Luton travel to York this weekend to take on a side that is; like us, considered amongst the favourites for promotion.

Whilst Gary Brabin has distanced himself from any talk of the Hatters topping the table, the consensus amongst the Luton support is that this will be game and a half to win.

Unfortunately, as has been the case in recent weeks, Luton make the long trip with injury issues. Likely to be missing are George Pilkington, Shane Blackett, Keith Keane, Curtis Osano, Dan Gleeson, Fred Murray and Charlie Henry whilst Luton will also be without the suspended duo of Dean Beckwith and Amari Morgan-Smith.

Facing such hardship, the view is that Luton could line-up as follows:-

Tyler, Keane, Antwi, Kovacs, Howells, Dance, Lawless, Hand, Willmott, O`Connor, Fleetwood

Our opponents though have minor injury concerns compared to ours. Chris Smith is likely to get over a groin strain and be available to play whilst Ashley Chambers should have recovered form a calf problem.

The potential danger man in the York side is a player we know only too well – Jason Walker. The striker has got off to a good start this season and has already netted seven time sin ten games.

Speaking about the encounter, the York manager, Gary Mills had this to say to his local radio station,

‘We all know about Luton and York.”

‘I’m confident my players will go out and perform the way they can. We’re getting that bit of belief.”

‘I’ve always been one without kidding people on that we are good enough to beat anybody if we play how we can play.’


On the Luton side of the fence, our recent signing, albeit on a one month loan, Janos Kovacs, has spoken about a quick return to York, having played there for a spell, had this to say about facing York this Saturday,

“When I checked the fixture list, I was happy that the second one was York. It`s the main part in this football club too the fans. Some of the League clubs can`t show half of these fans at home, so I don`t need to say any more positives about them, they`re just brilliant.”

I hope he was talking about the Hatters fans.

Following this fixture, our hectic schedule continues with a home game against Cambridge United.
