Nathan Jones lamented Luton’s “out of character” defending in the first leg, as they squandered a 2-1 interval lead to trail 3-2 going into the return at Kenilworth Road. The Hatters had the second-best defensive record over the course of the regular season but were left frustrated by individual errors in a match that was more frenetic than many anticipated.
However, the two teams could revert to type here. In general terms, Luton much prefer a measured approach, gaining a foothold first and building a head of steam later. So Jones should be keen for them to eradicate the lapses in concentration that besieged them at Bloomfield Road, through fear of the tie getting beyond them before they can find top gear.
Blackpool, on the other hand, have a lead to protect and will fancy their chances of keeping the Hatters at arm’s length over the 90 minutes. The Seasiders have played the rest of the top seven away from home since February, picking up 10 points from six games and conceding only six goals, four of which arrived in stoppage time of either half.
It’s a sample that includes the trip to Luton on April Fool’s Day when the Seasiders had the better of a scrappy affair only for Dean Lyness to spill a routine save into the path of Ollie Palmer on the stroke of full time. This time, Gary Bowyer’s men look a decent bet to complete the job. Back the 0-0 half time score at 9/4 and stick a point on no goalscorerat 11/1.
