Former Plymouth Argyle defender Sonny Bradley will have no problem celebrating a goal if he manages to score against the Pilgrims this afternoon.
Bradley made the switch from Home Park to Kenilworth Road in the summer, seemingly backing the right horse as the Hatters have become promotion candidates. His former side has slumped into the bottom four and the pressure is being ramped up on manager Derek Adams.
There’s been a trend towards former players not celebrating goals, but Bradley told Luton Today that he would happily celebrate if he bagged the winner.
“I have had chances this season, I have had a couple cleared off the line, it’s just the way it goes sometimes and I will be looking for my first one on Saturday,” said the 26-year old.
“I have got nothing but respect for the football club still. The fans are a key part and they helped me a lot. I would never do anything in front of them, but if I did score, I would definitely celebrate with my home fans.”
Luton are hoping to bag the win to keep themselves in the hunt for a top six finish, whilst the ailing Pilgrims are four points adrift of safety and risk being isolated in the bottom two if they fail to pick up a point.
Bradley’s side could heap pressure on Derek Adams, whose relationship with the Pilgrims’ fans has become fractious.
Bradley should celebrate if he scores, he’s a Luton player now and failing to celebrate a goal shows a certain disrespect to a current employer.
He’s unlikely to score, but if he keeps Freddie Lapado quiet then he’s done the job he’s paid to do. Leave the goals to Elliott Lee, he’s on fire right now.
