Goalkeeper Dean Brill looks set for a Luton Town return after Carl Emberson admitted he'd be a good addition to the squad.
The stopper, who came through the ranks and made more than 80 appearances in six years, has been on trial back at his home town club since his release from League Two Barnet in May.
Brill played in last night's 2-0 win over St Albans City - his second in three pre-season matches - and with only development teenager Lewis Kidd on Luton's books as a back-up to regular number one Mark Tyler, there is a vacancy for a second senior stopper and, so far, Brill seems to fit the bill.
Emberson said: "From my point of view, I think you need to good goalkeepers that are experienced.
"Lewis needs a bit more playing time before he's going to be really ready. Playing for Luton Town comes with a bit of pressure.
"Expectation is high and Brilly knows that - he's played in League One and I think he's even played in the Championship.
"Brilly is a good addition and he'll make the squad stronger. That's what we've got to look for.
"You've always got to be on your toes. Wherever I played in successful teams that won promotion, we had two goalkeepers who were able to step in and you wouldn't be wondering if they were ready. You knew they were and that's the key."
First team development coach Emberson, himself a former Hatters goalie, returned to the club earlier this month reunite with manager Paul Buckle whom he'd worked under at Bristol Rovers last year.
He made over 50 appearance for the Kenilworth Road outfit between 2001 and 2003 and was in the first team when a young Brill emerged from the youth ranks.
The same year Emberton left, the Luton-born keeper made his full league debut - coincidentally against tomorrow night's pre-season opponents Wycombe Wanderers.
Emberson said: "He's doing really well. When I played here he was a schoolboy and trained [with the first team] for a couple of days.
"He's got a great temprament, he's a good talker.
"He kept a clean sheet [at St Ablans] and gave a good account of himself in his last two games, so I'm really happy with him."
