Buckle impressed by Walker’s impact

HATTERS attacker Dan Walker boosted his chances of being an unlikely play-off hero by scoring both goals in Luton’s reserves 2-1 win at Colchester United on Tuesday, writes Mike Simmonds.

New Town boss Paul Buckle, who has already declared himself a fan of the speedster, said: “Dan is coming into my thoughts as he’s scoring goals.

“We’re already seeing the rewards of putting work into these younger players.

“Development is about doing hours on the training field.

“Dan’s done that, he’s not had a minute’s peace.

“I’ve been on to him because there’s a player there. He’s got the rewards, we’ve got the rewards of getting him out on the training field and will be doing that with all the younger players.”
