AWARD CURSE CAN­NOT SAVE HATTERS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

AS FAR as state­ments go, this was an ab­so­lutely mas­sive one from Steve­nage, as they went to one of their main ri­vals for pro­mo­tion and left, de­servedly, with the win.

De­spite claim­ing the man­ager of the month award in the week, there was lit­tle chance of the curse com­ing to haunt Boro chief Darren Sarll.

Once Luke Wilkin­son had put the vis­i­tors in front early on, Lu­ton strug­gled to re­ally look like they were go­ing to find a way back into the game, un­til late on when vis­it­ing keeper Chris Day played a blinder.

With Boro keep­ing their op­po­nents at arm’s length for most of the sec­ond pe­riod, they then broke with dev­as­tat­ing ac­cu­racy to seal the points through Ben Kennedy’s won­der­ful strike.

It had Sarll dream­ing of go­ing up with­out the need for the play-offs, although Lu­ton boss Nathan Jones was left ques­tion­ing his play­ers’ de­sire for the pro­mo­tion run-in ahead of a crunch trip to Carlisle on Tues­day night.
