Hatters boss John Still has admitted he is interested in signing another striker of the same ilk as veteran Paul Benson.

The 36-year-old was back in the team at the weekend after a neck injury saw him miss 14 games recently.

“I can go and sign a six foot two forward tomorrow, today, but would he be the right one? No he wouldn’t.”

Benson produced an impressive display during the 2-0 win over Barnet, adding another dimension to Luton’s front-line, as Still confirmed he would be interested in bringing another similar type of forward in.

The boss said: “That focal point for attacks which I like, Paul gives us and I think that helps the team.

“People have asked me about would we have another Paul Benson type? The answer to that is yes we would, but its got to be the right one.

“I can go and sign a six foot two forward tomorrow, today, but would he be the right one? No he wouldn’t, but I’ll wait for the right one.”

On just what Benson’s return to full fitness meant for the Hatters, Still added: “Two things you can miss, your best players and your biggest influences and he’s both.

“He’s an influence on the pitch and an influence off the pitch with his knowledge and his ability and he is of a type.

“We can play through Paul, we can plays balls into him and get round him.”
