Did you know these 2 Luton Town facts?

Luton Town’s push for survival has been put on pause for now as football takes a backseat until April 30 at the earliest.

Prior to the recent suspension, the Hatters sat second-bottom of the Championship but still with a good chance of survival with six points separating them from safety.

But Graeme Jones will need to sit tight for now and hope that his side can hit the ground running when the action gets back underway.

In the meant time, we have taken a look at TWO Luton Town facts that you might find interesting…

FA Cup joy

In 2013, Luton made history in the FA Cup as they became the first non-league side to beat Premier League opposition.

A Scott Rendell goal in the 80th minute secured a 1-0 win against Norwich City at Carrow Road in the fourth round of the competition – making it the furthest the club had progressed since 1994.

A convincing defeat to Millwall at Kenilworth Road in the fifth round ended their fairytale but it is a moment that remains in the Hatters’ folklore.

QUIZ: The higher or lower Luton challenge – Can you get 15/15?

1 of 15

Last season, did Luton finish higher or lower than 2nd?

Record arrival

Fans will know that goalkeeper Simon Sluga became the club’s record signing when he arrived back in the summer, but did you know it was the first time the record had been broken since the 80’s?

Back in 1989, Luton paid around £850,000 to Odense for Lars Elstrup.

However, they will be hoping this move works out a bit better, as the Dane spent just two years with the club, scoring 18 goals in his first season but just one in his second . Not exactly amazing value for money.
