The Big Match Preview - Luton Town

5 February 2016

A guide for supporters ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League 2 clash with Luton Town at Adams Park (k.o. 3pm).

Wycombe Wanderers vs Luton Town
Saturday 6th February 2016, k.o. 3pm
Adams Park, HP12 4HJ
Referee: Mr Sebastian Stockbridge

There's a buzz about town again after Wanderers once again upset the odds to get back on track with a superb victory at Plymouth Argyle last weekend, and Gareth Ainsworth's men now have a first ever home win over Luton Town in their sights on Saturday afternoon.

The two sides met as recently as Boxing Day when the Blues recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory against a Hatters outfit whose league form was in serious decline, but a change of management has given them new direction and progress has been steady under new boss Nathan Jones, giving them two clean sheets and five points from his first four games at the helm.

They arrive at Adams Park backed by a bumper Hatters following as always and will look to build on an impressive away record which has seen them collect more points on the road than Wycombe have at home.

The hosts' last two league outings on home soil ended in disappointment with defeats to Morecambe and Leyton Orient but they have fresh impetus from last week's much-changed side, which means Paris Cowan-Hall, Gozie Ugwu and Marcus Bean are all in contention to keep their places in the team.

There will be at least one change with Ryan Allsop coming in for his debut after signing on loan from Bournemouth on Monday, while Sam Wood could return after missing the trip to Home Park.
