More intelligent running and slight positional changes seem to have reinvigorated the Hatters in recent weeks as their high-line pressing game is reaping its rewards.

O’Connor, who scored one, missed a penalty and had a goal ruled out in the 5-0 drubbing of Kettering on Monday, said: “It’s not running for no reason but running with a purpose and closing down as individuals and units. If one person goes, if someone goes and fills in spaces there’s a meaning to all of it. You might end up out of position but that’s the way we’ve been trying to do things.

“We’ve been winning the ball high and when we are winning the ball back we are suddenly getting it in the final third and are on the counter-attack straight away and I think it’s been positive for us, in the last two games especially.”
