Luton 'baffled and bewildered' by 30-point penalty

Prospective Luton chairman Nick Owen has hit out the at the Football League's decision to ensure they start next season with a 30-point penalty, claiming the troubled League Two club have been 'kicked in the teeth'.

The Football League hit Luton with a 20-point penalty after coming out of administration, on top of the 10 points already docked by the FA for misconduct charges.

'I'm just baffled and bewildered that they can be so harsh on us. We are dismayed by it and very surprised,' Owen told BBC Radio 5 Live.

'You know you're going to get some sort of sanctions - Leeds got 15 points beyond the 10 they had the previous season, as we had the previous season - but it seems to go on and on, where do you draw the line?

'You lose 10 points immediately on going into administration, we had to get rid of our loan players and sell a number of players, which starts a downward spiral and you get relegated, which is bad enough.

'We are saving a football club which is at the centre of a community and yet we get kicked in the teeth yet again.

'Perhaps five points, 10 points, but 20? It's just breathtaking and I can't understand how anyone who loves football and wants to preserve the Football League as it is can be so incredibly severe.'
