Luton vs Bradford preview
Last Updated: 26/11/18 5:07pm
Luton striker Danny Hylton is expected to return for the in-form Hatters in Tuesday's Sky Bet League One clash with Bradford.
Hylton served the last game of a three-match suspension in Saturday's win at Gillingham and should go straight back into the starting line-up.
The 3-1 victory at Priestfield lifted the Hatters to the fringes of the automatic promotion places following a fifth win in their last six league games. Alan Sheehan and Aaron Jarvis are among those pushing for starting places after coming off the bench in Kent.
Bradford's first win in eight games against Oxford on Saturday was tainted by the sending-off of Nathaniel Knight-Percival. The Bantams failed in a subsequent appeal against his red card, meaning the defender must sit out the trip to Kenilworth Road.
The news is a further blow to Bantams boss David Hopkin who is already without the suspended Anthony O'Connor for the game. But Kelvin Mellor has made good progress in training and is expected to return to the travelling squad.
This is the first meeting between these two sides since a 3-3 draw in the fourth tier at Kenilworth Road in January 2009.
Luton are unbeaten against Bradford in eleven games in all competitions (W6 D5), most recently losing against them in April 1968 in a fourth tier tie.
Luton are unbeaten in 13 home league games, winning the last four in a row. They last won five consecutively at Kenilworth Road in December 2014 (a run of eight).
Bradford are looking to win consecutive league games for the first time since January.
