Luton Town transfer news: Hatters new boy set for League Two loan, Ex-Swansea flop joins Ligue 1 champions

Luton Town boss Nathan Jones has spoken on the toughness of this weekend’s clash with Burnley.

The Hatters picked up their first point against Birmingham City in last weekend’s opener, while the Clarets were victorious in what was a dominating victory over Huddersfield Town.

Vincent Kompany’s side were relegated from the Premier League last season but have brought in a number of talented players to improve their ranks and will be desperate for a swift return to the top tier.

Speaking to the club, Jones said: “It’s a Championship game. There is no easy game so it will be a real test, but a really good test.

“We like to get tested at this football club because we’ve come through a lot of tests throughout our time here and this is another one. It’s going to be massively difficult but it’s going to be difficult for Burnley as well.”
