Luton's prospective new chairman Nick Owen says their 30-point deduction has left the club fighting for its future.

The club will start the League Two season on minus 30 points after being hit by two separate penalties for various financial irregularities.

"We can't believe the tribunal can be so vindictive," Owen, who heads the consortium trying to take over the club, told BBC London 94.9.

"What on earth are they thinking of, trying to destroy us like this?"

The Hatters, who have been relegated for two years in a row, had 10 points deducted last month by the Football Association for breaching regulations over agent fees.

And Luton Town Football Club 2020 (LTFC2020), the company that will take over the club, was told by the Football League that it must accept a further 20-point deduction in order to be allowed in the League.

The 20-point deduction came as a punishment for the club failing to agree a Company Voluntary Agreement (CVA) with creditors after applying to come out of administration.
