Brabin notices a change in Poku’s attitude

A CHANGE of attitude in Godfrey Poku could finally see him challenge for a place in Town’s first team, writes Mark Wood.

The 21-year-old combative midfielder scored a great goal in Luton Town reserves’ 3-3 draw at Oxford United on Wednesday and Brabin believes now is the time for Poku to make the most of his new-found maturity.

Brabin said: “Godfrey is starting to show what we know he is capable of.

“We sent him on loan to Southport, and I think it’s been a fantastic experience for him, so much so that Southport loved having him.

“It’s been well-documented they would love to have him back but he is certainly one that we’ve looked for, for the future.

“He’s developing the way we want him to develop.

“He’s come back here and probably been a bit frustrated now, which is a change in attitude if you like because Godfrey’s been in and around the place for a couple of years and never really expected to play.

“We’ve had a few chats with him and told him he’s got to start knuckling down now, stepping it up and show us what he can do day in, day out.

“If he can do more of that he will certainly be getting more chances in the first team.”
