DOUBLE figures for the Hatters were a real possibility if they had been more clinical in front of goal on Tuesday night, writes Mark Wood.

Manager Richard Money and winger Andy Drury were both sure Town should have scored more as they thumped lowly Forest Green Rovers 6-1.

The boss said: “We’ve played well. I thought that we were a little bit loose first half and if I’m honest I wasn’t too happy at half time. We played properly second half.

“I think we forced mistakes. There’s a real energy about the team right now and the movement is very difficult to control.

“If we pass the ball like we can on top of that we are difficult to handle.

“Danny Crow scored to make it 3-0 and we should have been working even more at that stage but took our foot off the pedal.

“Second half, we have scored three and could have had a few more.”

Crow netted twice and strike partner Matthew Barnes-Homer once, with Money saying: “They both may have had hat-tricks but three between them is a good return.”

Drury was equally as delighted, saying: “You have always got to be a bit careful but we were always creating and tightened up a bit at the back second half and made more chances for ourselves.

“I think it sends a message out to other teams to show what we’ve got and lets them know we are doing all we can to win the league.

“I think it could have been into double figures really. But 6-1, we would have taken that before the game.”

And Freddie Murray was impressed by the way the home faithful got behind them after Luton made a flying start, with Drury scoring early on.

He said: “It’s important to come out of the blocks here flying and it has a knock-on effect to the fans.

“Our fans are so good if you give them something to shout about early on so the old cliche is they can be the 12th man. When you are a supporter and your team wins 6-1 it’s easy to get carried away.

“Every team is difficult in this league. You look at the results and everyone is getting turned over.”
