Lambe ready for Luton showdown

Youngster holds no fear going into clash at Kenilworth Road.

Bermuda international Reggie Lambe holds no fear going into Saturday’s clash at high-flying Luton Town.

Our team face arguably their toughest test of the campaign thus far as they travel to the cauldron that is Kenilworth Road, to take on a Hatters outfit, who have generated some strong momentum in recent weeks.

The Hatters, who boast the second-tightest defence in the Football League, currently sit in the automatic promotion spots in Sky Bet League Two and have won nine of their last 13 matches in all competitions.

“All the boys are telling me that it will be a tough test, so I’m looking forward to going down there,” said Lambe. “They’re one of the favourites for promotion, but hopefully we can go down there and come back with, if not three points, then at least one point.

“It’s ideal to play [in a tough atmosphere]. Their fans will get behind them, so we need to just silence the crowd and play our game.”

Lambe made just his second start of the season as we beat in-form Plymouth Argyle, 1-0, at One Call Stadium last weekend, in what was Adam Murray’s first game as caretaker boss.

The 23-year-old admits that Paul Cox’s departure as manager has had an effect on the squad, as everyone is now working hard to try and impress whoever is appointed as permanent boss.

“At any time when a manager goes you feel like you have to do more to impress whoever comes in,” he continued.

“I think everyone is on a high because of the last couple of results and wants to play, so there’s good competition for places right now. Everyone is playing at top form, so it’s hard to choose.”

Looking back at the Tuesday’s gritty 1-0 win in the FA Cup at Concord Rangers, the youngster said: “We went down there and just needed to come away with a win as anything else would have been disappointing. The pitch wasn’t the best and the crowd were really behind them, but we had our fans there too and that helped us.”

Lambe is also pleased that striker Vadaine Oliver has extended his loan with us until the New Year.

“I think he strives in that position,” he added. “He wins every header so we can run off him; we can get balls to feet from him; he’s a presence up front and a real handful.”
