Luton Town next in the second round of the league cup and with a visit from (mostly) ManU’s fringe first teamers awaiting the winners there’s going to be plenty to play for (and maybe even a bit of belief for the winners that a shock might be possible in round 3).
But let’s not get distracted, Luton will be out to give a good account of themselves and what better way of avenging the 0-5 that they suffered a couple of months ago than by turning the tables on their hosts. And they are capable, having already dumped former PL side Norwich out of the competition.
After the opening day, both Reading (at Derby) and Luton (at Barnsley) won so both teams still have a 100% record. Expecting Reading to field a strongish side but will be a higher proportion of the younger players as there were v Colchester.
Most important question to be answered though is will Reading’s home form start to show decent improvement on the utter **** that has bedevilled the club for the last 3 years?
Charles "first Reading game" Breakspear, from Surrey.
Three previous league cup ties against the hatters. Last time out was a 5-1 romp at the Mad Stad back in 2008 and the one before that was a 4-0 romp back in 2001, also at the Mad Stad. The tie before that was back in1980 when Luton won a two legged affair by 2-0 at Elm Park after a 1-1 at Kenilworth Road.
