With just seven games left to go, Kenilworth Road will surely be rocking as Luton Town are seemingly set to return to the Championship after a 12-year absence as they continue to tear apart the competition in League One. The Hatters extended their unbeaten run to 26 matches after dominating Doncaster Rovers, with their last defeat coming way back in October.
A number of the club’s stars have been performing exceptionally well this season, with James Justin, Kazenga LuaLua, James Collins and James Shea having been outstanding for Mick Harford’s side, however, one man has started to get firing after a rather testing campaign.
Danny Hylton has had a difficult season in League One after being extremely impressive in England’s fourth tier over the past couple of years. The 30-year-old managed to net more than 20 goals in each campaign since joining from Oxford United.
However, goals appear to have been a problem for him as it would seem that the striker has had trouble adapting to life in the division. Having started in fine fashion, he netted twice in his first three matches before adding a hat-trick to his account towards the end of October.
But, since then, finding the back of the target has been somewhat of a struggle and he went 13 games before recording his next mark, with a goal against Rochdale AFC. Injuries have not exactly been kind to the forward, as he missed the whole of September, whilst he has also missed a number of games due to the two red cards he has picked up so far.
Hylton has since managed to find the back of the net against Gillingham and Doncaster Rovers and seems to have finally found his mojo once again.
And, it could not have come at a better time for Luton and their promotion hopes. The Hatters still have a number of challenging games left to play, and whilst Collins has been in red-hot form, Hylton’s return to sharpness will be a welcome boost.
Whilst having a player that has a natural touch to find the back of the net on a regular basis is never a bad thing, having one available with a number of opponents to play that are fighting either against the drop or vying for a place in the play-offs, matches will become even more challenging than they were already were.
Luton fans, is Hylton’s apparent return to form a welcomed boost? How good is it to see him back in amongst the goals? Join in with the discussion below by sharing your thoughts with us.
