Luton Town in Focus
Ten in for Luton Town so far – defenders Richards (Gillingham) Turner (Torquay United) Henry (Stevenage); midfielders Matt Robinson (Leicester City) Kasim (Brighton) & Spiller (Gillingham); strikers Rendell (Wycombe), Shaw (Gateshead FC) & Gray from Hinckley; plus keeper Dean Brill to keep Tyler on his toes. Big wedge, but then if you have over 3,500 season ticket holders to please the stakes are high.
