NATH KEEN TO FIELD ‘CALM’ AL

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

NATHAN Jones has made main­tain­ing the fit­ness of vet­eran mid­fielder Alan McCor­mack a top pri­or­ity.

Af­ter join­ing Lu­ton from Brent­ford in the sum­mer, 33-year-old McCor­mack has im­pressed in the Hat­ters’ en­gine room, de­spite an in­jury-rav­aged cam­paign for the Bees last year.

“We’ve got to make sure we get games out of him be­cause he’s ex­cel­lent in that role,” Jones said.

“That’s why we brought him here.

“He gives us that ex­pe­ri­ence, that calm­ness and that qual­ity and when he presses, he presses prop­erly, he wins the ball, and he can also play.”
