Boss unhappy with lack of discipline so far
John Still has admitted he has been disappointed with the discipline of his players in the opening five matches of the League 2 campaign that has seen the Town pick up just the one victory.
The Hatters go into Saturday’s live game with Plymouth Argyle awaiting their first home win back in the Football League after a defeat to AFC Wimbledon and a draw against Bury.
The Town haven’t won since the opening day triumph at Carlisle and Still is calling for his players to cut out the errors and focus on their jobs against John Sheridan’s Pilgrims.
“It’s been a mixed start but I’m not concerned that the start has been mixed – I’ve been concerned with the slight lack of discipline in our game that has contributed so far,” the Hatters boss told the media at his press conference on Thursday.
“We didn’t start last season particularly well, but I didn’t see us see us making discipline errors like we have this season. We should be better and that’s been disappointing.
“People need to know their jobs and stick to their function in the team. Sometimes it happens in football where a player, who wants to influence the game more, lands up doing somebody else’s job opposed to doing their own job and working hard for the team.
“It’s not a bad fault to have, but I say to players ‘do your job and don’t worry what someone else’s job is’.
“If somebody isn’t doing their job that can be identified, and if they’re not doing that I will get someone who can. It’s important players stick to their jobs – that’s the key.”
