How the Hatters respond to their record 27 league game unbeaten ending on Monday night is vital to their Skrill Premier title charge according to Town’s players and management, writes Mark Wood and Mike Simmonds.

Luton’s incredible sequence was ended by an impressive Woking side who triumphed 1-0 at Kenilworth Road as Town were beaten for the first time since September 13.

Recalled midfielder Matt Robinson said: “I think it’s important how we bounce back, that’s how you’ll learn the true character of a winning team.

“If we slack off it and the same thing happens again there would be questions, but I don’t think that’s in our make up to do that.”

Midfielder Andy Parry was of the same view too as he said: “Saturday is massive, as hopefully this was a little blip.

“We’ve got to bounce back, we had that before when we got beaten by Wrexham.”

Town have gone from scoring 20 goals in their last four games to only one in three, picking up just two points from a possible nine, but boss John Still wasn’t about to start panicking though.
