From the opposition

Luton manager Graeme Jones bemoaned his side's injury problems ahead of the trip to The City Ground, but feels that his side can still be competitive against The Reds.


He said: “We’ve got a nine-day period after Nottingham Forest and I just want to try and get everyone fit, that’s the priority.

“I think we’re a competitive team in this Championship, and we haven’t had everybody fit. We kept everybody fit until Brentford, so the work in terms of intensity in training, pitching that correctly, was excellent.

“Then at Brentford we lost Brendan Galloway permanently for this season, and we lost Izzy Brown. A week later we lost Dan Potts. We lost Martin Cranie at Millwall. Callum McManaman, we lost at Millwall.

“It’s been a period where at Luton Town, without bringing anybody in, we needed everybody fit. We’re getting close to it and I am not in the position now where I think we can afford to risk it for one game."
