Town defender Tom Lockyer has suffered a blow in his bid to return to the first team, according to assistant boss Mick Harford.

The 26-year-old suffered an ankle injury during the 2-0 defeat to Cardiff last month, ruling him out of Luton's next eight games.

Although he made the substitutes bench for the 1-0 win at Preston North End and was called up by Wales for their three matches, Lockyer pulled out of the squad ahead of the international break.

Speaking to the press this afternoon about whether he will make the games with Derby County and Barnsley on Good Friday and Easter Month, Harford said: "Tom has had a little set-back with his injury so he didn’t go away with the Wales squad.

"It is touch and go for the Easter period but we’re really disappointed for Tom because we believe he is a big part of our squad and the Welsh squad.

"He has missed out on two or three games for the Welsh team so we monitor that one over the next few days."

When asked for on fellow defenders Sonny Bradley and Dan Potts, Harford added: "Sonny is back on the grass now training but it is maybe a bit too early for Sonny this game.

"Dan has been around the squad and he is back training."
