Luton Town at top 'means nothing', says Luke Guttridge

Luton Town midfielder Luke Guttridge says going top of League Two makes no difference at all to his team-mates.

Guttridge scored a late winner against Northampton Town on Saturday to put the Hatters two points clear at the summit of League Two.

"It's brilliant for the club and fans," he told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"But as players it means absolutely nothing. We're in October, there's a lot of football to go. Two or three bad results and you could be mid-table."

Luton are on a run of seven consecutive league wins and are unbeaten in nine matches.

They returned to the Football League after a five-year absence this season and initially made a slow start to the campaign, winning just one of their first six games.

Having not started a league match for five weeks, Guttridge made an impact off the bench against the Cobblers as he scored against his former side.

"It's how football seems to go these days, players scoring against their old clubs," said the 32-year-old.

"From a personal point of view, I'm delighted to get on the pitch and get a winning goal.

"It's Roy of the Rovers stuff. Ask any footballer, when you're not playing it's a frustrating time. All you can do is be ready when you get a chance."
