Newell ponders changes

Luton Town manager Mike Newell has vowed to dip into the transfer market if the Hatters slip any deeper into Championship relegation trouble after producing a horror show in Saturday's 2-0 defeat by lowly Barnsley. A whimpering performance from Newell's men saw Town fall behind to Brian Howard's early goal before Martin Devaney's last-minute strike sealed it for the visitors. "It wasn't our day in any department. It's difficult to say why, but I don't think the injuries or the changes we were forced to make helped," said Newell. "If you look at the game as a whole, the second half we had most of the game, but just lacked that bit of fortune to get back into it. "I don't worry about things, I just get on with it and that's what I'll do. We'll try and get another cutting edge to replace (Rowan) Vine, whether it's someone here or by bringing someone in. "Just because Vine's gone and we didn't win our first home game after that doesn't mean we won't find that cutting edge. "I'm in the position where I'm looking for strong characters at the moment. I do believe we've got them here, but if we haven't I'll have to bring them in."
