Luton Town man clearly delighted after getting off the mark for his new club

Published

Luton Town left it late last night to salvage a point from their game against Millwall last night, as a late strike from substitute Callum McManaman secured a share of the spoils for the Hatters at Kenilworth Road, with the Bedfordshire based club now sitting in 17th position. 

The goal has been a welcome boost for McManaman, with the former West Brom man having so far failed to set the world alight since arriving at the club on a free transfer this summer from Wigan Athletic.

And the player’s delight was there for all to see earlier today, as the 28 year-old posted a tweet expressing his delight at netting the late equaliser against the Lions last night:

McManaman’s stats so far this season, as detailed by WhoScored.com, suggest that this is a goal the player really needed, with the ex-Blackpool loanee having averaged 1.2 shots, 0.6 dribbles and 0.2 key passes per game this season making for grim reading.

However, it should be noted that the experienced winger has been deployed in several different positions by Town boss Graeme Jones, with the natural wide player having operated in unfamiliar roles such as centre forward and as an attacking midfielder in the number ten position behind the strikers.

The Verdict 

This goal will do McManaman the world of good, with the former Wigan man having so far failed to prove his worth to his manager.

The best thing he can do now is look to build upon this goal by nailing down a regular position within the Luton starting eleven, particularly with Jones utilising him in two different roles so far, it shows that his versatility is a valuable asset to his manager’s plans.

Lastly, with Luton now facing a tight schedule of four games in 23 days, which includes ties against Fulham and Derby County, Jones will surely be looking to utilise the full depth of his squad to cope with the increased run of fixtures as we head towards the winter period of the season, thus gifting McManaman more chances to impress.
