Luton Town Match Preview

1 February 2019

Marcus Braddock previews the weekends visit of Luto

This weekend, we welcome Luton Town to Montgomery Waters Meadow. The Hatters have had a pretty good season so far and find themselves top of the division by five points. The chasing pack do have games in hand on them and Sunderland have three but would only draw level on points if they won all three games. Their start to the season didn't suggest the sort of form that was to come, they lost two and drew one of their first three league games, but they were pretty tough games against Portsmouth, Sunderland and Peterborough United.  Since then though they've only lost twice in the league and their current unbeaten league run goes back to mid October. Even losing their manager to Stoke hasn't interrupted their march on the top of the division with three wins and a draw in League One since new boss Mick Harford took over.

Fourteen, five of which came from away games.

Goals

Luton have scored an incredible amount of goals this season, particularly at home where they've scored 38 times, 12 more than any other team at home. In away games they've a relatively normal scoring rate for a team in their position with 20 scored and 16 conceded. They score 70% of their away goals in the second half  and also concede less, with 38% which amounts to six goals all season. Luton score 1.3 goals per away game so we're likely to need more than that to beat them unless we can keep things particularly tight.

Referee - Graham Salisbury from Lancashire. Games this season:23. Yellow cards: 84.

Red cards: 3.

Assistants: Ian Clayton and Will Smith.
Fourth official: Darren Wilding.

Team News

Luton are likely to do without Elliot Lee and Harry Cornick. In the transfer window Luton brought in experienced defender Alex Baptiste from Rangers. They've also loaned in forwards Aaron Connolly (Brighton) and Jason Cummings (Notts Forest).

We've brought in a few players in a range of positions so there may well be a change or two.

Summary

I was surprised to see that Luton haven't beaten us at home since 2002 but that only amounts to a couple of games which is surprising in itself, we've only played five times this century. Given our recent inconsistent form I wouldn't want to be deciding on the odds for a home win. We've done well against some of the better teams we've faced but it's difficult to see the team that lost to Bradford beating the top team in the division. Fortunately that team can be changed if need be, we have some very promising looking players who have just arrived and all want to play. Hopefully this competition for places will improve performances across the board and add higher quality where it's required. It's what needs to happen if we're to have any chance of equalling or beating a team like Luton.

A disappointing afternoon for Town came to an end with Luton Town taking all three points after an impressive 0-3 win.

Former Town frontman James Collins helped his side to all three points with two goals against his former team.

Team News: Sam Ricketts made a number changes to his starting line-up to face the Hatters this afternoon. Tyrese Campbell, Romain Vincelot and Scott Golbourn were all awarded starts and new boys Ro-Shaun Williams and Stefan Payne both started on the bench.

First Half:

Town came into this match looking to take the game to the visitors and Sam Ricketts’ men did just that. The first 10 minutes fell in Town’s favour and the Shrews looked a threat going forward – with the pace of Tyrese Campbell and Fejiri Okenabirhie.

Town had a real good chance to take the lead after the 20-minute mark through Greg Docherty. After the ball was poorly cleared from the box, the midfielder latched onto the ball but saw his first-time effort rise above the bar.

Campbell nearly opened his account for Town with a back heel effort at goal. Ollie Norburn smartly found the striker in the box but Campbell had a man in-between him and the goal. He did well to strike the ball towards the net, only to see it deflected away.

Very much against the run of play the Hatters managed to snatch the lead. James Collins got onto the end of a cross just six yards from the net and calmly slotted the ball away– giving the visitors a one goal lead in the 30th minute.

The Hatters goal swung the balance of the game and encouraged the visitors to be more attacking minded. They were pushing Town all the way and were relentless in their efforts.

Town were still trying to be positive but Luton were proving hard to breakdown. Their compact midfield and defence nullified most of Town’s attacks and made space in the final third a rarity.

The half came to an end with Luton taking the one goal advantage into the break. A competitive half saw Town have a positive start with the visitors growing into the fixture as the minutes went on.

Second Half:

The half started in the worst possible fashion for Town. A fairly standard cross from Matty Pearson caught out Steve Arnold and the ball squeezed in-between the keeper and the bar to double the Hatters lead.

Luton were doing a good job of frustrating Town, especially in the middle of the park. The Hatters still kept their midfield tight and were doing well to win the majority of their individual duals.

Town were still working hard and the introduction of Shaun Whalley and Stefan Payne definitely helped Town’s cause. Whalley pressured the Luton back line repeatedly but nothing was falling for Town.

Collins added a third for Luton just before the 70th minute mark. Kazenga Lualua did well to find the striker in the box and Collins managed to poke the ball past Arnold despite pressure from Luke Waterfall.

Payne was given a yellow card in the 73rd minute for a foul near the Tow box.

In the 82nd minute Town had a chance to shorten the visitor’s lead with a free kick on the edge of the box. Okenabirhie couldn’t create the same quality as his last effort and his shot went over the bar.

A disappointing afternoon for Town came to an end with Luton Town taking all three points after an impressive 0-3 win.
