Luton v Stanley

11 November 2016

After back to back cup ties Stanley return to league action tomorrow.

The Reds travel to in form Luton Town looking to keep pace with the League Two play-off places.[vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title="The Reds" tab_id="1470411712017-30fe7d0e-41fab72e-6c49658d-0122"]After a break for the FA Cup and Checkatrade Trophy for Stanley, they return to the business of League Two for their first league game in a fortnight.

The Reds' fluctuating form means there's seldom a dull moment this season and they'll be keen to continue a run of decent away displays at Kenilworth Road.

They'll hope for a repeat of last season's trip to Luton which saw them win 2-0.[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title="Form" tab_id="1470411712406-ac66af5e-34ebb72e-6c49658d-0122"]

Stanley will be looking for a return to winning ways in the league after losing last time out to Newport.

Since then they've impressed in winning at Bradford in the first round of the FA Cup and disappointed in defeat to Wolves Under 21's.

John Coleman's team are 9th in League Two, two points from the play-off places and four behind their hosts.[/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion]

Team News

On loan winger John O'Sullivan is likely to be out for at least another week having missed the last two games through injury.

Fellow loanee Zak Vyner has also missed the last couple of games but is rated as touch and go for a return from his hamstring problem.

Full back Janoi Donacien is also likely to be ruled out again, meaning Paddy Lacey could continue to stand in at right back.[vc_tta_accordion][vc_tta_section title="The Opposition" tab_id="1470411712017-30fe7d0e-41fab72e-6c49f96c-5bea"]After earning promotion to the Football League prior to the 2014/15 season, the Hatters are in their third campaign back in League Two.
