Despite a change of management at Luton Town, Sunderland manager Jack Ross will not be changing his side’s preparations for this weekend’s League One match against the Hatters, according to The Chronicle.
Luton go into the match under interim boss Mick Hartford, following Nathan Jones’ departure to take over at Stoke City, following the sacking of Gary Rowett.
Ross believes that there will not be too many changes to the way Luton play under Hartford and has no intention of changing his side’s preparation for the match.
So is Ross right to say Nathan Jones leaving doesn’t change a huge amount for the Hatters?
“No, of course it changes them.
“He’s their manager. He sets them up, motivates them in game and gives them their half time team talk.
“If he’s not there, everything changes. To think otherwise is naïve.”
“In terms of Saturday and the short-term, I tend to agree, but long-term this could change everything for Luton.
“They were settled and heading in the right direction, but a change in management is always a stumbling block.
“The right man has to be appointed.”
“I don’t think it changes too much; processes would have been in place before the departure of Nathan Jones.
“And they would have been followed to the tee moving forward into the build-up for this weekend’s clash with Sunderland.
“The only difference will be the absence of three former managerial members.”
