FA Cup: Non-League Luton Make History
Non-league Luton Town are celebrating one of the biggest upsets in FA Cup history after winning 1-0 against Premier League side Norwich City.
Not since 1989 has a team from outside of England's top four football divisions beaten a side from the top flight.
Luton, who have been beset by financial problems over the past decade, achieved the giant-killing courtesy of Scott Rendall's late goal at Carrow Road.
The substitute's strike sent the Hatters into the fifth round of the historic cup competition.
The last non-league minnow to achieve such an upset was Sutton United, who defeated Coventry City 2-1 in the third round 24 years ago.
Luton, who sit sixth in the Blue Square Bet Premier Division, earned Saturday's lucrative tie at Norwich after knocking out Championship side Wolves in the third round.
Despite being 84 places below them in the league structure, Paul Buckle's team matched the Canaries throughout the game, before Rendall's goal settled the contest to send his side into the last 16 and the travelling fans into ecstasy.
Luton, who suffered three-successive relegations between 2007 and 2009 amid financial irregularities to lose their league status, will find out who they face in the fifth round when the draw is made on Sunday afternoon after Oldham Athletic's tie with Liverpool.
The team will still have to conjure a few more upsets to emulate the club's best ever run in the competition, though. The Hatters were beaten finalists in 1959.
