Luton Town have been made joint favourites to win League Two this year by sponsors Sky Bet.

The Hatters are 15/2 along with Portsmouth, while Bury are 8/1, Shrewsbury 9/1, Burton 10/1 and Stevenage 14/1.

Meanwhile, Ross Lafayette is surprisingly rated the most likely to finish top scorer at Kenilworth Road.

The summer signing from Welling is 22/1, ahead of Paul Benson 25/1, Alex Wall 33/1, Charlie Walker 33/1, Ricky Miller 40/1 and Mark Cullen 40/1.

On Town’s favourites tag, first team coach Hakan Hayrettin said: “I don’t know about that, we don’t really look at that as coaches and managers.

“We’ll just get our heads down, focus one game at a time, do the best that we possibly can for Luton Town.

“We can’t be any more ready than we are.”
