Luton Town manager Paul Buckle says that he feels his players now have the necessary ‘nastiness’ and ‘horrible mentality’ to get back into the Football League.
Despite this, the boss was quick to add that the season, which starts at home on Saturday, would again be extremely tough and that they could expect no easy games.
He said: “Every game, starting with the opener against Gateshead this weekend, will be a big game because everybody punches above their weight against us.
“We’ve got to have the right mentality this season, I want players who will die for the club and fight and scrap for every ball.
“Teams are going to come here to try things but we need that horrible mentality to say no every time they come knocking.
“We have to bring a nastiness to the game so when sides come here they know there will be a Luton Town player in their face.
“I’m hell-bent on bringing success to this clubs and I will use every hour God gives me to do that. I’ve got out of this league before and I want to do it again, for the club, the players, the staff and the fans.
“The disappointment of Wembley still burns in the stomach, of course it does, but it’s time to put it right.
“Hopefully the fans will be enthused by the players who have joined the club and the mentality and work rate they have seen during pre-season.
“These players need to work hard and give everything for these fans, because if they don’t they’ll need to watch themselves.”
