Gary Mills relishing Luton Town match-up

Bettingpro Staff in Football 28 Feb 2012

York City manager Gary Mills insists his players are relishing the FA Trophy semi-final clash against Blue Square Bet Premier rivals Luton Town.

The Minstermen and the Hatters are both in contention to qualify for the league play-offs this season, and are now also competing for a spot at Wembley, where the FA Trophy will be decided.

Even though York seem to have the most daunting semi-final match-up, playing at home in the first leg against Luton, Mills is optimistic when he looks back on their previous encounter.

He told the York Press: "If everybody is honest, all the teams left in probably wanted to be drawn against Wealdstone and away in the first leg but, while that might have looked the easiest tie on paper, it does not work like that.

"Just ask Cambridge whether Wealdstone were easy or not when they got beaten by them in the last round.

"We've drawn Luton and are at home in the first leg. I would be telling lies if I'd said before the draw that I wasn't bothered whether we were away or not in the second leg.

"It's seen as an advantage and that's why the second and third-placed teams in the play-offs get to play at home in the second legs of the semi-finals.

"But, if you are to achieve things, you have to prove you can beat teams like Luton and we've already done that 3-0 this season so we will relish both games and I can't imagine Luton wanted to draw us.

"It's two great legs to play in and the reward is a final at Wembley, which is fantastic so we've got to go and do the business."
