Luton Town will continue to have goalkeeper Matt Ingram on emergency loan at Kenilworth Road for the play-offs.

The 28-year-old goalkeeper joined on an emergency loan from Hull City for the final two games of the season, playing against Fulham and Reading in the final two games of the season.

The Hatters had entered the market to cover the loss of James Shea, who suffered a serious injury during Luton’s match against Chelsea in the FA Cup.

Now, the goalkeeper will remain with Luton for the play-off games, starting with tomorrow’s (13/05) match against Huddersfield Town at Kenilworth Road in the first leg of the play-offs.

Ingram told the official Luton Town website of the eventful circumstances that saw him join the Hatters.

He said, “I was looking forward to my summer really. But then this came about, and it was too good an opportunity to turn down.  

“We (Hull) played Bristol City on the Saturday and Luton had Fulham on Monday on TV. I woke up on Sunday morning to a million missed calls from Hull, and then the gaffer at Luton and Kev Pilkington, the goalie coach, called me and it was all sorted Sunday morning.

“I then had to go and train Sunday afternoon, travel and then play Fulham on Monday – which we all know was eventful!” 

Ingram, who confirmed his manager’s previous comments that he cancelled his honeymoon in the Maldives to take part in the play-offs, is the 4th goalkeeper to play for the Hatters this season, alongside Shea, Harry Isted, Jed Steer and the departed Simon Sluga.

The goalkeeper had previously made 29 appearances for Hull City in the Championship during the regular season.
