Luton look ahead
Blue Square Premiership,
The Hatters' season now rests on next Sunday's play-off final against York City.
After starting the 2011-12 campaign full of hope and optimism, Luton Town supporters saw their team finish in fifth place, 18pts behind Fleetwood Town. Never ones to do it the easy way, Paul Buckle's boys gave their supporters a nervous last few minutes at Wrexham in the play-off semi-final, leading 3-0 on aggregate at one stage before scraping home 3-2. So, it's off to Wembley next weekend to face a York City outfit that finished a place above them in fourth, and who this weekend will be battling it out on the same pitch as they take on Newport County in the FA Trophy final. It's difficult to know how that will affect the Minstermen, especially if they should get beat, and of course the Hatters have the luxury of being able to rest as they prepare for yet another attempt at re-entering the league that they fell out of in 2009 after 89 years in attendance. It's been a case of so near yet so far up to now, with York City knocking them out in the semi-finals two years ago, while last year they made it to the final only for AFC Wimbledon to see them off on penalties.
