A Big Prize For The Winners

A Big Prize For The Winners

The FA Cup could offer a welcome respite for Luton Town tomorrow night, amidst the turmoil that surrounds them after going into administration. The club were deducted the mandatory 10 points last month when administrators were brought in due to mounting debts, caused by a drop in revenue.

The points deduction now sees them joint bottom of the League 1 table with Bournemouth on 13 points. Despite the players not being paid for the last six weeks, they will welcome the FA Cup game against the Reds, not just because of the chance to forget about their current woes, but also the opportunity of playing Liverpool and the chance of easing their financial worries.

Forest will hopefully leave any sympathy they have for the plight of the Hatters in the changing room and progress to the third round and earn their own big fat pay day. There can be no denying we could use an injection of cash as well, what with the January transfer window fast approaching. The subject of a new striker is never far away and whilst we may not be struggling financially, last years Cup run showed that progress in this competition does have it's rewards. The games against Charlton and Chelsea netted the club a not to be sniffed at half a million quid. That could go a long way in January and could be the difference between a recognised goal scorer, or a great pretender.

The reward for either Forest or Luton is a home tie against the Scouse. That should guarantee a sellout ground for both and then there's the money from Sky TV as well. All in all, tomorrow's game is a big one for both sides. Albeit for differing reasons. Luton will be confident as their home form has remained good, but so will the Reds, who can boast a decent run of form themselves. The Hatters had the weekend game with Millwall postponed due to the weather, but drew 1-1 in midweek away at Oldham. Forest will be buoyed by the 2-0 win away at Brighton on Friday.
