Hatters boss Paul Buckle has told Adam Watkins to get his head down and work hard as he looks to battle his way back into Town’s starting line-up, writes Mark Wood.
Having returned from a disappointing loan spell at Blue Square Bet Premier rivals Kidderminster Harriers last week, where he made just four appearances, the 21-year-old midfielder was straight back into Luton’s squad for Saturday’s visit of Nuneaton.
Watkins came on as an 83rd-minute substitute as Town equalised seconds later in the 1-1 draw, but Buckle admitted that neither he nor James Dance may have been on the bench for a regular league fixture, saying: “With Watto and James Dance, probably if I’m being truthful if it had been five (subs), they may not have made the bench.
“Everybody is getting a chance and this is why it’s so important to have all of the players ready.”
