Top two wary of Luton Town, says Andy Drury

Luton Town winger Andy Drury says the Blue Square Bet Premier's top two will be wary of the Hatters' recent form.

Town have won four out of their last five to close the gap on Crawley and AFC Wimbledon and are now just five points off the top spot.

Drury, 30, told BBC Three Counties Radio: "At the moment they're up there but we're up there as well.

"If you were to pick a threat out of all three of us I'm sure their managers would pick our team."

Luton lost ground in the chase for promotion after dropping points to Grimsby, Darlington and Gateshead in September.

But their last two outings have yielded ten goals after a 4-2 win at Eastbourne and a 6-1 hammering of Forest Green.

I think we had a hard fixture list, we've played all the hard teams away and hopefully we can go on a run now

And Drury, who has scored four times in 13 Luton appearances since joining from Stevenage in the summer, is optimistic his side can continue their good form and fire themselves to the top of the table.

"It's always nice to be at the top with everyone looking up at you," he said.

"If we can just put a big run together we'll be there or thereabouts.

"I think we had a hard fixture list, we've played all the hard teams away and hopefully we can go on a run now."

Meanwhile the former Ebbsfleet and Lewes midfielder has confirmed his withdrawal at half-time against Forest Green was a precaution.

"My hamstring was cramping up towards the end on Saturday," he added.

"We were 3-0 up at half-time and I didn't want to come out and risk pulling it and being out for a few weeks."
