Fresh off the back of progressing to the next round of the FA Cup, Luton Town welcome Barnsley to the Kenilworth Road Stadium on Tuesday.

The visitors, on the other hand, head into the game on a five-match losing streak and will be desperate to end this dry spell.

Luton Town maintained their fine run of results as they claimed a 3-0 win over Cambridge United to progress to the next round of the FA Cup.

They are now unbeaten in each of their last four games in all competitions, claiming three wins and one draw since a 2-0 loss against Sheffield United on January 22.

With 42 points from 28 games, Luton Town are currently ninth in the EFL Championship standings, level on points with Sheffield United.

Meanwhile, Barnsley were sent packing from the FA Cup as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Huddersfield Town last time out.

They have now lost their last five games on the bounce, conceding eight goals and scoring just once in that time.

Barnsley remain rooted to the bottom of the league table after picking up just 14 points from 28 games.
