Luton moved four points clear at the top of the table with yet another victory at Kenilworth Road, their 11th straight win on home soil, when they beat Barnet 2-1 in an extraordinary game on New Year’s Day, writes Charlie McCann.

Whether the game should have started or certainly finished is debatable, but the Hatters have the points on the board and gave them a perfect record over Christmas with only the serious injury to Jonathan Smith on Boxing Day marring a busy and successful period.

We would like to wish Jonathan a full and speedy recovery and are confident that when he next takes the field in a Luton shirt it will be in the FL72.

Cambridge United remain formidable at home but dropped points away at both Hereford and Nuneaton recently and have been deposed as favourites for the title.

BetVictor now make Luton 8/11 market leaders with Cambridge 6/4 and 14/1 Bar and it does look a virtual match at this stage.

Andre Gray continues to shorten to be the league’s leading marksman - now into 3/1 (from 4s) on the back of a run that has seen the striker net seven in his last seven games.

That has taken his tally to the season to 14 just one behind Aldershot’s Brett Williams (6/1) with strike partner Paul Benson just five behind and 16/1 to finish the season as the league’s top marksman.

The Hatters travel to Sincil Bank on Saturday for a 1pm kick-off and BetVictor make Luton the 5/6 favourites with the Imps 16/5 and the draw 11/4.

John Still’s men have gone a staggering 18 games without defeat in the League and can be backed at 2/9 to extend their unbeaten run.

Town went through December averaging three goals a game and, despite a promising early start to the season, Lincoln’s defensive frailties have been exposed of late including a 5-1 hiding away at Halifax the stand-out result for Gary Simpson’s men who have gone four games without a win.

Luton should continue their fine run in front of goal, with the 3-1 correct score looking the value at 14/1 or 300/1 for those expecting a repeat of Kiddy’s 6-0 battering.

Shrewd punters amongst us will be dipping their toe in the double result market, Luton winning their last six games half time/full time market and 9/5 to make it seven.
