Redknapp still aiming for top spot

"Who knows where we're going to finish, but I am looking to finish top," Redknapp said despite his team having just one point from two games. "There is only two games gone and that is still the aim. It's a very open division and anyone can be up there. But we've not got the quality at the moment. I lost three fantastic strikers last year and two very good left-sided players.

"The difficulty is in finding players to replace them because no one wants to give good players away cheaply, but we've still got a bit of time before the transfer deadline." Luton are now second in the league following Saturday's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace - another side relegated from the Premiership last season. Luton's manager, Mike Newell, said: "People will no doubt be getting carried away in the euphoria of it all, but it's only two games in and there is miles and miles left to go. We're on a bit of a roll, but that doesn't come easy - it comes by good players working hard for one another. If you get into the habit of not losing games it is a good habit to have. But football has a habit of jumping up and slapping you in the face so none of us will be getting too excited."

Dean Morgan hit a 90-minute winner for Luton after the hosts had twice levelled following strikes from Matt Oakley and Kenwyne Jones for the Saints.
