A look ahead to tonight's Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie

Reds go to Kenilworth Road tonight for a second round tie in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.


MATCH OFFICIALS

Referee: Andy Woolmer

Assistants: Colin Lymer and Robert Massey-Ellis

Fourth Official: John Farries


TEAM NEWS

Ryan Dickson (knee) and Emmett O'Connor (hamstring) are both sidelined by injury.
Luke Gutteridge and Jake Howells are likely to get starts for Luton, while Andy Drury is likely to face his former club in midfield.


VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: "It's great to see Luton back in the Football League and doing so well. I wouldn't be surprised if they came straight through and joined us in League One. They are on a decent run as well but this is a competition we want to do well in. Playing at Wembley would be massive for this club so there won't be too many changes to our team."


Luton boss John Still, pictured): "We will make some changes and give players coming back from injury or those who need it game time. But it will be a strong side and it's game we want to win. It will be a team that I think can win the game."

 

WE’VE MET BEFORE?

Four previous meetings have produced two Crawley wins, a draw and one defeat. We met Luton in the 2010-11 Conference winning campaign, winning 2-1 at Kenilworth Road almost four years to the day thanks to goals from Richard Brodie and Craig McAllister in front of 6,895. When the teams met again at Crawley in April 2011 Reds were presented with the Conference trophy after witnessing a 1-1 draw.


FORM GUIDE

Reds have won six, drawn two and lost six in all competitions this season. Luton have won their last three games in League Two, including Saturday's 2-1 triumph at Stevenage.
