The former Northampton man looks likely to be out for the rest of the season with a metatarsal injury and in the four games he’s missed, Town have won just once, drawing two and losing one.

Still said: “You always miss good players, of course you do.

“Luke Guttridge playing, would it make Scott Griffiths’ balls fall any better? Probably not.

“Would it make Steve McNulty’s balls fall any better? Probably not. Would it make Alex Lawless’ crossing any better? Probably not.

“We’ve missed big performers all season. We’ve missed Lawless a lot of this season, we’ve missed Jonathan Smith a lot of the season, we’ve missed Guttridge.

“But we’ve always found a way of overcoming that and keep going, so thats what we’ve done.”
