Luton’s decent start to life in League Two continues after showing tremendous resilience to fight back from two goals down to earn a point at Accrington on Saturday.
Stanley raced to a two-goal lead after just sixteen minutes but goals from Luke Rooney and Jake Howells made it all-square before the break.
Despite a point called Hatters manager John Still insists the players are capable of further as he said: “We battled back well, but it’s not good enough. I think the players are aware it wasn’t good enough.”
BetVictor eased the Hatters to 1⁄4 (from 1/8) to achieve a top half finish with a bottom half finish backed into 11/4 from 9/2 from the start of the season.
Luton remain fancied to sneak into the play-offs and are 5/6 to achieve a top seven finish and guarantee play-off football at the very least.
For Town fans dreaming of playing the likes of Sheffield United, Preston, Peterborough et al in League One next year, Town remain 12/1 for the title and 7/4 for promotion.
Shrewsbury is Luton’s next port of call to face a Shrews side in excellent form and still unbeaten after six games in all competitions this season.
Micky Mellon’s side turned over Premier League opposition when travelling to, and beating, Leicester City in the Capital One Cup midweek and as such enter the game as 13/10 favourites with BetVictor, Luton 23/10 and the draw 12/5.
Admittedly, it was a second-string Foxes outfit and Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Northampton gives Hatters fans hope of nicking a share of the spoils at the very least.
The ‘both teams to score’ bet continues to grow in popularity and should go in once more; even money to do so and 17/20 to miss.
Still’s side can hopefully nick all three points however and are 6/1 to ‘win and both teams to score’ with the 2-1 correct further value at 12/1, sending Hatters fans happily back down the M1.
