PREVIEW Luton Town v Oxford United

A full guide to the last game of the season

3 May 2019

Oxford United finish the season with a trip to promoted Luton Town on Saturday

TEAM NEWS
The U's are without the suspended Ahmed Kashi while loanees Jordan Graham and Samir Carruthers are not involved having been told they can return to the parent clubs last week.

Karl Robinson's big decision is whether to stick with youngster Nico Jones in defence after his debut last week or recall Rob Dickie alongside Curtis Nelson.  Jamie Mackie and Jerome Sinclair compete to start up front while another youngster, winger Kyran Lofthouse, is likely to be on the bench again.

It's a last game for coach Shaun Derry before he leaves for pastures new - see Shaun, Karl Robinson and Jamie Hanson previewing the game in iFollow right now.

THE OPPOSITION
Boss Mick Harford hands the reins over to his successor tomorrow with Graeme Jones taking over from Tuesday. Luton legend Harford admits that he will be emotional when he comes out of the tunnel before kick off on Saturday. 

“The coaching staff have been taking the mickey out me, saying we’re fed up of hearing ‘there’s only one Mickey Harford’ and all that, the songs and the chants.
 
“But even thinking about it now sends a shiver down my spine, and I have a real good affinity with the football fans at Luton Town Football Club. I know they’ll get behind me, they’ll get behind the team on Saturday, and also when the incoming manager comes in, they’ll give him massive support and that’s good to know for everyone at the football club."

Former U's striker Danny Hylton misses out through injury.
