Carabao Cup Date at Luton Set
Friday, 28th Jun 2019 10:07

Town’s first round Carabao Cup tie against Championship new boys Luton at Kenilworth Road will take place on Tuesday 13th August subject to TV selections, the clubs have confirmed (KO 7.45pm).

Tickets will cost £20 for adults, £15 for over-65s and under-22s, £12 for over-75s and under-19s, £6 for under-17s and £3 for accompanied under-10s. Details on when tickets will go on sale are still to be confirmed.

The teams last met in the same competition two seasons ago, also in round one, when the Blues, then in the Championship with the Hatters in League Two, won 2-0, David McGoldrick netting both goals in the Blues' only cup victory in the last three seasons.

Town and the Hatters were also drawn together in the competition on two further occasions.

In November 1987 John Duncan's Blues were beaten 1-0 at Portman Road in the fourth round of what was then known as the Littlewoods Cup with Brian Stein on target. The Hatters went on to win the trophy that season.

Luton were also victorious in a two-legged second round tie between the sides in September 1998, winning the Kenilworth Road match 4-2 - David Johnson and home defender Sol Davis netting for Town and Andrew Fotiadis, Stuart Douglas, Davis at the right end and Marvin Johnson for Luton - after George Burley's Town had won 2-1 at Portman Road when Manu Thetis and James Scowcroft were on the scoresheet for the Blues.

Overall, the Blues have won 12 games (eight in the league) between the sides, Luton 12 (nine) with five (three) having ended in draws.

Last season the Blues were beaten 4-2 on penalties at Exeter City in round one following a 1-1 draw.

I thought the tv selections had been made already?

£20? No problem. We're away to a higher-ranked side ;-)

Sign of the times I suppose that we go into this as underdogs, against a side placed higher. And that we're vying with Plymouth to sign Mayor.
