Cherries signed defender Stacey from Luton Town in the summer for a fee of around 4million.

Skipper Francis told the Daily Echo: He's been great, Jack.

He's taken on board everything that the manager has thrown at him really. Pre-season he looked really fit, he's a strong runner and him and Smithy have been battling it out at right-back.

He certainly impressed in training and in pre-season. I'm pleased for him, along with some of the other young lads as well.

They've had that career where they've started in the lower leagues and then built their way up and that's great for confidence. It definitely gives you that hunger. It did for me and you also don't forget where you've come from. You've played in the lower leagues so to be in the Premier League, I'm sure he'll be chomping at the bit."

James Justin, signed from Luton in the summer also got on the scoreboard, with the home supporters

Justin said: "It was unbelievable to be clapped by the home fans after scoring against them, so I'm just thankful. Obviously it's a disappointing result for Luton, but I'm over the moon personally and it's a debut. I've always wanted to show everyone what I can do.

"I'm happy to get on the scoresheet and keep a clean sheet and if you look at our team, it's scary really because we've made loads of changes, but the intensity was still there."

Justin left Luton in the summer, signing a five-year-deal at the King Power Stadium having impressed last season, helping his side to Championship promotion and earning himself a spot in the League One team of the season.

Jones said; That was the sad part of the job for me, coming in when you've got two really dominant full-backs I saw Jack Stacey play on Friday and you see what he brings to the show, James Justin exactly the same.

"You come in and you haven't got those players available, which is disappointing, but I think what everyone needs to remember is what he did for the football club, what both of them did.

But obviously James is coming back, how luck would have it.

"I expect him to make his debut tonight for Leicester, so you'd think we will give him a warm reception and then make it as difficult as we can for him, so I look forward to seeing him. I am aware of what James Justin can do, he was regarded as possibly our best player here he hasn't played for Leicester yet, so it gives you an idea of the level."

With the club chasing a high Premier League finish this season, it is understandable they are willing to rotate their squad for a cup game against a lower division side.

Brendan Rodgers will give chances to several of his fringe players and youngsters.

Players who could feature in the game include Danny Ward, James Justin, Wes Morgan, Christian Fuchs and Demarai Gray.

These players are either not in the squad for most Premier League games, or often find themselves on the bench.

Bolton is on loan at Luton, where he has started the last two games in defence.

He said: I spoke to City and that's where the manager sees me, so I was hoping that I'd get a run out at right back (with Luton), and I'm really enjoying it.

I played there three times last pre-season with the first team, then Pep spoke to me and thought that's where I was going to be best, so I just took that advice on board, that's all I can do really, listen to him."

He's obviously a very smart man, I'd say the best coach in the world. He pulled me into his office, we're speaking, he thanked me for pre-season and then said that's where he thinks I'm going to be best.

So straight away, I said, 'no problem, that's where I'll play."

City progressed to the third round after beating Newcastle on penalties on Wednesday night, setting up a tie at Luton.

The League Cup is now in its third year with Thai energy drink Carabao as its title sponsor and that gives it greater significance to City, left-back Fuchs has said, with the club's owners King Power hailing from Bangkok.

We take it seriously," he said. We want to advance in the cup. It's a very important cup for us, especially because Carabao is Thai so it's special for our owners and we want to pay them back.

It's always the case, it's always one of our goals to advance in every single competition as far as possible as well as get good results in the Premier League. Wednesday was the first step and we're very happy with that.

When you win one (trophy), you want more. It's tough, there are so many great teams in the competition that you have to face, so we try to give our best and let's see where we end up."

The England U20 international enjoyed a loan spell in the second half of the campaign at the Town's then-League One rivals Wycombe Wanderers, making ten appearances for Gareth Ainsworth's team.

After signing on at Kenilworth Road yesterday afternoon, Bolton told lutontown.co.uk: "It was a tough game and obviously Luton played very well, so I know of the quality here from that game and I knew how rocking the stadium was, so I can't wait to get out there and play.

"I've been here and seen what the fans are like. I know how the players play, and I watched the game on Friday and the lads looked like they want to play football.

"That's what I want to do, so the manager didn't really have to persuade me that much.

"The back to back promotions, the full houses it's a club that's on the up. They've got big ambitions and so have I, so I think it goes hand-in-hand. I'm buzzing to be here. Luton is a huge club with a massive fanbase and I can't wait to get started."
