mick Harford’s side were going to have their unbeaten run come to an end and have their promotion conformation postponed for another week, but Luton showed heart and desire to play until the final minute, and in doing so kept a historic record intact and salvaged a point against a defensively stubborn Blackpool side.
Two games on the road will be the last thing Luton want after playing an exhausting game against Blackpool, but if the side can keep up the same level of determination as they did on the weekend for their games against Charlton and Accrington Stanley, Harford and co could be celebrating promotion to the Championship sooner rather than later.
Luton fans, how soon can the club claim promotion to the Championship? Let us know!
