A tough task awaits the Hatters this afternoon over at the Kassam Stadium when they take on Oxford United.

It could be a case of Luton having to take any chances that come their way and Jack Marriott, if fit, could be that man.

Marriott didn`t last the course against Dagenham and Redbridge, in midweek, but it seems Nathan Jones took a chance in playing him.

Talking about his young striker, Nathan Jones had this to say about his striker, remarking,

‘If I’m honest, he probably shouldn’t have started.

‘Because he was carrying something and he didn’t look himself, he didn’t look sharp.

‘In that first half we had a number of opportunities where a fit Jack Marriott would have got shots off, but he just wasn’t really at it.

‘He didn’t do himself any favours, but he’s that type of player. He wants to play, he’s been brilliant for us and we want him to take the risk because he’s important to us with how he plays.’

So now we know!
