Luton Town boss Graeme Jones has demanded to see some ‘more fight’ from his team, as they travel to Millwall in the Championship today.
The Hatters go into the game at The Den this afternoon having won just two of their last 13 league games, losing ten of them.
They suffered a 3-0 defeat at Ashton Gate which gave Bristol City their first win in four last time out and it means that Luton haven’t won away since beating Blackburn 2-1 at Ewood Park in September.
Jones’ side haven’t even taken a point on the road since then and find themselves in 23rd going into today’s game – level on points with Stoke City sitting a place above the drop zone.
Speaking to Dunstable Today, Jones gave his verdict on the Millwall clash, and on his side’s dismal away form:
“Nobody is going to help us, nobody is going to feel sorry for us, we have a big game against Millwall, and we will fight our corner more than ever there. We haven’t won away from home since beating Blackburn, and we have to change that.”
With Barnsley and Stoke picking up slightly more points under new managers, it’s sunk Luton into the bottom-three and they face a real battle to stay in the second-tier.
“I spoke to the lads after the Bristol City game, and we had a long, long, honest conversation. Maybe we are a bit short at times at the moment, but we do have an honest group of players.

“So we will have to assess things, but it’s not good enough and I am not happy with it.”
A win for Luton today would lift them out of the relegation zone depending on other results, but they face Gary Rowett’s Millwall who’ve lost just twice since he took charge back in October.
Luton are a plucky team but right now, their form will see them back into the third-tier.
Every game is a chance to turn their season around and they have another at Millwall today. But if The Den wasn’t hard enough to go to already, the Lions are looking good under Rowett and they themselves will be gunning for all three points against a weak Luton side.
It’s down to the Hatters players to stand up and prove people wrong.
