Luton Town fans have begged on-loan Zimbabwean international, Marvelous Nakamba, to stay at the club when his loan spell ends.
They thronged to his Twitter page following the Hatters’ victory over Swansea on Saturday during which the Aston Villa midfielder got another 90 minutes of game time.
After the match, Nakamba pointed to what he felt was an ‘important’ victory at Kenilworth Road on Saturday, as Luton saw off Swansea City 1-0.
Nakamba, who was getting his third successive 90 minutes for Town, and fourth in six outings, played a pivotal role in the triumph, finishing at top of the successful tackle count, with six to his name.
It means he has the highest average per game among the Luton squad now, with 3.4, despite having only signed in January.
The Zimbabwean international also used the ball tidily as well, with an 85.2% passing accuracy, although his shooting did let him down, firing one effort so far over the bar in the second period that it landed on the Kenny End roof, Luton Today reported.
However, writing on Twitter about the game, Nakamba said: “Important home win today.”
Reacting to the tweet, Luton Town many fans begged Nakamba to stay.
