Still Is Old School - Pack

Marlon Pack feels Luton Town will adopt an ‘old school’ approach under his former manager John Still tonight (7.45pm).

The midfielder played under the Hatters’ boss in a three-month loan spell for Dagenham & Redbridge in 2010.

Pack admires the character Still demands from his players and is certain the 65-year-old will run his side in the same manner as he did with the Daggers five years ago and make it a difficult match for City.

He told Bristol City Player HD: “I know the ethos he puts through to his players and knowing the guy he is I’m pretty sure that hasn’t changed.

“He’s one from the old school and it works for him. He’s a lovely man and he’s got great football knowledge - his methods won’t change much but players like to play under him.

“He’s brought in some good players from the higher leagues so it’s going to be a good test.”

Pack made his debut in the Sky Bet Championship in City’s 2-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

The 24-year-old was allowed a lot more time on the ball in comparison to League One and believes it will be similar to last season when he goes up against Luton.

“I don’t think we’ll have as much time on the ball that’s for sure,” he said.

“It’s going to be a tough night for us and we’ve got to make sure we’re ready for it because things won’t come easy for us. We’ve got to work hard and make sure we battle with them, make sure we’re good with the ball and make sure we create those chances to win the game.

“We showed last year the more we win games the more positive the morale is around the camp so any chance to win a football match is an opportunity you can’t give up."
