The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

BUR­TON Al­bion showed ex­actly why they are on their way to League One this sea­son with victory at fal­ter­ing Lu­ton Town.

The vis­i­tors were never any­where near top form dur­ing the en­counter at Ke­nil­worth Road, but grabbed an­other cru­cial three points cour­tesy of Matty Palmer’s de­flected late strike.

Lu­ton, who are still in with a shout of the play­offs de­served at least a point for their ef­forts, but against an al­most im­preg­nable Brew­ers de­fence, never re­ally tested keeper Jon McLaugh­lin.

The re­sult means Jimmy Floyd Has­sel­baink’s side are now just one win away from fi­nally reach­ing the third tier of English foot­ball and could well se­cure their place at home to Carlisle next week­end.

For Town though, a tenth de­feat in 12 games was yet an­other ham­mer blow to their hopes of a top-seven berth.

Such is the na­ture of the di­vi­sion though, they are some­how not out of con­tention just yet.
