Luton Town have so far endured a mixed start to their Championship campaign, with the Hatters plying their trade in English football’s second division for the first time since 2006/2007 season, they have so far picked up seven points from a possible 18 in their first six league games.
It is fair to say that there are a few unsung heroes within the Hatters’ ranks who don’t get the credit they deserve.
Here, we take a closer look at the players that fall into that category and give them a share of the spotlight that is perhaps long overdue for the work they have done with the club so far…
One unsung hero for the Hatters this season has been all-action midfielder Andrew Shinnie who has contributed an average of 2.2 key passes per game, more than any other player in Luton’s squad according to WhoScored.com.
Whilst contributing in passing gradients, Shinnie has also chipped in with his fair share of defensive work this season, with the midfielder averaging 1.8 tackles per game.
Matty Pearson has been solid in defence for Luton so far this season, with the defender having completed the most clearances out of the entire squad, averaging 5.3 per game this season for the Hatters.
Whilst in addition to this, Pearson has also recorded the second-highest amount of interceptions per game in the squad with an average of 1.2, showing his strong suitability for the role of sweeper in the back four alongside Sonny Bradley.
Last but not least is striker Harry Cornick, who has put in a lot of hard work for Luton this season up front, regularly running the channels to create space for his strike partner James Collins, Cornick has put in the hard yards for his side, whilst contributing two goals and one assist in the process, showing his creative value to the side.
