Luton’s former Millwall midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe has been urged to play his own game when the sides meet at Kenilworth Road on Wednesday night.

Tunnicliffe joined Luton in the summer after being released after over 50 league appearances in two seasons at The Den.

Hatter’s boss Greame Jones sang his midfielder’s praises ahead of the fixture, offering advice on what could be an emotional game for the former Manchester United trainee.

“There’s a message for Ryan, he doesn’t have to show any emotion in this game,” he said.

“He has to go about his business in the same way he has done for the previous games and he will be absolutely fine.”

Tunnicliffe has been an ever present for Jones in Luton’s return to the Championship.

“He’s been a very good signing, really, really happy with him.

“He has had to change positions, he has had to show his game intelligence and understanding, which is far better than I ever give him credit for.

“So I really like where he is.”

Luton have overcome a sticky start to their season to register three wins in their previous five games, most recently a 2-1 win over Blackburn on Saturday.

The win puts them on ten points and lifts them to 17th, one place above Millwall after their 1-1 draw with Huddersfield at the weekend.

Jones however says the impressive win at Ewood Park will have little bearing on the Lions visit on Wednesday.

“It guarantees you nothing for Wednesday night, absolutely nothing, you start again – that’s the modern game, we’ve got a different style to plan for in Millwall.

“It will be a totally different environment at home, it’s a night game, so we have to be ready for whatever comes our way, that’s the most important quality in football now.

“You need to be adaptable, you need to be flexible, so just look forward.”
