Luton coach Mike Newell
, hoping to inspire his struggling team, pinned the famous Rudyard Kipling
on the locker room wall. "But I don't think any of the players could make head or tail of it," he said. "I
left it up for an hour but took it down before it got defaced." Striker Rowan Vine
said, "I didn't know what it was. I thought it might be an angry letter from a fan so I
kept well away from it." But captain Steve Robinson
did take a peak and said, "I certainly knew the gaffer [coach] didn't write it." Still, Luton went out and beat League
Championship leader Preston, 2-0.
