It's all a numbers game, isn't it?THREESY DOES IT
The Hatters now have a perfectly balanced record from their first nine matches back in League 2 following the Saturday triumph at Cambridge United, of won three, drawn three, lost three. The clean sheet kept by the Town was also their third in succession – not bad considering that, before kick-off on Saturday, Cambridge were the division’s top goalscorers. It’s now 292 minutes since Mark Tyler disconsolately picked the ball out of the net against Plymouth Argyle.
AWAY THE LADS
A magnificent 2,050 Town supporters made the trip to the Abbey Stadium to witness the 1-0 win, to boost the average Hatters’ average away support to over 1,000. The most remarkable statistic, however, was that Saturday’s figure was the eighth highest away following in the entire country. Passion knows no bounds.
13 FOR 13
Mark Cullen’s 80th-minute winner was the striker’s 13th goal in Luton colours. The Town number 13 was quickest to react to Chris Dunn’s penalty save to ensure the Town left the Abbey Stadium with all three points. It was the former Hull man’s 45th appearance and his second important goal against Cambridge in successive seasons. They must be sick of the sight of him.
