Brendan Galloway (Fractured Kneecap), Dan Potts (Unknown Injury) and Eunan O'Kane (Fractured Leg) will not be able to play for Luton gaffer Nathan Jones.
Team News: Blackburn Rovers
Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray has to currently contend with reduced team options. Daniel Ayala (Groin Strain), Derrick Williams (Thigh Muscle Strain), Bradley Dack (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Lewis Travis (Ligament Injury) and Elliott Bennett (Ankle Surgery) are those who can’t be considered.
Here, we’re thinking that Luton Town will have to perform well to be putting a goal past this Blackburn Rovers outfit who should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore tipping a very even contest with a 0-1 winning margin for Blackburn Rovers when the referee blows for full-time.
Should be an interesting one.
