Luton manager Richard Money insists his side have proved they have what it takes to make the FA Cup third round after overcoming Rochdale 2-0 in their first-round replay at Spotland.

Kevin Gallen's second-half brace secured the Blue Square Premier side a place in the second round, where they will face another League Two side Rotherham.

A jubilant Money said: ``It sets up a second-round tie against Rotherham, another team from a division above us who will start as favourites. But I don't believe there are any better teams than Rochdale in League Two, so we have nothing to fear going to the Don Valley Stadium."

He added: ``It was a thoroughly disciplined performance away from home against a top team, and when we needed Shane Gore to make a save he stepped up to the plate. I think over the course of the two games we deserved to go through.

``Kevin Gallen has been a quality goalscorer in his time and he still is. He can be a real threat for us and both his goals were well taken. He deserved them for a really workmanlike performance.''

Rochdale boss Keith Hill said: ``The only thing I was disappointed with, except for the scoreline, was the last 10 minutes when we started to change our strategy as a result of one or two calls from the crowd."
