STILL SAYS...

24 March 2014

More words of wisdom from the Town chief

A victory at Grimsby on Tuesday night would go a long way in helping the Hatters towards a return to the Football League.

While three points at Blundell Park are always hard to come by, the Town still have plenty of work to do in their remaining nine games to securing promotion.

But should the Hatters finish the job in the not too-distant-future, manager John Still will – perhaps after a drink or too – focus on what League 2 poses for his team next season. 

“It’s my job,” he said at his pre-Grimsby press call on Monday. “Obviously I want to go up. But for me, my job is to get the next rung of the ladder.

“As soppy as it sounds, if we do it, as soon as we do it, I’m going to be happy, I’m going to get drunk, I’m going to enjoy myself.

“But the day after I’ve got to put another foot on the next rung of the ladder, because that’s my job, that’s what I do.

“I’ve become a Luton supporter because I manage the club and I just want the best for everyone. Personally it’s the next step and that’s how it is.

“There’s so much more that we can try and help the club achieve and that’s what I want to do.”

At his Monday meeting with the media, the manager explained, with the squad at his disposal, he could freshen things up selection-wise on Humberside. New signing Luke Rooney is pushing for a start following his cameo against Chester. The same is true of Matt Robinson – who opened the scoring at the weekend – and Cameron McGeehan, who was rested on Saturday.
