The Hatters’ shot shy start to the season will come to an end, boss John Still has insisted.

In five league games this term the Hatters have notched just four goals, a stark contrast to their free-scoring exploits in the Conference last year.

With golden boot winner Andre Gray now at Brentford, strikers Mark Cullen, Paul Benson, Ross Lafeyette and Alex Wall have just the solitary goal between them this term.

After being priced out of a move for Barnet’s Keanu Marsh-Brown Still decided not to shuffle his deck on transfer deadline day, instead insisting that there is enough talent in the front line to win games.

He told Luton News: “We scored an incredible amount of goals last year which Andre was a part of and you will miss that out of your team.

“Though I don’t lose sight of the fact that Cullen scored goals when he was involved last season, Benson scored goals, as did Lawless and Guttridge.

“There are goals in there.

“There were a couple of games were Andre came off last year and Cullen came on and scored.”

Still added that less chances have been created as the Hatters have encountered off field problems,

He said: “It is about finding another way.

“The way I had in my mind is with that wide player on one side and with a wide player on another side.

“Unfortunately Jake Howells has had to play a bit of left back and there was no-one on that right side so finding that collective balance has not been easy.”
