Luton will ‘attack the Championship’ next season – Rob Edwards

Hatters boss says experiences will help them in quest for return to top flight

Premier League

Rob Edwards says Luton will attack the Championship next season in a bid to make a swift return to the Premier League.

The Hatters boss says the experience of their campaign in the top flight will stand them in good stead and they have ‘changed and evolved so much,’ despite having a ‘thin’ squad compared to many sides.

Edwards told BBC Sport: “We are a special club. We have got unique support – we have had that all season long.

“We have given our best this year and ultimately we have just come up short, I know that. I understand why we were the favourites to go down and, ultimately, people were right.”

Edwards claimed his players had given everything all season long, adding: “We have scored a lot of goals this year. We have been good to watch. We have been involved in loads of great games, but we have conceded too many.

“That balance is something that we have got to try to address and we know where we need to keep improving.

“There is a lot of good stuff we can take away to attack the Championship next season. We work hard, we give absolutely everything, we just have to be us – go and be Luton.”
