FITNESS DOUBTS FOR SATURDAY

3 September 2015

Boss has decisions to make ahead of Cambridge trip

The Town could be without a host of players for Saturday's trip to face Cambridge United.

Manager John Still is definitely without the services of the suspended Jack Marriott, who serves the first game of a two-match ban for his red card against Orient on Tuesday, and Paddy McCourt, who is on international duty with Northern Ireland.


The Hatters boss will also assess the fitness of defender Scott Cuthbert after the centre-half came off with a hamstring injury in Tuesday's match.

Hamstring problems are also likely to keep defender Dan Potts and midfielder Nathan Doyle out of action, while striker Paul Benson will also be monitored after picking up a neck injury.

But that's not to say the manager has issues fielding a side. Indeed Still's first decision will be to name who plays in goal with both Elliot Justham and Mark Tyler pushing for a start between the sticks.

"Kevin Dearden [goalkeeper coach] has looked in the rules to see if we can play two keepers," joked Still at his Thursday press conference. "Seriously though, the good thing is that it's not as though I'm having to pick from two bad goalkeepers. Whatever decision I make will be a good one."

The boss spoke at length at his press call and 30 minutes of discussion ans insight will be available to watch later on Hatters Player HD.
