[LNB]Money told BBC Three Counties Radio: "It's one thing having money to spend but another to spend it wisely. [LNB]"In fairness to the manager it appears that he's spent it extremely wisely." [LNB]He added: "You have to have a whole sense of admiration for the fact they're prepared to put their neck on the block and have made it very open that they're planning on winning this league."[LNB] [LNB][LNB] Evans' side currently sit three points clear at the top of the Blue Square Bet Premier table, with Luton five points behind in fourth spot and Money admitted they would be a hard side to beat. [LNB]"They'll expect to come here and win tomorrow - I never thought I'd be the manager of Luton Town and be the underdog, but this is one of those occasions. [LNB]"They are a very good team and have started very strongly and I have nothing but admiration for the way they've gone about it," Money added. [LNB]While Crawley have been steadily extending their budget, Luton have been reducing theirs, but Money was adamant that fewer transfers would not stop them competing.[LNB] Crawley have a good side but apart from Tubbs, Brodie and Torres they do not have a lot to offer luton4life77 "We haven't had any money to spend," the Luton boss said. "We're reducing costs and the budget, it's a sensible course of action but it doesn't mean we're getting any less competitive. [LNB]"We would argue we are the only team in the division because of the crowds we get."
