The recovery of Tom Lockyer is a source of motivation for Luton, according to Thomas Kaminski.

Luton Town goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski has spoken about the impact of manager Rob Edwards following teammate Tom Lockyer’s cardiac arrest. Kaminski revealed that the squad has seen the “human side” of Edwards since the incident and that they are determined to win for their captain.

Lockyer collapsed during a game against Bournemouth earlier this month, which was subsequently abandoned. He is now recovering at home after having a device fitted to treat his heart condition. Since the incident, Luton have recorded back-to-back wins for the first time since their promotion to the Premier League.

Kaminski and the rest of the team have stayed in contact with Lockyer and have shown their support by wearing t-shirts with his name on during warm-ups before matches. Kaminski stated that the wins were dedicated to Lockyer, but the team is still focused on their battle to stay in the top flight.

The goalkeeper emphasized Lockyer’s importance to the team, stating that he is one of the main reasons why Luton is in the Premier League. Kaminski expressed hope that Lockyer will be able to return to the team if he receives the green light from medical experts.

Kaminski also praised Edwards for his handling of the incident and his ability to motivate the players. The manager has been open about wanting the team to embody Lockyer’s spirit. Kaminski noted that Edwards showed his emotions to the players, which had a positive impact on the team.

The goalkeeper, who joined Luton from Blackburn in the summer, has been in impressive form and is hoping to catch the attention of Belgium manager Domenico Tadesco ahead of next summer’s European Championship. Kaminski expressed his ambition to be part of the national team and believes that playing in the Premier League provides a good platform for him to achieve that goal.

Looking ahead to their upcoming match against Chelsea, Kaminski highlighted Luton’s improvement and their strong home form. He stated that playing at Kenilworth Road gives them an advantage, as the fans are behind them and opposing teams find it difficult to play against them. Kaminski believes that Luton can give Chelsea a difficult game and continue their positive run of form.

In conclusion, Kaminski’s comments reflect the unity and determination within the Luton squad following Lockyer’s cardiac arrest. The team is motivated to win for their captain and their recent performances have shown their resilience. With the support of their manager and the home crowd, Luton will be looking to continue their impressive form against Chelsea.
