SATURDAY IN NUMBERS

17 November 2014

11 – The Town extended their unbeaten run in League 2 to 11 matches on Saturday with the 1-0 win over Tranmere Rovers. It is the Hatters’ best run of form in the Football League since a 14-match unbeaten run that spanned from December 2004 to February 2005 in League 1 under Mike Newell.

249 – Mark Tyler made a crucial save in the final minute against Tranmere to ensure the Town earned all three points. Should the 37-year-old be involved in next Saturday’s game with Burton then the goalkeeper will make his 250th appearance in Luton colours.

6 – Ricky Miller netted his first Football League goal in the win over Rovers, and the strike was also the sixth netted by a substitute already this season – and the second from Miller. Five of those six goals have helped the Town accrue an additional nine points in League 2 this term. Without those points the Hatters would be ninth in the table.

2 – Jonathan Smith played the final pass which led to Miller’s winner, his second assist of the season so far for the Hatters. 11 different players have assists to their name so far this campaign, with Andy Drury leading the way with five, from Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu one behind with four.

9,061 – Saturday’s attendance against Tranmere was the fifth highest at Kenilworth Road so far this season and was the seventh highest in England on Saturday. Understandably, England’s game against Slovenia attracted the most spectators, and with Premier League and Championship games off the schedule, the largest domestic gate in England came in the match between Swindon and Bristol City, which saw 12,565 squeeze in to the County Ground. Plymouth versus Portsmouth attracted the biggest in League 2 with 10,354 witnessing Argyle’s 3-0 victory at Home Park.
