"The support got us that point," says Still
John Still believed the Town’s travelling army of supporters helped the Hatters earn a last-gasp point at Cambridge.
Mark Cullen’s last-minute equaliser preserved the Hatters’ unbeaten run in the Skrill Premier, which now stretches a phenomenal 27 games, whilst the draw also ensured the Town remain 15 points clear of nearest rivals Cambridge.
And the Hatters boss hailed the 2,286 Hatters fans who he felt help suck in the late, late leveller.
“I can tell you now that the 2,200 fans here, and those here in spirit, have got us that point,” said Still. “They stayed behind the team non-stop and never gave up. They raised the volume and continue to get behind the team.
“When I look in the paper at the result, for me, it will read ‘Cullen and in brackets plus 2,200 supporters’.”
Still thought a draw was a fair result between the Skrill Premier’s top two and the manager was delighted with his side’s never-say-die attitude having trailed for the first time in a match since a 4-3 win at Tamworth on 19th October.
“We had to work hard and dig in,” said Still. “This team never know when it’s over and we got a goal right at the end.
“We’re at the business end of the season now and it’s all about results.
“We know we can play great, we know we can score goals and not concede, but today I think we showed that we know that we’re never beaten, and that’s another string to our bow. We go for 90 minutes.”
On goal-hero Cullen, Still added: “We all know Mark’s a good player and I’ve said before many times how unfortunate he is not to be in the team.
“It was a great goal, a great finish, and today we’ve used the full strength of our squad to get a point.
“We made changes. It wasn’t working for Andre. Mark is a different sort of player, a clever one, and that gave Cambridge another problem, a different problem.”
