SQUAD NEARING FULL FITNESS FOR COBBLERS TEST

23 October 2014

Selection headaches on the horizon for the boss

Town boss John Still has no fresh injury worries as his squad continues to near full fitness head of Saturday's game with Northampton at a near-sell-out Kenilworth Road.

Only striker Ross Lafayette, who is recovering from a successful hernia operation, is definitely unavailable for the match with the Cobblers, as the Hatters aim to make it seven wins on the spin in League 2.

Still watched a team containing the likes of Jake Howells, Luke Rooney, Alex Lawless, Curtley Williams, Fraser Franks and Paul Connolly play in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Hemel Hempstead Town on Wednesday afternoon.

The Hatters have another development squad match next week, against Peterborough at Kenilworth Road, with the boss likely to give more minutes to over a dozen of players who require match practise.

And with the return of so many players, the manager is well aware of the selection headaches that he will soon have.

"Christmas isn't far away, it's an important time of year and we need a squad available that can cope with the demand," Still said at his Thursday press conference.
