Hatters shorts

It’s changing times

HATTERS: Town’s moving feast of games is proving a real bugbear for boss Gary Brabin.

Three matches have already been moved this season for a variety of reasons, including Tuesday night’s 2-2 draw at Hayes & Yeading.

And while refusing to use it as any kind of excuse, Brabin admitted he was a little miffed by the alterations.

He said: “One of the things I’m getting used to at the moment as Luton manager is that everyone wants to change your games around. It happens all the time. There’s been quite a few changes already.

“Some weeks you get a longer rest after Saturday, but ideally you want to be playing with everyone else and there will be no excuses for Friday.”

Town fans praised

HATTERS: A total of 727 Hatters made up the 1,015 attendance at the Kingfield Stadium for Luton Town’s 2-2 draw with Hayes & Yeading on Tuesday night.

Manager Gary Brabin praised the supporters who’d made their way around the snarled up M25 to cheer on his side. He said: “They were brilliant. We didn’t think that many were coming today because of the traffic. It wasn’t until after 20 minutes that we realised how much of the ground we’d taken over.”

Crow keeps it secret

HATTERS: Danny Crow revealed he has a goals target to hit before Christmas but is keeping schtum on what it is.

He said: “I’ve got one for myself. By Christmas I’m aiming for a set amount but it’s a secret. It’s a personal thing I want to do.

“I just want the team to keep winning and if I play any major part I will be very happy.”

Brabin’s top target

HATTERS: Alongside his desire for a new striker Luton boss Gary Brabin is hoping his injury problems will soon subside.

The likes of George Pilkington, Shane Blackett, Freddie Murray, Dan Gleeson and long-term casualty Charlie Henry have all been sidelined for long periods.

Brabin said: “We’ve got a few players that need to come back from injury that will also strengthen the squad.”

Harford admission

HATTERS: Luton Town legend Mick Harford has revealed that the own goal he scored for Derby against Luton at Kenilworth Road in 1991 to help keep the Hatters up was deliberate.

The revelation came while talking to Richard Keys and Andy Gray on talkSPORT.
