Luton boss Nathan Jones believes it will be ‘touch and go’ whether he can call upon the undoubted talents of on-loan Chelsea midfielder Izzy Brown for Town’s run-in to the Championship season.

The 23-year-old went off at half time in the 5-0 defeat to Reading with what was later revealed as an Achilles injury by Jones, ruling him out of the 1-1 draw against Barnsley and 2-0 win at Huddersfield on Friday night.

Brown returned to Stamford Bridge for a scan last week and when asked whether he might feature in Luton’s final three games of the season, starting against QPR tomorrow night,l Jones said: “It’s touch and go with Izzy really, but we won’t risk him if he’s not right.

"He’s a very creative player, we might need that in the coming games, so let's see.

"It’s such a quick turnaround between games, so people don’t get too much time to recover, but we’ll see.”
