ON THE ROAD AGAIN

15 November 2013

The Town will equal a club record sixth successive away fixture when they travel to Chester on Saturday.


The Hatters haven’t played at Kenilworth Road since a 4-1 win over Hyde on 12th October and have since been on the road with fixtures against Tamworth, Woking, Gateshead, Welling and Braintree.


It was 100 years ago the Town time last had a run of six consecutive away matches. In the 1913/14 campaign the sequence of matches consisted of three matches in the Southern League Division Two and three in the Southern Alliance between 8th October and 15th November. The Hatters won twice but lost four during that sequence.


Twelve years prior to that the Town played six successive matches away from home between 31st March 1902 and 19th April 1902. That spell was similarly unsuccessful: the Hatters only won once (a 4-2 win at Northampton) and lost three and drew twice.


In the current sequence the Hatters have already won three times, at Tamworth, Woking and Braintree. Can the Town make it four at Chester? If you want to find out why not make the trip to the Deva Stadium? It’s pay on the day for Hatters fans as John Still’s side aim to make it 11 league games without defeat in the Skrill Premier.
