Luton Town v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Saturday’s trip to Kenilworth Road.

18 January 2019

Posh begin a tricky run of fixtures with a trip to face high-flying Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

Peterborough United travel to Kenilworth Road to face high flying Luton Town in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday (3pm) afternoon as the teams with the best home and away record in the division come face to face.

Posh go into the clash with the Hatters off the back of successive victories with a 3-1 success against Chelsea under 21s at Stamford Bridge and a 2-1 victory over Rochdale at the ABAX Stadium. It has been an eventful seven days for Luton who have lost their manager Nathan Jones to Stoke City, recorded an impressive 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light and lost to Sheffield Wednesday in an FA Cup replay.

TEAM NEWS

Striker Matt Godden missed training on Thursday with an ankle injury but is expected to recover in time for the trip to Kenilworth Road. Ben White was outstanding in a reserve victory over Northampton Town in midweek and is pushing for a starting berth while George Cooper came off the bench to score against Rochdale.

The Hatters are expected to complete a loan signing for George Moncur from League One rivals Barnsley with talks underway. Moncur spent a similar loan spell at the ABAX Stadium. Striker Danny Hylton was dismissed against Sunderland and will serve a suspension with Lua Lua a potential replacement.

FROM THE GAFFER

“I watched Luton against Sheffield Wednesday and they put in a really good performance and were perhaps a touch unlucky not to win the game. They were excellent at Sunderland in arguably their best performance of the season so we know they will provide tough opposite at a stadium that creates a wonderful atmosphere. They have a superb home record, we have a really good away record, we are looking forward to the challenge,” Steve Evans said.

Luton Town strengthened their automatic promotion credentials with a 4-0 win over Posh who lost Ryan Tafazolli to a straight red card.

Peterborough United played over an hour with 10-men and promotion-chasing Luton Town put Posh to the sword at Keilworth Road as a James Collins hat-trick and a Luke Berry strike earned the Hatters a 4-0 victory in front of over 10,000 supporters.

Luton got their noses in front on eight minutes as a low cross from Stacey was converted from close-range by James COLLINS. Pearson was cautioned for a foul on Toney on 11 minutes as Posh tried to shake off the disappointment of conceding so early at Kenilworth Road.

Tomlin curled a free-kick straight into the wall from the resulting free-kick and then Toney lashed a shot well wide from the rebound. Tomlin fired wide from 25-yards on the quarter hour mark after finding a bit of room as Posh came close to finding a leveller.

Maddison tested Shea from distance on 19 minutes after skipping past two challenges on the left hand side. Maddison sent a free-kick over the crossbar on 22 minutes after Tomlin had again been upended by McCormack.

Tafazolli was shown a straight red card by referee Mr Coote on 24 minutes for a tackle on Shinnie on this near side. Posh were 2-0 down on 26 minutes as COLLINS converted again from six-yards as Posh failed to track another runner down the left.

Posh made an immediate change at that point with Joe Ward replacing Dembele. Chapman produced a superb stop to tip a drive from Berry around the post on 32 minutes before Mpanzu fired wide from distance.

Collins squandered a fine chance for the hat-trick on 36 minutes following a poor Naismith clearance but he fired wide with his left-foot. Chapman was well placed to deny Lua Lua on 36 minutes as Luton threatened a third.

Posh made a double change at the break with Alex Woodyard and George Cooper replacing Tomlin and Dempsey. It was 3-0 on 52 minutes as COLLINS completed his hat-trick, collecting a pass from Lua Lua and firing past Chapman with his left-foot.

Collins squandered a good chance to make it 4-0 on the hour mark after another poor pass in the Posh midfield, this time the hat-trick hero blazed over with his left-foot. Maddison was cautioned for a foul moments later on Shinnie.

Luton made it 4-0 on 65 minutes as former Cambridge United midfielder Luke BERRY produced a fine turn and curled the ball past Chapman. Luton made a double change on 69 minutes with ex-Posh loanees George Thorne and George Moncur replacing Shinnie and McCormack.

Toney was booked on 72 minutes for a foul by referee Mr Coote. White produced a superb clearance off the line to keep out substitute Moncur as he came desperately close to a debut goal for the Hatters.  Maddison rifled a shot over the top from 30-yards as Luton gave away possession as Posh tried to grab a consolation goal.
