Luton Town vs. Crewe Alexandra

Luton Preview

It's a trip down to Luton tomorrow. Three points could all but secure safety whilst defeat would put us back in the mire.

You will however be hard pushed to find a team who have been in the mire more than Luton have in recent times.

Facing 50 charges from the FA for breaching rules, 3 managers in 12 months, administration and now inevitable back to back relegations. There doesn't seem to be a dull moment at Luton at the moment.

A defeat for the Hatters tomorrow will put them within one game of relegation whilst the Alex could extend an unbeaten away run to six games.

Vital Quotes:

'They've made some astute signings and have been on a little bit of a run.

'The first season is always difficult after such a magnificent manager (Dario Gradi) has left the club.

'They are renowned for the way they play their football and I'm sure Steve (Holland) won't change that.'
