Prof’s Head-2-Head Luton Town V Lincoln City

Luton Town’s 3-0 win over Dartford FC lends some hope to the chances that there could yet be goals in a game between two sides averaging a goal a game for and just half a goal against per game. John Still and Gary Simpson both set their teams to go out and play passing football but for both defence appears to be the best form of attack.  The Imps took 574 to Barnet last week suggesting this could well be the divisions highest gate of the season, but it is certain to be a defining moment for both sides.  Luton can catapult themselves from 11th to the play-offs with a win whilst the Imps could go third.

Thank you for reading The Prof

Hello everyone,  it’s your learned Prof here from the University of Lincoln. After another slim win this would be one 1-0 to the mighty Imps that would go down a treat.  Lincoln face Luton, the Manchester United of the Non-League pyramid, a David V Goliath encounter. Luton should not be here, the 30 point deduction smacked of an agenda, with a budget and fan-base most  League 1 teams would love. It shows the harshness of the two up two down system.

But enough of the politics, let us look at the facts and stats and remember that games of football are only won and lost out on the pitch.

  1. One red card only for Luton. McNulty’s sending off was rescinded.

  2. Winning 3, drawing 1 and losing 2 from your last 5 games is interesting. Did someone from Crawley’s accounts department help with this article?

    Joking aside you taking the trouble to post this info on our website is appreciated despite the odd numpty comment.
