Luton Town

Last updated: Sun 24 March 2019 12:20
In Brief

Held to a 2:2 draw by Gillingham. Slowed down lately but remain top. Alan McCormack is unlikely. James Collins is away on international duty.

Looking Back

Luton had narrowly the better of things in their last week's game against Gillingham, but had to settle for a 2:2 draw.

The draw was their third in five, as they have slowed down lately. However, they are unbeaten since October and remain at the top of the table.

Looking Ahead

Alan McCormack missed the previous game after failing a late fitness test and is not expected to make it, but Alan Sheehan is expected back.

Top scorer James Collins has been summoned for international duty and will not be available.

Points of Interest

Luton have drawn two of their last three home games. However, they still have by far the best home record in the league, having won fourteen and drawn five of their nineteen home games.

Doncaster Rovers

Last updated: Sun 24 March 2019 12:20
In Brief

Played out a derby draw with Barnsley. Niall Mason has had his contract terminated. "Two big players" will miss out, one of which is thought to be Ben Whiteman.

Looking Back

Doncaster had their chances in their derby clash with Barnsley, but had to settle for a 1:1 draw against the Tykes.

The Rovers remain sixth in the League One table, but have not won in their last six league outings, which is their longest league winless run since the start of the season.

Looking Ahead

Niall Mason was recently suspended by the club after being convicted of assault and has now had his contract terminated.

Ian Lawlor, Shaun Cummings and Joe Wright have all been missing for some time now.

Grant McCann has stated that two big players will miss out, but has refused to name them. Ben Whiteman picked up an injury last week, so he could be one of the men in question.

Points of Interest

The last seven meetings between these two sides have produced three home wins, two of which were claimed by the Rovers, and four draws.
