Season Two: April-May Update
And it came down to just five games to decide where the league title would go, and who would win promotion. Could Luton Town secure promotion and claim a second league title in two years? Could we achieve what was previously thought to be impossible?
We knew at the start of April that three wins would secure us promotion. We claimed four wins, which means that we achieved back-to-back promotions, an incredible accomplishment! But was it enough to win the league? We had continued our form on from March and won the next three games on the bounce. At this stage, we knew we would be promoted. We were also three points ahead of second placed York with two games remaining, and we had a superior goal difference. We knew that one win from our last two games would secure us the title. Our first chance to secure the title came at Mansfield. However, it was not to be for us that day, as we suffered a 2-0 defeat. This meant that going in to the final day, we were leading York on goal difference and we had to equal their result to win the title. Plymouth were our opponents, at home, and we managed to pull back from behind twice in incredible fashion to earn ourselves the League One title! We were champions again, and in dramatic style! What a season it has been, and what a conclusion!
Player Of The Month
I'm sure you're all getting sick of his face at this stage, but it was Euan Smith
who was our best player in the closing stage of the season. He scored a fantastic total of six goals in those five games to hand us the league title. He has been such an inspirational player for us, and it really is a shame that we could only keep him on loan. He will be missed at the Luton camp, that's for sure!
