Hatters centre back Luke Wilkinson believed he has been managed just right by Town boss John Still.

After Luton’s recent 2-0 defeat at Shrewsbury, Wilkinson was rested for the following 1-0 loss to Plymouth.

He has returned for Hatters’ last three games though, helping keep three clean sheets, with excellent personal displays at York and Cambridge in particular.

Wilkinson said: “I do think it’s helped me massively, I feel a lot more refreshed.

“Maybe in the Shrewsbury game, I was a bit tired towards the end, so missing that Plymouth game did me a lot of good, I think he’s managed me really there.

“I missed a bit of pre-season with a back problem, but I’m feeling fit now.

“Last year was frustrating when I was at Dagenham as I wasn’t the fittest.

“But I feel as though I’m really getting back fully fit now and hopefully I can push on and help the team win as many games as I can.”

With the three consecutive shut outs, Hatters are starting to show similar signs to last season, in which they kept a record number of clean sheets, and Wilkinson is well aware how valuable they are.
