RED-HOT Luton have their sights on making it back-to-back promotions.

Having come up from League Two, the Hatters have carried on where they left off.

A run of five wins in six games has lifted Nathan Jones’s side into fourth spot – six points behind leaders Portsmouth.

“We aim high here,” said striker James Collins. “We’re aiming for the top two, otherwise we wouldn’t be in this league.

“So we’re quietly confident that if we keep our feet on the ground and keep going, we can achieve something good this year.”

Luton kept up the pressure on the automatic spots with a 3-1 win at Gillingham at the weekend. But it’s their form at Kenilworth Road which is maintaining their charge early in the season.

They are unbeaten at home with seven wins and two draws – Accrington were the last visiting side to win there in March. After thrashing Plymouth 5-1 at Kenilworth Road 10 days ago, TV pundit Ian Holloway likened their performance to Manchester City.

Defender James Justin said: “We feel anything is possible.

“It’s still early stages and things will start heating up around Christmas time and January. That’s when we’ll figure out what’s going to happen.”

But boss Jones insists that the team will not get ahead of themselves as the plaudits stack up.

“They’re at a good level. They are a very honest, humble group.

“They are down to earth so I don’t envisage there being any problem.

“We have in-house meetings and debriefs, so I tell them when they’ve been good and they know when they’ve been good.

“I tell them when they haven’t been as good, so we know where we are.

“We’ve got to make sure our performance levels, our consistency and our focus doesn’t change.

“I think we’ve proved we are competitive at this level. Now it’s about seeing where we can go.”

City have not been to Kenilworth Road since January 2009 when Barry Conlon’s stoppage-time penalty clinched a 3-3 draw.
