TEAM NEWS

Lanre Oyebanjo (knee), Gavin Tomlin (groin) and Joe McNerney (knee) are sidelined for the Reds but Liam Donnelly and Josh Yorwerth are back in contention following their returns from international duty. 

Freddie Woodman has returned to Newcastle after Tim Krul was ruled out for the rest of the season.

For Luton, Paddy McCourt is available after international duty and ex-Reds' loanee Scott Griffiths is back in their squad. Paul Benson (neck) is definitely out.


THE FORM GUIDE                

The Reds are bouncing after claiming their first home win of the season, a 3-2 victory over promotion hopefuls Leyton Orient.

Luton have recovered from their poor start to the season and currently sit 10th in the League table. They come into Saturday's fixture off the back of a 1-1 draw, thanks to a second-half penalty from Cameron McGeehan, having won their previous four League games.


VIEW FROM THE BENCH


: "(Luton boss) John Still is a top bloke and a top manager and I know his players will work as hard as they can for him. It's another tough but so was Orient and we came through that and got a result and performance which has given us a lot of confidence." Mark Yates


WE’VE MET BEFORE?

The most recent meeting between the two sides was last year in the JP Trophy, when we came away with a 1-0 win last October thanks to a goal from Gwion Edwards. We have previously played Luton in the Conference, with the Reds claiming two wins in four meetings, the last at home a 2-1 success in March 2010.
