Danny Hylton: Luton Town striker 'one of League Two's best'

Luton Town manager Nathan Jones has labelled striker Danny Hylton as one of League Two's best forwards.

The 27-year-old is back from suspension having scored eight goals in 12 league games since leaving Oxford, whom he helped win promotion last term.

"Even if he didn't start (Saturday's) game, to have him to come off the bench would be a positive," said Jones.

"For me, he's the one of the best in the league. I wouldn't swap him for anyone. In my eyes he's the best."

The Hatters travel to Notts County in fourth place, three points off the automatic promotion spots.

Four of their last five league games have finished 1-1, but Jones says how sides are setting up against them shows how teams are beginning to perceive his side.

"We haven't been lucky, we haven't been clinging onto a draw or clinging onto a lead and lost it," Jones told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"The good thing is we're disappointed when we draw against decent sides, and when sides come and play for a draw against us, that shows the reputation we're building."
