Rob Edwards sets challenge for Luton Town squad ahead of Millwall

Luton Town manager Rob Edwards has urged his side not to become ‘sloppy’ against Millwall following their 2-0 derby day win over Watford last weekend.

Edwards’ side are fourth in the table and six points ahead of the Lions, who are fifth and on 61 points.

Millwall are four points clear of seventh-placed Norwich City.

The game between the two sides chasing promotion to the Premier League is sold out.

Millwall picked up a point against Luton at Kenilworth Road in February but led a two-goal lead slip and were forced to settle for a draw.

Luton are six points off the Championship top two.

“They don’t come more difficult than Millwall away,” said Edwards.

“Their home form has been strong. But they have been strong throughout the season – home or away.

“They’re a tough nut to crack and are well coached with individual players as well. 

“It’s an extremely difficult game, but one we’re looking forward to as well. The lads have risen to lots of challenges, and some of our best performances have been in those big games.

“The players dealt with [last Saturday against Watford] really well, and it will probably feel similar tomorrow. 

“Immdeilty after the game [against Watford] when you expect the dressing room to be full of elation and celebration, there are one or two people who said: ‘Lads, it’s great, but we can be better than that.’

“That shows the standards this group has got and the expectations they have of each other. 

“We don’t want to have a big game, get a performance and a win, and then go sloppy – it can’t be that.

“The Championship – it doesn’t matter who you’re playing – won’t allow you to drop your levels.”
