Luton boss Nathan Jones has insisted there is still plenty for his side to play for this term despite being safe from relegation and unable to feature in the end of season play-offs.

The Hatters sat out today’s round of Championship fixtures as they head to Bristol City tomorrow, dropping a place in the table to 13th after Stoke City drew 1-1 with Nottingham Forest.

Town are level on points with the Potters though, as a win at Ashton Gate would take Jones' team up to 11th and honing in on the top 10 spot that the manager has set his sights on.

Speaking about the run-in, he said: “People say you’ve got nothing to play for, we’ve got loads to play.

“We’ve got 12 more points to play for and we’d like to get 12.

"If we get 12 it means we’re in a wonderful, wonderful position and gives us a nice platform to move forward.

“We’ve got four games, two home, two away, we’ve taken advantage of our home games here now, that’s unbeaten in three, seven points in the last nine which we would have taken and we’re in a real good position.

“It’s a tough, tough game against Bristol CIty who have been at this level for a long time, but we’re not fearing anyone now.

“Whoever we had to go to, if we had to go to Norwich on the weekend we’d have zero fear.

"We’d have respect but no fear, so we’re in a decent place, but we have to keep backing that up and keep going because there’s a lot at stake that in-house we know about.”
