Speaking ahead of the big match, Hatters boss Nathan Jones spoke about his decision not to bring in any players on loan in the last transfer window, and said: “We take a loan if they 'Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall' us, you’ve got a new name for that now.
“In terms of not improve us, but if they Kiernan us then we’ll take a loan, and that’s basically how we go about things.
“If they don’t then we don’t need numbers as we’ve got wonderful players, we’ve got people here now who are chomping at the bit.
“I’ve got Dion Pereira here who I’m really excited about and we could have taken young ones in that position, but then Dion would never flourish and I want that boy to flourish as I see something in him.”
He added: "We’re not reluctant to use it but the ones we bring in have to improve us considerably. The restrictions we have on that is that to improve our squad, because we think we recruit very well, so to bring someone better on loan takes a hell of a calibre of player to come in.
“They are usually on considerably more money than our budget allows, and also not everyone sees Luton as the best loan option. Those who are serious about their football, want to develop, want to get better, want to be involved in something, they do that. Some don’t. We believe categorically that we do good work here.”
