The pair were due to feature for Luton in a Final Third Development League clash with Gillingham at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday afternoon, but the match was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Still said: “Lawless would have played in the reserves on Tuesday but that was called off, (Luke) Guttridge would have played too.

“They’re probably a week away from the first team, and Pelly (Ruddock Mpanzu) should be back in training on Monday.

“Paul Benson is running now too, only at one pace, so we’ll follow this week through to the programme we’ve got.”
