PREVIEW: Cheltenham Town vs Luton Town

This Saturday sees us take on Luton Town in the second match at The LCI Rail Stadium this week after Tuesday’s draw with Stevenage.

If you haven’t yet bought your tickets, you can get them in advance online here.

Luton lie second in League Two after a good start to the season that has seen them record five wins, two draws and three losses in the first ten games.

It is manager Nathan Jones’ first full season with The Hatters after he took over midway through the last campaign and guided them to an 11th placed finish.

Jones will be looking for his side to fare much better this season, but has kept mainly the same squad apart from the permanent additions of Jordan Cook from Walsall and Jake Gray from Crystal Palace.

Luton already boasted an impressive squad before those additions, with former Scottish international Craig Mackail-Smith, former Northern Irish attacker Josh McQuoid and ex-Norwich City midfielder Cameron McGeehan amongst their team.

This will be the tenth meeting between the two sides, with the last one coming back in January 2015 when we recorded a 1-1 draw with the Hertfordshire side thanks to a Zack Kotwica strike.

Overall we’ve faced Luton nine times, winning two of them, drawing four and losing three – so hopefully we can improve that record this weekend.
