Over 650 supporters made the trip to Forest Green Rovers on Saturday, while another bumper crowd is expected for this afternoon’s clash with Cambridge United.

Speaking after the goalless draw at the weekend, Griffiths said: “We appreciate it, them coming this distance. It’s not easy to get around the country, I know they lay on coaches, but to get that sort of support was unbelievable.

“That would be unbelievable support for home teams in this league, to bring that to an away game this far away is absolutely fantastic.

“I know the fans sometimes do get a bit frustrated with the way we play, but they’ve been fairly patient with us and been fantastic with us. I’m glad we managed to put on a better performance for them.”

Meanwhile, boss John Still added: “I say it every week, if you play for well supported clubs and you don’t play well, they’re not going to be happy.

“To play for well supported clubs, you put your bit in and everybody has a go, they’ll be happy.

“I know what I’d rather have. Great support that gets behind their team when it does well as opposed to have a few hundred people who aren’t really bothered.

“Luton supporters in my time here which is very short, this is the whole, not groups, I think they’re fantastic supporters, I do.”
