Scott: We fancy ourselves against anyone

Keeper says he and his team-mates believe they can overcome the league leaders tonight.

30 January 2018

Chairboys keeper Scott Brown says his side have the confidence to take on any side in the division as they prepare for the trip to league leaders Luton Town this evening (k.o. 7.45pm).

A bumper crowd awaits the teams under the lights at Kenilworth Road as the Hatters seek a win which would take them 12 points clear at the top of the table, while the Blues have a 100% winning record in the league in 2018 to maintain.

Speaking to BBC Three Counties’ Monday Night Sports Show, Brown said recent results have given him and his team-mates the belief that they have what it takes to return to action with a bang after a 10-day break from matches.

“When you’re in good form you want to keep playing, so it’s been a long 10 days, but we’ve had time on the training ground to work on a few things tactically and get some bodies refreshed for the big game on Tuesday,” he said.

“Luton have got a fantastic squad with a lot of experience and we know we’ll be up against it, but it’s 11 vs 11 and we fancy ourselves against anyone.

“The gaffer’s built up a squad here where we might not have the infrastructure of a club like Luton but we’ve got 20-odd players who get behind each other and give 110% every time we pull on the shirt,” he added.

The reverse fixture in September saw Luton come from behind to snatch a win with two late goals, but Brown says the Blues’ performance on that day proved that they have what it takes to compete at the top end of the table, even though they were left empty-handed on the day.

“We played really well for 60-70 minutes and they had a spell at the end and went on to score twice in the 90th minute. We wanted to go on and win it rather than settle for a point, so we were really disappointed to lose the game, but we know we’re capable of going there and getting the three points.”

And the 32-year-old hopes it’s the 772 Chairboys fans who leave victorious from Kenilworth Road which has developed into a fortress for the Hatters, boosted by passionate support in great numbers of Luton fans.

“They’re a really well supported club who must be top of the attendance league with fantastic numbers home and away. We know that we’ll have to be at our very best to get the three points and keep their crowd quiet.

“But we’ve sold out our allocation of tickets and we’re very grateful to our fans who travel up and down the country and spend their hard-earned money to support us every week.”
