Luton have recalled attacker Josh Neufville from his loan spell at National League side Yeovil Town in time to join up with the squad for tomorrow night’s Championship play-off semi-final second leg at Huddersfield Town.

With injury doubts still persisting over top scorer Elijah Adebayo, Town are left with Cameron Jerome, Danny Hylton and Harry Cornick as their striking trio.

Jerome and Cornick began the 1-1 first leg clash at Kenilworth Road on Monday night, but with the quick turnaround, Luton boss Nathan Jones has called for reinforcements and brought the academy graduate back to Kenilworth Road.

Neufville, 21, returned to the Glovers in March for his second spell at Huish Park, following an impressive first stint last term when he scored five goals in 31 games until unfortunately suffering a serious ankle injury.

The forward, who was handed his Luton debut back in September 2018, going on to make four cup appearances, has played 11 times this term, with one goal, that an impressive strike during the 2-1 win over Stockport County last month.
