Luton defender Dan Potts says they are now a side to be feared after putting a poor start in League Two behind them.
After a winless first five league matches, John Still's side are now 10th after five wins from six.
"The one person that wasn't worried was the manager. At the time you doubted with the way it was going.
"But it's now turned on it's head massively. I don't think anyone would want to be play us at the moment," Potts told BBC Three Counties Radio.
The 21-year-old has struggled with injury so far this season, only appearing in two cup matches, including Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat by Gillingham.
The game provided manager Still with the chance to give a chance to Potts and fellow defenders Magnus Okuonghae and Mark O'Brien, who have also struggled with injuries.
"It's been frustrating," said the former West Ham man ahead of Saturday's visit of York City. "The injury came at a bad time and now I'm feeding my way into training and match fitness.
"I had a couple of reserve games, but you can't match first-team games in training.
"The disappointment was going out (against Gillingham), but for a lot of the boys there was a lot of positives to take - the whole team has come together and it's a good strong squad."
