Former Luton trainee hopes to upset former employers

ST ALBANS City defender Adam Everitt believes the Saints can win when they travel to Luton Town in the FA Cup on Saturday.

The Hatters were probably the biggest side the Saints could draw but Everitt feels that, despite the impressive stature of their opponents, it is a winnable tie.

“I can’t wait. Obviously its probably the biggest tie we could have got but also it’s a winnable game,” Everitt told the Herts Advertiser

“They’re only the league above, I don’t want any of this attitude ‘it’s a big day out’ because it’s not, we want to go there and win. We want to put this result behind us, go to Luton and win.

“We are underdogs because we’re in the league below but that’s not how we are looking at it at all and if there’s any of that feeling going around the club then there shouldn’t be.

“They’re just a league above, they’re not the team they were four or five years ago when they were in the Championship. They’re a Conference team and they’re beatable.

“We played Crawley in pre-season and matched them and they’re top of that league so there’s nothing to say we can’t go there and get a result.”

Everitt returned to action for City on Saturday following a three game suspension but it was an afternoon to forget for all concerned as City threw away a two goal lead to lose 4-3 to Weston-super-Mare.

“Its incredibly disappointing really,” the former Luton trainee said.

“Where do you start in a game like that? I’ve never been involved in a game like that.

“We just crumbled that’s the only way to describe it. There are no excuses, it’s nothing to do with Steve (Castle) it’s the boys that are out on the pitch that crumbled.”

Everitt hopes a positive result at Kenilworth Road on Saturday can start repaying the fans after a disappointing start to the season.

“You can’t blame the fans for being disappointed with the way we’ve performed at home this season,” the defender explained.

“Hopefully we can get a good result there and bring a few more fans to some of our home games because at the moment I don’t blame them for not coming if I’m honest.”
