No fresh injuries worries for Hatters trip to Nuneaton
A fully-fit Town will head to Nuneaton aiming to stretch their lead at the top of the Skrill Premier even further.
Last weekend’s 7-0 thrashing of Hereford and Cambridge’s goalless draw with Wrexham meant the Hatters’ advantage is now eight points over their nearest challengers, who the Town can pull further clear of with Richard Money’s side involved in an FA Trophy semi-final.
The Hatters only have long-term casualties Jonathan Smith and Danny Fitzsimons missing for the weekend, with John Still able to pick from a strong group for the trip to Liberty Way.
“Everybody seems to be fine,” Terry Harris, the Town’s assistant manager, said at Thursday’s press call.
“We’ve been a little bit limited because of the conditions from the training area, so we played an in-house game on a 4G astro-pitch on Wednesday for the ones that haven’t been playing.
“In the past we’ve played a lot of the friendly games midweek, but it’s been difficult to get games under us.
“We had to play in-house and everybody is fine and everybody is fine from last Saturday as well.”
That includes midfielder Cameron McGeehan who injured his arm in the demolition of the Bulls last week.
The on-loan Norwich teenager extended his loan until the end of the season on Wednesday and Harris revealed the youngster is fine to continue is role in the centre of the Town midfield.
“When he first went down I think the shout from the dugout was that it looked quite bad really,” admitted Harris. “But I think he just hyper-extended his elbow really rather than anything else.
“He’s just iced it and he’s fine. He’s today and he’s fine.”
