Luton Town come into this game on the back of a 2-0 loss to Wayne Rooney's Derby County yesterday at the Pride Park Stadium. Goals from striker Lee Gregory and Scottish midfielder Graeme Shinnie ensured victory for Derby County.

Barnsley, on the other hand, drew 1-1 against Veljko Paunovic's Reading yesterday at Oakwell. A first-half goal from midfielder Ovie Ejaria for Reading was cancelled out by a second-half penalty from midfielder Alex Mowatt for Barnsley.
