Signed in the summer from League Two neighbours Northampton Town, Beckwith was a regular fixture in Luton’s defence before getting sent off in the game against Lincoln on September 17.

Since then he has struggled to get past the successful centre-half pairing of George Pilkington and Janos Kovacs – signed in his absence – and a calf injury that ruled him out for almost two months has further added to his woes.

While Beckwith has his sights set on winning back his place in the Luton starting 11 he would also be prepared to look elsewhere in order to play.

He said: “Maybe I can go out somewhere and play some games. I’m 28 years old and I don’t want to be not involved.

“Training’s good for your fitness but there’s nothing like playing games and getting match fitness that way.”
