Hatters goalkeeper Mark Tyler is expected to make his 250th appearance for the club during the trip to Burton Albion tomorrow.

The 37-year-old, who joined Luton in 2009, has been virtually an ever-present for boss John Still, who handed him his debut while at Peterborough back in 1994, since taking over at Luton.

Still said: “I’m very fortunate as I’ve known Mark, from giving him his debut at Peterborough, where he had a fantastic and a long career.

“He’s had a fantastic long career here too, he’s been absolutely terrific and doesn’t show any signs of disintegrating does he?

“He just comes in and does his job and I see him in a much, much different light than when I walked through the door here as he’s a bigger, stronger more iconic person than when I first came.”
