The summer signing from Northampton Town has been one of Luton’s most influential players this term, scoring nine goals, but was carried off in the 3-0 win over Alfreton recently.

Speaking to the press this afternoon, Still said: “I’m not sure that he’ll be available for this season. As things stand, he’s on a course of injections.

“Although we’ve got 10 games to go, we’ve only got about five weeks until the season ends, so maybe not.”

Although Guttridge, Jonathan Smith and Danny Fitzsimons will all miss this weekend’s visit of Chester City, Still confirmed he had a clean bill of health for the rest of the squad.

He added: “I think everyone was okay (from Monday night).

“Macca (Steve McNulty) had a knock, but I think he’ll be fine, so touch wood, we’re all okay.”
