The defender, who will miss this weekend’s League Two clash with leaders Burton Albion due to a hernia operation, knows hopes of going up automatically have gone, but insists they can achieve success through the play-offs.
After winning the Conference title last term, Griffiths said: “There’s only one target in everybody’s mind.
“We couldn’t quite make automatic which is very disappointing, but if we can manage to get in the play-offs, we can do well.
“From what the gaffer said, no Luton team has done back to back (promotions) so it would be a great feeling and a fantastic achievement.”

From previous experience, Griffiths knows they won’t be looking to surrender that lead easily either, as he continued: “They’re going to want to go up as champions in the position they’re in at the moment.
“Having been in that position a few years ago, you’re not going to go anywhere and hold back, you’re going to go out and want to be champions.
“It’s best feeling in the world and might give us the opportunity to look at the little gaps they leave and hopefully get something from the game.”
Town lost 1-0 at the Pirelli Stadium earlier in the campaign and it’s a defeat that still clearly rankles with Griffiths as he added: “I don’t feel we deserved that. From what I can remember it was lapse of concentration on a corner, a dodgy bounce and they scored from it.
“We’ve done everything we can to get back into it, we were very unlucky not to equalise and then put ourselves ahead, so I’m optimistic for Saturday’s game.”
