Luton boss Rob Edwards believes returning winger Fred Onyedinma could now have a ‘key role’ to play in Town’s attempts to stay in the Premier League this term after he was a surprise inclusion for the Hatters’ match-day squad during the 2-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The 26-year-old moved to Kenilworth Road from Wycombe Wanderers in the summer of 2021, going on to play 53 times in all competitions, scoring three goals, although a number of persistent injuries meant just 22 of those outings came from the start. Coming on as a

substitute in the Championship play-off final victory over Coventry City in May, Onyedinma was then sent to the second tier once more in July, joining Rotherham United on loan, where he made 19 appearances, scoring twice,

before heading back to Bedfordshire after another injury setback, meaning he hadn’t featured anywhere since a 4-1 defeat to Hull City on November 28
