Preview: Luton V Robins

23 February 2018

Cheltenham Town make the trip to Kenilworth Road to face league leaders Luton Town in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

The Robins suffered a 2-0 defeat to Wycombe Wanderers on home soil last weekend and now face the Hatters, who did not play last Saturday, in their own backyard.

Luton are flying high in top spot and with 20 wins from 33 games – and have scored an impressive league high 72 goals in the division.

When then teams met earlier in the season the game ended 1-1 at the LCI Rail Stadium as Jamie Grimes and Will Boyle – with a dramatic injury time equaliser - scored the goals.

The Opposition:

Luton Town manager Nathan Jones is hoping a weekend off will mean his Hatters are firing in all cylinders come Saturday afternoon.

Luton were not in action last weekend due to Coventry’s involvement in the FA Cup and Jones felt they made the most of their break leading into the final 13 games of the campaign.

He said: “We’re ready, whether we’re fresh, you’d think so.

“Sometimes these can work in your favour and sometimes they can work against you, but we’re delighted with the break we had and we’re looking forward to getting back to it.

“They’re a good group and what it has given us is the chance to get everyone back and that’s the main thing.

“If we had played the Coventry game we still would have been missing Hylton, McCormack, Cuthbert and so on, but they’re all back now, so that’s a bonus as it’s a big squad available.”

Team News:

Cheltenham team news: Manager Gary Johnson has a nearly fully fit squad to select from and will only be able to select five of his seven loan players. Jordan Cranston and Jordon Forster remain sidelined after long-term injuries.

Luton team news: Luton boss Nathan Jones also has a virtually full fit squad to choose from. The Hatters chief had been without the likes of Danny Hylton, Alan McCormack and Scott Cuthbert, with Johnny Mullins missing a few games too. However, Elliot Lee (shoulder) and Dan Potts (suspended) are out.

The man in the middle:

Referee Mark Heywood – who has taken charge of 24 games this season and handed out 96 yellow cards and three red cards - will take charge of the league clash at Kenilworth Road. He will be assisted by Stephen Finch, Daniel Cook and fourth official Adrian Waters.
