All the Trophy odds as Luton travel to Cambridge
The Hatters ran into a useful Lincoln City side (who subsequently thrashed third place Alfreton Town 4-1 midweek) and, despite the stalemate ending a run of six straight wins, John Still will, no doubt, be delighted to have taken 13 points from a possible 15 over a very busy fortnight.
Cambridge are out 7/4 to win the Conference and 8/11 to get promoted.
The FA Trophy, and a possible Wembley visit takes centre-stage this weekend with Town visiting Cambridge in what is obviously the tie of the round.
The Abbey Stadium has been a fortress thus far this season and has been the foundation of The U’s promotion push, conceding just two goals and winning every one of their 12 Conference games this season.
Luton were eased out to 7/1 (from 4s) after the draw pitted them with Cambridge, themselves eased to 5/1 from 4s with Grimsby inserted as new 3/1 favourites, 4/11 to get past Maidenhead at Blundell Park.
FA Trophy Outright prices from BetVictor: Grimsby Town 3/1; Cambridge United 5/1; Luton 7/1; Aldershot Town 8/1; Lincoln City 8/1; 12/1 Bar.
John Still looks set to rotate his squad and, whilst silverware and a Wembley would trip would be the icing on the cake, promotion back to the FL72 remains the primary objective and the Hatters’ boss confirmed that many of the development squad will be involved at the weekend.
BetVictor make Cambridge 13/10 favourites with home advantage, Luton Town 9/5 and the draw 12/5.
The U’s are much respected especially with their extraordinary home record, but Richard Money is also likely to prioritise the Conference and it is a very difficult game to call especially with the hosts already facing a fixture back-log having lost their midweek game at Braintree to the elements.
