The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Sam Hawthorn

LU­TON cen­tre-back Johnny Mullins is well aware of the bat­tle he faces to re­gain his place in the side af­ter serv­ing a fourgame sus­pen­sion.

Mullins’ sec­ond red card of the sea­son came against Wy­combe and means he will have to force his way past Alan Shee­han to earn a spot along­side club cap­tain Scott Cuth­bert.

The 31-year-old for­mer Ox­ford United man said: “It came at the wrong time. Things hap­pen in foot­ball and I had to take my medicine – it was a very frus­trat­ing time.”

Now he has served his ban, Mullins is fully fo­cused on get­ting back.

“All I can do now I’m back and in con­tention is to keep work­ing hard in train­ing and, hope­fully, I can get back in and stay in,” added Mullins.

“Com­pe­ti­tion for places is fierce. You know if you come out of the team for one game it could be hard, let alone four, so that is just part and par­cel of foot­ball.

“I have had to take it and now I’m look­ing to kick on.”
