Kevin Gallen Joins Luton on Loan - Linking up with Mick Harford et al
- Luton Official Site - GALLEN SIGNS FOR A MONTH
- Just as the Hatters injury crisis looked to be calming down with the long awaited returns of Kevin Nicholls, Kevin Watson, Garreth O'Connor, Sol Davis and Drew Talbot last Saturday against Altrincham, the squad took a further blow this week as Tom Craddock picked up a groin injury putting him out of contention for tomorrow's match, just days after signing for a further month.
- However Town boss Mick Harford has acted quickly by bringing in former QPR front man Kevin Gallen on a one month loan. Gallen made his debut for QPR in 1994 after his impressive form for QPR's youth team, scoring 153 goals in 110 games and in the process breaking Jimmy Greaves all time goalscoring record at that level. Gallen made the move away from Loftus Road and had spells at Huddersfield and Barnsley, but returned to his boyhood club in 2001 where he enjoyed a successful period as club captain, scoring 55 goals over 5 seasons.
- Mick Harford was full of praise for Gallen; "Kevin is a very clever footballer and will bring a wealth of experience to our forward line. Losing Tom so soon after we managed to extend his loan was a blow, but I wanted to act quickly and bring in some cover as Drew (Talbot) is lacking a bit of match sharpness, whereas Kevin has been involved with his club all season".
Kevin will wear the squad number 32 during his stay at Kenilworth Road. Luton

MK Dons striker Kevin Gallen has today (Friday) joined Luton Town on loan.
Gallen heads to Kenilworth Road to get some first team football with the League 2 side, and will remain with the Hatters until after their home game with Lincoln City on December 28.
Now in his second season with the Dons, Kevin has made eight appearances for the first team this term, scoring crucially in the 1-0 win over Tranmere Rovers on November 1.
He told mkdons.com: "It will be good to go there and get some regular football. The situation at Luton means every game is like a cup final for them and that's a good environment to step in to.
"Everyone there is trying to pull in the same direction for the good of the club so hopefully I can go there and help do the same."
Gallen joined the Dons from Queens Park Rangers in July 2007 and has scored 10 goals in 38 appearances since moving to stadiummk.
Subject to the completion of his registration, he'll be at Luton boss Mick Harford's disposal for Saturday's home game against Dagenham and Redbridge. MK Dons

Skysports/Juha Pal - Buzsaky - I will be back
Hungarian midfielder receives support from Gera
- Queens Park Rangers midfielder Akos Buzsaky is confident he can recover from the knee injury which has ruled him out for the rest of the season.
Buzsaky damaged his anterior cruciate ligament in Tuesday's Carling Cup defeat at Manchester United and was replaced after 33 minutes.
The Hungary international admits he did not believe he had suffered such a serious injury, but the schemer has vowed to bounce back.
"My knee never had a problem before," Buzsaky told samsungsport. "I didn't think this was a serious injury.
"It was twisted a bit, but I came off the pitch immediately and didn't force my play. But next morning I could hardly move it.
"I won't give up. I don't think this injury will break my career."
Gera sympathy
Meanwhile, Buzsaky has received the support of compatriot Zoltan Gera, who plays for QPR's local rivals Fulham.
Gera said: "I'm very sorry because he was just back after his long injury, so it's hard to deal with a situation like this.
"On Sunday, he watched our game against Newcastle and after the final whistle we went out together to eat something.
"He was very hopeful and said that he's optimistic and hoped that his old injury wouldn't affect his performance.
"I hope that he'll recover faster than is expected and we can play together in the national team and face each other in England." Skysports
