NEW:“Humble” and “terrific” Nakamba now the toast of Luton

IT looks like Marvelous Nakamba is enjoying his game once again.

The Zimbabwean midfielder has regained his mojo since the loan move from Aston Villa to English Championship side Luton Town at the end of January.

He has started the last seven Championship matches in the usual holding midfield role, and, during that time, Luton have conceded twice from open play.

His manager Rob Edwards has been bowled over, as he ran out of superlatives in an interview with Luton on Tuesday to describe the star player’s performances.

Edwards described Nakamba as a good lad.

“He walks around and he is so humble, so happy,” Edwards says.

Fourth-placed Luton Town host Bristol City in a Championship match Wednesday night hoping to maintain their recent good run.

Luton Town have 60 points, seven behind Sheffield United, who occupy second position.

The top two teams from the Championship automatically qualify for the Premier League, while number three to six will engage in a playoff to determine the third team that makes it into the top-flight.

The 29-year-old, who moved to Kenilworth Road from Villa in a deal that lasts until the end of the season, has been a vital cog in Luton Town’s decent run.

The Hatters are unbeaten in their last four matches, and their recent win came against second-placed Sheffield United.

“He’s such a good professional though, and I can see when we are having meetings, or going through set-pieces, whatever it might be, the level of detail,” Edwards told Luton Today.

“He’s asking questions, he’s picking up, you can really see his professionalism and why he’s played at the level he’s played at, and why he’s performing so well for us as well.

“He’s been terrific for us, and long may that continue as well.”

 Luton Town hosts Bristol City, who have one win in their last four league matches, hoping to close the gap between them and second-placed Sheffield United.
