Having put in some excellent EPL performances this term, they will be hoping that the setback suffered by Tom Lockyer doesn’t impact them too much. 

Concerning Scenes 

The audible hush around the Vitality Stadium when Tom Lockyer fell to the ground in the second half against Bournemouth will live long with all those who witnessed it. 
With the score locked at 1-1 and both sides pushing for a winner, the sight of Lockyer crashing to the ground – with nobody around him was a hugely concerning one. 
As players from both sides and all the fans in the stadium rallied around in support of Lockyer, the news that he was stable and responsive when leaving the stadium was welcomed by all. 
Worrying times for Lockyer 

Like so many of his team mates at Kenilworth Road this season, Tom Lockyer has been lauded for his performances in the Premier League. 
However, with this latest health issue, coming just over 6 months from his collapse on the field in the playoff final against Coventry City, question marks are present as to whether it is safe for the Welsh international to keep playing. 
First and foremost, for Lockyer however is a focus on improving his health, regardless of whether that enables him to play football again. 
What next for Luton Town? 

Despite being hugely unfancied at the start of the season by many EPL betting apps, Luton Town have been one of the stories of the campaign so far. 
Staying in the top flight may prove to be a bridge too far for the Hatters but they are punching above their weight under the stewardship of Rob Edwards. 
The loss of Lockyer will of course have a huge impact on the Welshman personally, as it will for Luton as a club but the priority at this stage is for Tom Lockyer to continue with his steps towards recovery.
