    Just snuck a few bucks on Luton at $10.00. That will give us a head start! We are paying $1.25. Hope the bookies have got it right!

    Not bad odds 8/1 for a team that has only been beaten once in 8 games.

    I don't think Luton will turn up and roll over,they are desperate to stay up and have done reasonably well since the end of January. A win for them tonight would put them onto a chance of survival so no complacency please.

    hopefully they will go looking for 3 points which will give more space for Pablo to thread passes through them

    I expect them to park the bus and hit us on the counter and set pieces.

    First goal will be key. If we get it, I expect the game to open up and we might get a couple then.

    We have the players to run, stretch, make chances and the game aganst Fulham showed we can take them (even Bambi!).

    Need to hit first, hard, keep hitting. First goal will determine the course of the game, just like Saturday.

    Saw that Luton had players that won't be playing due to contracts ending? Surely they could have worked something out.

    I had predicted 1-0 to us but if they are playing 2nd stringers and they've not played together that's a big stretch. even parking the bus will be hard to hold the score line down.

    Think Pablo will be on the bench in case of emergencies, as his hamstring isn't right.
    Should have enough to beat these, but may need his guile in the end.
