UPDATED: Hatters midfielder Lawless back in the reckoning for Hyde visit
Classy Hatters midfielder Alex Lawless is back in the reckoning for Saturday’s visit of lowly Hyde, writes Mark Wood.
Town picked up no new injury worries in the 3-3 draw at Aldershot on Tuesday night, but the game has come too soon for target man Jon Shaw, while defender Danny Fitzsimons is still out.
Strikers Mark Cullen and Alex Wall picked up minor knocks in Luton’s 1-0 development team win over West Ham United on Wednesday, but boss John Still expects them both to be fit.
On whether Lawless would return Still said: “Absolutely, yeah.”
The news was also generally good for the entire squad, as Still added: “I think everyone, other than the obvious ones, Jon Shaw, Fitzsimons, everyone’s in training.

“Cullen trained today but picked up a knock yesterday against West Ham.
“Alex Wall, you wouldn’t believe it, picked up a knock against West Ham, but I don’t think that’s terrible and I don’t think Cullen’s terrible.
“Alex Lacey has trained today, everyone else has trained today, so we’re looking in decent shape.”
