Rob Edwards proud to lead Luton as Premier League chapter begins | beIN  SPORTS

Hatters boss Rob Edwards is hoping that defender Mads Andersen hasn’t added to his already lengthening injury list after going off in the 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The 25-year-old had been recalled to the starting line-up at the weekend for the first time since Luton’s 1-0 defeat at Fulham last month, and got through the first half with his and Town’s clean sheet still intact, as the visitors forwards showed some real wastefulness in front of goal, keeper Thomas Kaminski also making two terrific saves.

Shortly afterwards, Andersen went down requiring treatment, but after failing to recover, it meant Teden Mengi had to replace the Danish centre half for the final half an hour which saw Town push for an equaliser only to come up just short.

With Amari’i Bell already missing due to a hamstring injury, and Luton yet to see Gabe Osho and Dan Potts this term either, Edwards is hoping that his summer signing from Barnsley isn’t out for too long, with just Tom Lockyer and Reece Burke as recognised central defenders.

He said: “I’ll have to see how he is, I think he was holding his hamstring again, so it’s another one for us to look at.
