Hatters defender Scott Cuthbert is hopeful of retaining the captain’s armband when manager John Still makes his decision on a permanent appointment at the end of the month.

The position, which became vacant when Steve McNulty joined Tranmere Rovers on loan with a view to a permanent move recently, has been filled by summer signing Cuthbert for the past eight games.

“Until I’m told otherwise, I’ll keep captaining the team and I’m delighted to do so.”

He led the side once more against Carlisle on Tuesday and on his chances of being made full-time skipper, he said: “I’ve enjoyed it, the manager’s given it to me when Steve McNulty’s left and I’m loving every minute of it.

“It’s nice to be the leader of the team, they’re a great bunch of lads as well, they work their backsides off every day.
