Midfielder Alan McCormack is unlikely to be risked by the Hatters for tomorrow night’s mouthwatering top-of-the-table clash at Exeter City.

The 33-year-old summer signing from Brentford hasn’t featured since coming off against Wycombe Wanderers a month ago with a groin injury, missing Luton’s last six matches.

We know we’ve got to manage him and get him through games as he’s important to us and what we do.

On his progress, boss Nathan Jones said: “He trained last week, but is just having a little problem with his groin, nothing major.

“We know we’ve got to manage him and get him through games as he’s important to us and what we do.

“It’s just a little niggle really, so it’s whether we manage that, what we do with that.

“What we won’t do is take any gambles with any individuals tomorrow.

“It’s a big game, a tough game, so we can’t afford to gamble.”
