JONES’S DE­FEN­SIVE CHANGE IS THE KEY...

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

TO THREE or not to three, that is the ques­tion for Lu­ton Town at the back.

The an­swer, from now on, should be the for­mer af­ter boss Nathan Jones went with a trio of cen­tre-backs that meant he ditched the much-ma­ligned di­a­mond for­ma­tion in mid­field, played wing­backs and, as a re­sult, over­ran a Notts County side with one mind on the beach.

As it is, only a math­e­mat­i­cal mir­a­cle will now deny Town a place in the play-offs – a for­mat in which they have never tri­umphed. But if the Hat­ters had played like this at home more of­ten this sea­son they would have com­fort­ably sealed au­to­matic pro­mo­tion.

They came from be­hind at home, which so of­ten has been their Achilles heel at Ke­nil­worth Road this term, with goal hero Pelly-Rud­dock Mpanzu im­mense in mid­field, while Danny Hyl­ton should have made the score­line more em­phatic.

In­stead, more an­noy­ingly. he got an­other dis­ci­plinary black mark against his name
