Centre-half back from suspension while Mark Tyler could return

Town boss John Still will have centre-half Luke Wilkinson to call upon after the defender served a two-match suspension.

Who Wilkinson replaces in the Hatters line-up for Saturday's game with Accrington at Kenilworth Road remains to be seen, with the manager reaffirming his disappointment with the way the Town defended in last weekend's 3-2 defeat at AFC Wimbledon.

Fellow centre-half, and captain, Stephen McNulty serves the last match of a four-game ban, but Town will "probably" be able to call on the services of Mark Tyler, after the goalkeeper missed last Saturday's game with a knee injury, according to the manager.

Alex Lawless and Paul Benson both came through 90 minutes in the development squad's 3-2 win over Leyton Orient on Tuesday, but neither are likely to be in contention for a start against Stanley this weekend. Lawless is in contention for a place on the bench, but Still explained that striker Benson, who is making a comeback from breaking his leg in November, is probably two or three further development games away from a return to the first team fold.

A hamstring problem has continued to dog Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu but the former West Ham man is set to return to full training next week. 

Meanwhile, Nathan Doyle is making progress from his knee injury and Still believes the midfielder could be back within four weeks.
