PREVIEW Oxford United v Luton Town

A full guide to tonight's League 1 game at Grenoble Road

2 October 2018

Oxford United welcome Luton Town to Grenoble Road this evening. Here's a full guide.

Team News

The U's look to bounce back after defeat at Wimbledon and have Jamie Hanson available despite him limping off during the second half at the Cherry Red Records Stadium. 

Samir Carruthers could make a welcome return to the squad after training fully this week after his knee injury while Simon Eastwood is due to train on Thursday and Marcus Browne is scheduled to return 24 hours later, leaving just Rob Hall in the treatment room as United's injury problems ease.

The Opposition

Luton come into the game off the back of a 2-2 draw with Charlton at Kenilworth Road on Saturday where boss Nathan Jones felt hard done by:

"It definitely is two points dropped" he said. "We were the better side, apart from late on, the last three or four minutes, right at the end when they were pushing everyone forward and had a few corners and so on. I felt we were the better side.

"They've been as clinical as us, but we had far more opportunities and that's the thing that is hurting us at the minute. We're showing we're a really good side. We can compete, we can play. We've just got to not give silly goals away and just be a bit more professional late on."

It looks like former United striker Danny Hylton will be missing up front for the Hatters tonight. 

"We've just got to be careful, it's so tricky" Jones said last week of Hylton."It could be days, it could be Saturday if everything goes well with no problems. It could be Tuesday, it could be next week, we don't 100 per cent know. We know everything about the injury, it's just about being comfortable enough so that he doesn't breakdown again."


The game is no longer All Ticket- you can buy online at up until 5pm or call 01865 337533 as well as buying at the ticket office up until kick off time.

Please note that the barier will be in place behind the North Stand so there will be no transfer between the ends of the ground behind that stand.
