Luton boss Buckle: We deserve TV game after Norwich shock

Luton Town boss Paul Buckle says they deserve a TV game after their FA Cup giantkilling at Norwich City.

On Sunday they were drawn at home to Championship side Millwall. According to Buckle, TV companies missed a trick at the weekend by not televising his team's game and he does not want them to make the same mistake again.

The 42-year-old said: "I would like to think the next round will be on TV. It's only right. We're the only non-League team left in the competition. Any draw is a big draw for us.

"If the TV cameras had come on Saturday, they would've got great TV. They probably didn't think we could do it. I'm sure we'll get it in the next round. It'll give us great coverage and put smiles back on the fans' faces after some terrible years."

The club earned £90,000 for reaching the fifth round through Scott Rendell's late winner and a televised match now would net them around £136,000.
