Luton Town have been up and down since making their return to English football’s second tier, with the Hatters picking up two wins, one draw and three defeats so far this campaign, giving them a total points return of seven from a possible 18 at the time of writing.
Graeme Jones’ team recruited heavily following their promotion from League One, with the Bedfordshire based side bringing in 10 new players to Kenilworth Road, thus upping the competition for places amongst the existing squad.
With increased competition comes reduced game time for certain players in any squad, thus leading in some cases to players leaving on loan, Town let both Jake Jervis and Donervon Daniels leave temporarily to both Salford City and Doncaster Rovers respectively.
We took a look at TWO players who Luton Town should have also been loaned out during the transfer window…
The experienced one-time Czech Republic international goalkeeper is yet to have made an appearance for the Hatters so far this season, having been also used sparingly by Luton last season as well, making just seven appearances in all competitions.
A loan move to get get more regular game time would surely have been more beneficial for the 29 year-old, than sitting in the stands, with the keeper now coming towards the end of a playing career that has included almost 200 club appearances.
With Simon Sluga, James Shea and Harry Isted ahead of him in the pecking order, Stech may not get any kind of game time this term.
The second and last in our list is defensive midfielder Glen Rea, who has been an another absentee for the whole of the season so far for the Hatters, with the 25-year-old unlucky to have picked up a severe knee injury mid-way through Town’s League One campaign last season.
Having made 27 appearances in all competitions for the club last season, a loan move for the 25-year-old would of been beneficial for him to regain some fitness as he makes his return from injury, particularly with Luton’s midfield being well-stocked after the additions of experienced pair Ryan Tunnicliffe and Jacob Butterfield.
