Hatters midfielder Andy Drury believes his side are getting back in their groove ahead of this afternoon’s League Two clash with Southend United at Kenilworth Road.

Town have gone five games unbeaten in the league, with three straight wins as Drury said: “We’re getting in our groove now. A lot of the boys are back as they were injured and we’ve still got a couple more to come back too.

“When they do, we will have a very strong squad. We’re on a good run and last year we went 29 games unbeaten or something like that, so hopefully we can get up there this season and it will stand us in good stead to get promoted.”

Meanwhile, the division’s player of the month Luke Wilkinson is anticipating another battle against a Shrimpers side who are fourth in the table.

He said: “It’s going to be another tough game. They’ll bring big support and hopefully we can go out and perform the way we’ve been performing and get the three points.”

Meanwhile, before he was ruled out with injury, Jake Howells was hoping his side could continue their good form and push on after Christmas as he added: “We’re on a good run at the moment. We’ve got to take each game as it comes and we know it’s not going to be easy on Saturday.

“It’s never easy in this league and Southend are a good side, but hopefully we go out there and perform as we know we can.

“It’s very tight in this league. If you can get on a run like we have you need to carry that on and keep picking up points and by Christmas, we’ll be there or thereabouts and you never know what will happen towards the end of the season.

“We’re such a fit group and we always work so hard in pre-season that we get stronger by each game and towards the end of the season that’s when we really kick-on.”
