WHALLEY TO MISS BURY CUP TIE

4 December 2014

Last week's two-goal hero unavailable

The Hatters will be without a number of players for Saturday's FA Cup tie at Bury - including last weekend's goalscorers Paul Benson and Shaun Whalley.

Benson broke his leg in last Saturday's win over Mansfield and, according to manager John Still, all being well he could be back within six weeks. Whalley picked up a knock in the same fixture in which he scored twice and will sit out the tie against the Shakers.

Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu, Luke Guttridge Alex Lawless, Ross Lafayette and Curtley Williams are also unavailable.

The Town do have one player to call upon in the shape of defender Luke Wilkinson, who returns from a one-match suspension for the red card picked up against Burton a fortnight ago. 

With Benson available, Still hinted that Charlie Walker and Ricky Miller could be involved in Saturday's tie. "The two have impressed us when they've been called upon," the manager said. "Saturday could be the time for one or both of them to step up."

Full reaction and video to follow.
