Luton boss Graeme Jones has stated that Izzy Brown has to play if the Hatters are to stay in the Championship this season.
Brown limped out of the defeat to Nottingham Forest on Saturday after just 33 minutes of the fixtures.
As the 22-year-old walked off the pitch he was holding his hamstring, and that will be a concern for Jones and his side.
The on-loan Chelsea man has suffered a number of injuries in his career despite being so young, and he’ll be hoping that it’s nothing serious especially after getting back into the rhythm of playing a number of games under Jones at the Hatters.
Jones has expressed that Brown is his team’s most creative player and he has to play if Luton are going to stay in the division.
Speaking to Dunstable Today, Jones said: “Izzy’s our most creative player and he has to play if we’re going to stay in the league. He has to play, it’s as simple as that.”
Is Izzy Brown Luton's best player?
Some quite strong words from Jones about the potential injury, and it shows how highly he rates Brown and how crucial he is for how Luton want to play and be successful.
Brown is starting to get his creative spark back, something he showed a number of times whilst at Huddersfield during the Terriers’ promotion season under David Wagner.
If he can continue to perform, and not get injured in a serious manner, then there’s no reason why he can’t be key in Luton staying this division. His creativity will be crucial for the Hatters, especially in tightly contested fixtures.
