This afternoon, the Hatters are on the Essex coast, preparing to play Southend United in a League One fixture.
Although it is hardly kiss-me-quick weather or the time of the year when a stroll along the legendary Southend pier is the order of the day, today could be a milestone in the Hatters season.

With Mick Harford still in temporary charge, after the departure of Nathan Jones, continuing the foundations already laid this season is imperative.
With the kick-off fast approaching and with the atmosphere inside Roots Hall starting to build, we are now able to bring you the team-sheets to peruse.
Starting with our hosts, Southend United:
