Match Preview – Luton vs Fleetwood

Last Updated: 07/12/18 3:32pm

Luton have no new injury concerns and will revert to a full-strength side at home to Fleetwood.

Hatters boss Nathan Jones made 11 changes for the Checkatrade Trophy tie against Southend in midweek, which ended in a penalty shoot-out defeat.

Luton’s Sky Bet League One regulars will be recalled en bloc against Joey Barton’s Fleetwood, with the likes of Dan Potts, Alan Sheehan and Danny Hylton expected to be on the bench. Alan McCormack remains the only absentee for third-placed Luton as the midfielder has not regained full fitness.
