For Luton Town, any points are vital at this stage of the season. They travelled north today to face Huddersfield Town. Town were a Premier League side only two seasons ago and today’s game showed just how far the Hatters had come in such a short time.

Despite being on the end of an absolute, 5-0 shellacking two games ago against Reading and battling to a 1-1 draw against fellow relegation rivals Barnsley, the Hatters were still in with a good shout of avoiding relegation. However, despite inconsistencies of their own, Huddersfield are no pushovers.

That’s how it proved to be in a very tight first-half with neither side able to break the deadlock. However, with points at a premium at this stage of the season and with relegation a real possibility, it was Luton who struck the first blow with Sonny Bradley (49′) finishing off James Bree’s assist. That slender lead was stretched with a second goal courtesy of Elliott Lee (71′) which not only gave Luton the three points and a vital win but now has others nervously glancing over their shoulders.


It was a result that also went down well with Luton Town fans, as you’d expect, over on Twitter. Here’s how Luton Town themselves posted news of the win:
