The Blue Square Premier play-off final will be contested by the two sides that finished lowest of the four semi-finalists and in fact it’s the team that finished fifth, Luton – who it could be argued are the least deserving of promotion based on league position, that are Ladbrokes’ 5/6 favourites to make it to League Two.
Betfred make York 11/10 to return to the football league and the same pattern is followed in the match betting, where Stan James quote the Hatters at 8/5 to come out on top after 90 minutes and the Minstermen are 15/8 (Skybet) to prevail in normal time.
City are actually searching for their second Wembley success in the space of just over a week after they won the FA Trophy last Saturday but defensively solid Luton are in excellent form having beaten the division’s top two recently and they can nick this one.
Blue Square rate them at 7/2 to emerge triumphant by a one-goal margin and it’s 15/2 courtesy of Paddy Power for the Hatters to grab the game’s only goal.
