Hatters fielded former Juventus defender Andreas Pisani during their 2-1 win over West Ham United on Tuesday night, while former Leicester defender Jide Maduako played and French striker Steve Ahoua also featured.

Still said: “They did okay. I’ve not made my mind up on anything, the one’s who played have been here for a week or so and done quite well.

“I’ll probably get the weekend out the way and then have a look at it, I’m not sure.”

Still has confirmed in the past he is looking to strengthen the right back area with only captain Ronnie Henry and youngster Brett Longden the recognised players in that position.

On Pisani, who has played four times for Juve in Serie B, he added: “It’s an area we’re not strong in and Andrea Pisani, we’ve had him in and he’s done okay.

“The young lad Jide, he’s done okay, we like the look of him.

“But I will give it some thought over the weekend and get that out of the way before I decide if we’ll take it any further.”
