PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Luton Town

Clash of the Town's at Huish Park

6 April 2018

Team huddle at Coventry PPAUK

Darren Way's side will look to continue their recent run of form when high-flying Luton Town visit on Saturday (3pm).

Town come into the match unbeaten in their last three, fresh from a resounding 6-2 win at Coventry on Easter Monday.

Braces from Alex Fisher, Francois Zoko and Sam Surridge see the strike force come into the weekend full of confidence, with Fisher boasting three goals in his last two outings. 

Taking to the field at Huish Park for the first time since the beginning of March, Way's side will look to build on their seven-point haul from three trips on the road. 

Unchanged in their last two games, the Glovers could once again lineup in familiar fashion with no fresh injury concerns to worry about. 

James Bailey, Dan Alfei, Nathan Smith, Artur Krysiak (all knee) and Jake Gray (ankle) remain the only injured absentees, with Corey Whelan, Connor Smith and Marcus Barnes sitting out the trip to the Ricoh Arena. 

For the visitors, Nathan Jones' side head to Somerset looking to address their patchy form. 

Sitting second in Sky Bet League Two, the Hatters have two wins, two defeats and two draws from their last six matches seeing off Mansfield 2-1 in their last fixture. 

James Collins (20) and Danny Hylton (19) provide the most likely goal threat, backed up by Elliot Lee (nine). 

Head-to-head
Saturday will mark the 10th competitive meeting between the two sides.

To date, Town have just one win to their name with victory coming in August 2015 as Stephen Arthurworrey and Ryan Bird (x2) found the back of the net. 

The Glovers are now looking to take points off the Hatters for the first time in four encounters.

Officials
Brendan Malone (Wiltshire) will take charge of proceedings at Huish Park. 

It'll be Mr Malone's first visit to Somerset since October 2016 where he oversaw the 0-0 draw with Grimbsy.

On Saturday, he'll be assisted by Adrian Tranter (Dorset) and Simon Knapp (Bristol) with Adam Penwell acting as fourth official.
