January signing Kal Naismith has been enjoying life at Luton Town thus far and hopes the team can strive towards good things this season.

After signing on the dotted line Friday afternoon, the former Wigan man was thrown straight into the action on Saturday, helping Nathan Jones’ side claim a remarkable 1-0 win against AFC Bournemouth.

Naismith entered the fray in the 34th minute following Tom Lockyer’s injury and looked assured in a left wing-back role.

“It was tough," the number 24 admitted. "A bit of a grind on the legs and in the lungs as I said but the lads were brilliant, the lads helped me through it. Pottsy next to me was superb, the whole back-line and full team were great as well. The lads were just on it and it was a great team performance. It was easy just to fit in really."

The 28-year-old trained just three times prior to his arrival at Kenilworth Road but in the short time he has been with the lads, Naismith has been full of praise for how the team operate.

“It’s been great, I’ve really enjoyed it, it’s obviously difficult when you’ve first joined and you’re trying to get to know everyone, a little bit nervous, but the lads have been different class. The gaffer’s been brilliant, the staff have been great and it’s felt easy, I’ve only been here three or four days, but I’ve really, really enjoyed it.

“The way things are run, the professionalism, the way everything is done there are certainly no corners cut. I’m sure all the lads are grateful to be in this league, it’s a great league to be in and we’re just working hard, the manager is working hard, the coaches are working hard and we’re all pulling in the right direction, trying to do well.”

Looking ahead to this evening’s fixture against Brentford, the Scotsman is well aware of the challenge that lies ahead of the Hatters, but admits the team will take great confidence from Saturday when they arrive at the Brentford Community Stadium.

“We’re be high on confidence after the weekend, but Brentford are an outstanding side as you say. Went very close last year and have carried it on this year, made some great signings and they are a really good side, a really tough side to play against.

“We need to go there, every single one of us be on it and I’m sure we will be confident we can definitely get a result.”
