Jones: Luton instability may help us

21 February 2013

Defender Luke Jones believes Luton Town’s current managerial instability could favour our side when we make the trip to Kenilworth Road this weekend.

The Hatters parted company with Paul Buckle by mutual consent earlier this week, and are currently 11 points adrift of the Blue Square Bet Premier play-off zone.

Jones said: “[In that situation] the players are sort of going out each time to impress whoever is in charge, but it can also have an adverse effected and lead to uncertainty in the club.

“It can also lead to players worrying about things that they shouldn’t be worrying about, but we know it’ll be a tough game down there in a hostile environment.”

The 25-year-old proved his worth to us with a magnificent performance in our midweek victory at Hyde, which included a superb goal-line clearance in the closing stages.

It caps a roller-coaster season for Jones, who, after starting the campaign as a regular in our first team, spent a long spell out of the side midway through the season.

“It was a frustrating period for me when I was out of the side and I had to keep my head down, but I’m glad to be back in the squad now,” continued Jones.

“At Hyde, it was a difficult game and we didn’t really play our best football, but in the end it was a professional performance and we’re glad with the three points.”

He added: “With two more away games coming up, it was important we got off to a good start, but we don’t want to get too carried away because the table can change quite quickly.”

Jones has netted five goals in his 16 league appearances so far this term.
