Harford up for the challenge

11 February 2008 10:54
Luton Town boss Mick Harford says he is the man to turn the club's fortunes around, despite the Hatters being set to drop down into League Two. Harford took charge at Town following the exit of Kevin Blackwell and saw his charges well beaten 4-1 at the weekend by Bournemouth. However, a defiant Harford said afterwards: "We never got out of the blocks and conceded some crazy, crazy goals. "It's the first time I have ever seen a team go into a professional game with no central defenders on the pitch. We've asked the Football League for help, but they don't seem interested. "There's a long, long road ahead of us and we're in a deep, dark tunnel, but there is a light at the end of that tunnel. "I believe the players can respond and I believe I am the right man for this challenge, because make no mistake this is a massive challenge."
