Hatters midfielder Andy Drury missed out on the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month award for January to Tranmere Rovers striker Rory Donnelly.

The on-loan Swansea City forward netted three goals to help his side move away from the relegation zone.

Drury had been nominated after opening his account for the campaign against Plymouth Argyle and then scoring in the 3-2 win over Cambridge United on Saturday.

Town boss John Still said: “His form’s been good this year, but I said to him over the last few weeks, ‘what’s the one thing missing from your game? Goals.’

“You haven’t got to be Brain of Britain to see that. If he adds goals to his game, his performances would be faultless.

“It was the one thing that Gutts (Luke Guttridge) gave us that perhaps Dukes hasn’t given us, goals.

“He gave us performances but when you play in that loose position, you do have to find goals and I think he’s got goals in him.”
