Luton Town have enjoyed their 2021/22 campaign thus far, and whilst the numbers would suggest that they should secure a play-off spot, it is not mathematically confirmed as of yet.
The Hatters have managed to surpass all expectations to still be within the play-off conversation as things stand, with the club’s achievement being recognised within the EFL awards, with Nathan Jones winning the Manager of the Season in the Championship.
Luton have had to contend with several injuries to integral first-teamers throughout this campaign, with the club’s success a collective effort.
Providing his opinion on the club’s most improved player during this season, Luton Town fan pundit Dylan Bhundia said: “Most improved? I will go for Gabby Osho.
“Last season he was on loan at Yeovil and Rochdale in the National League and League One respectively, but he’s come in this year, and at the start of the year he struggled a bit, he was playing centre-back in a four, but he’s played in so many different positions, he’s played holding midfield, he’s played left wing-back, right wing-back, middle of a back three.

“(He’s) another one again where once he got a run of games and some rhythm, with a few injuries in our back three, he filled in so will in the middle of that back three and was putting in some unbelievable performances.
“The one that stands out in my head was Swansea away where he handled Michael Obafemi like anything.
“It is just a real shame that he’s got a season-ending injury and can’t feature for us in hopefully a play-off campaign.”
Osho has been tasked with playing in several different roles this season, with the 23-year-old stepping up to every challenge excellently.
At the start of the campaign, it appeared that the former Reading man could be converted from a central defender to a holding midfielder, however, he has proven to be a versatile option who can fill in wherever he is required, something that has been a massive boost for Jones in what has been a campaign full of injuries.
The versatile defender has now injured himself and will miss the rest of the campaign, and the play-offs, should they keep hold off their position.
And as Dylan says, it is a real shame as Osho deserves to be a part of this squad during this exciting period in the season.
