Town duo could even be on the bench at Whaddon Road
The Hatters could be boosted by the return of Alex Lawless and Luke Guttridge for Saturday’s Sky Bet League 2 game at Cheltenham.
The duo have both missed long periods of the campaign so far, with foot injuries restricting the pair to just 13 starts in all competitions between them.
Town boss John Still says they will travel with the squad to Whaddon Road at the weekend and could even be involved.
“Lawless and Guttridge will both be with us on Saturday,” explained Still at his Thursday press call. “Whether or not they’ll be included I don’t know, we might want to give them another week.
“There’s certainly a chance [they could be on the bench], absolutely. They’ve trained this week but let’s see how they are tomorrow [Friday]. They might be a little more tired the some of the other lads but by next week they’ll be there or thereabouts.”
Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu will train fully as of next week as he continued to ease back from a hamstring problem, but the Hatters will be without the services of Luke Rooney once more at the weekend. Still confirmed the winger will have an operation on a hernia on Monday.
