CHRISTMAS has come early for Marvelous Nakamba and his Luton Town teammates and, after their strong performances in their last two games, one can understand why they were in such a good mood.
The Hatters might have lost both games against Arsenal and Manchester City but they are getting a lot of credit for the manner they fought in both games.
They conceded a last-minute goal against the Gunners, after having taken a 3-1 lead, before champions City overhauled a first-half deficit to beat the Hatters.
Their impressive displays probably explain why the Luton Town players were in a good mood at the club’s Christmas dinner.
They were joined by the academy players in the Eric Morecambe for the dinner.
Nakamba is positive the Hatters will do well.
“It’s (City loss) difficult to take, unfortunately it was similar against Arsenal, but the positive thing I think, to go toe-to-toe with one of the best teams in the world, it has to give us huge encouragement and positive thinking to take into our next game.
“As a club, as players, we just have to believe more and keep on encouraging each other especially here at home, with our fans behind us, we just have to believe more. I think the confidence is still there.
“When you perform like this at home, the confidence has to be there in each and every one inside the club.
“It’s always good to play against the best. I have played against the best before in the Champions League, so I know of the quality, but to go toe-to-toe with them, this is what we wanted for the club, to be in the Premier League.
“Personally I still believe, I’m a believer and hopefully soon we can get some results.” – Sports Reporter/Luton Today.
