Bedfordshire Police said that the two men were among five busloads of Kidderminster supporters returning home when an argument started between local residents and patrons travelling on the last bus in the train.

Queued in halting traffic, the fans left the bus to remonstrate when the fight broke out.

"It led to the coach being attacked," a police spokesman said. "Then some of the supporters got off to remonstrate and a fight ensued."

Both men are being treated in hospital for non life-threatening injuries, although one was stabbed twice.

"Four local men have been arrested and a police presence remains in the area where the violence broke out in Dunstable Street near the Mansfield Road junction," police said.

It appeared the attackers did not have any connection to Luton Town.
