`Assured’ – Stoke City reject playing his part in Luton Town revival



Luton will line up with a familiar face in tow for Stoke City fans at Kenilworth Road tomorrow.

Cameron Carter-Vickers played 15 times for Stoke during his loan spell from Tottenham and has now featured five times since joining Luton on loan last month.

He is due to line up in central defence against City tomorrow and clearly takes credit for Luton’s recent revival.

“Finally having everyone available to them, and most importantly match-fit, has proved a real bonus,” says Mike Simmonds, sports editor of Luton News, “as now manager Graeme Jones has options and a squad that looks like it belongs at this level.

“Glen Rea returning in the holding role has been a huge boost as well, plus the arrival of former Stoke loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers, as he has looked assured in the centre of defence, with another loan acquisition Izzy Brown back from his hamstring injury too.

“Conceding far less goals is another plus, with Luton keeping two clean sheets in a row, and just an all-round belief that they can now win games at this level, no matter what opposition they’re facing.”

Luton remain bottom of the Championship, but he believes that deep down they now believe they can save themselves.

“After beating Brentford, who were up there with Leeds as the best team to visit Kenilworth Road this term, in the manner that they did on Tuesday night, then there is a real sense of belief amongst players and supporters that Town could do it.

“They need to win pretty much all their home games though, as the other sides at the bottom are starting to hit form as well, which makes this weekend absolutely crucial.”

As for the Luton man to watch, he adds: “Harry Cornick, if he can repeat his heroics from Tuesday night, would be one of the main dangermen for Town.

“Plus Chelsea loan signing Izzy Brown, as long as he recovers from a bout of tonsillitis, can definitely cause problems. Leading scorer James Collins is into double figures for the season as well.”
