Team news: Luton Town (A)

8 December 2018

Fleetwood Town head coach Joey Barton has named his side for the Sky Bet League One fixture against Luton Town.

Town travel to third place Luton after a 2-1 victory over National League North side Guiseley on Monday evening, with the win seeing Fleetwood confirmed in the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup, with a cup tie against AFC Wimbledon lined up.

The Hatters have won four of their last five matches, with a 5-1 win at home to Plymouth Argyle, and a 3-1 away win at Gillingham in recent weeks seeing the club close to the top two in the league.

Barton has made three changes to the side that started against Guiseley in midweek with Wes Burns, Conor McAleny and Lewie Coyle missing out. This results in Jason Holt, Ross Wallace and Ryan Taylor coming into the starting eleven.

Ross Wallace will make his 500th league appearance in all competitions today; a huge milestone for the Scottish midfielder.

Fleetwood XI: Cairns (GK), Holt, Eastham, Evans, Madden, Taylor, Morgan ©, R. Wallace, Marney, Husband, Sheron.

Subs: P. Jones, Dempsey, McAleny, Bolger, Holgate, Biggins, Baines.
