A visit to Kenilworth Road is next on the away journey list for the Reds, as we head to the home of Luton Town on Tuesday night.
An all-seater stadium, Kenilworth Road holds just over 10,000. Situated just west of Luton town centre, the stadium has been the Hatters’ home since 1905 when they left Dunstable Road.
Our record at Kenilworth Road is a relatively positive one, winning twice and losing just the once from our three journeys in the League. Our last victory there came in March 2016, with an early Matt Harold strike separating the sides.
Reds fans will be housed behind the goal in the Oak Road Stand. The entrance to the away end is one more unusual in the League as it feels like you’re about to enter someone’s house and their back garden. The stand holds just over 1,500, with home fans also being situated to the left as you look from the main stand.
The stadium is known for having a pretty good atmosphere, with the Hatters enjoying an average home attendance of 8,538 so far this season.
Refreshments inside the ground are your classics with burgers, hot dogs, pasties and sausage rolls all on offer throughout the concourse, all at relatively respective prices as well. The away concourse also offers a small bar area serving bottled beers and draught, with a television showing all the days football scores.
A few minutes from the train station is a pub called the English Rose, a hostelry that has made it on the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and is more than happy to welcome away fans.
If you’re heading up on the train then Luton is a 15-minute walk from the stadium. The journey is usually just over an hour and a half, leaving on the Thameslink at Three Bridges and going straight through.
Going out the 1635 arrives at 1802, the 1705 at 1832 and 1735 at 1902. Return trips go at 2204 (Three Bridges 2343), 2246 (0030), 2306 (0056) and 2334 (0146).
