This is what Rada has said about Luton at his press conference:
“We will try to win this game and see if we can progress.”
“We have experience in the cups in England, and every game is difficult. You cannot go into any game with overconfidence.”
“We are playing against a good, well-organized team with lots of confidence so we cannot underestimate them.”
Three fans in four think we can win this game this afternoon – it would be another very welcome win if we can do that.
