Full Match Pack
We look ahead to Saturday afternoon as United head for Luton Town in Sky Bet League 2. 

TEAM NEWS
United have no new injuries as they head for Kenilworth Road. With four draws and a win from their last five games the U's are picking up pace after a poor start to the season and will soon have Andy Whing and Ryan Clarke in contention again after they played in a Development Side game in midweek. There was further good news on the injury front with Will Hoskins well ahead of schedule after a groin injury and not requiring an operation.

See the full interview with Michael Appleton plus a hilarious Preview Show where Johnny Mullins turns interviewer and Mike Ford turns the clock back to tell us all about his Manor Ground teammates, all in Yellow Player right now. 

THE OPPOSITION
Luton manager John Still is looking forward to the first Football League meeting between the sides for 12 years. “A few years ago it would have been a Conference clash, because that’s the nature of football,” he said.“Even as Conference clubs you’re probably looking at two clubs that would think of themselves as Football League clubs.I would have thought that playing in the Conference would have been a big game, certainly crowd-wise. I'm sure it will be Saturday.

“Oxford, having got back in the league, have established themselves as a Football League club.I know probably most of their players and although they haven’t started great, there’s not a lot in the games, as we've found ourselves. This is an opportunity for them to push on and an opportunity for us to try to establish what we've done over the last couple of games which is some good performances and good results.”

Jonathan Smith is available, having trained this week after a groin strain kept him out of last weekend's 1-0 win at Cambridge, but Paul Benson, Luke Rooney, Jake Howells and Curtley Williams are all 50/50,
