Luton v Bristol Rovers preview
Last Updated: 14/09/18 12:31pm
Luton are expected to still be without striker Danny Hylton as the Hatters look to return to winning ways against Bristol Rovers.
Hylton has been ruled out with a minor hamstring strain since the end of last month and despite taking part in training is unlikely to be risked.
Harry Isted is set to continue as understudy to goalkeeper James Shea as Marek Stech awaits a hernia operation. The Hatters are also still without midfielder Luke Berry who has a knee injury.
Rovers boss Darrell Clarke is hoping to see his personnel problems ease as they plot their route up the table. Defender Tom Lockyer is expected to feature after missing last week's goalless draw with Plymouth while on international duty with Wales.
Joe Martin is still suspended but Liam Sercombe is set to return after missing last week's game with a hamstring injury. Rovers head into the match without a win in five games in all competitions.
Luton have only won one of the last 14 meetings with Bristol Rovers in all competitions (D5 L8), a 3-0 win in 2002, in what was a fourth-tier fixture.
Bristol Rovers have won on four of the last six visits to Kenilworth Road in all competitions (D1 L1), including each of the last two (2-1 in September 2007, 1-0 in August 2015).
Luton have picked up 19 points from a possible 21 in their last seven home league games (W6 D1), with four of those wins coming in League Two last season.
Bristol Rovers have won just one of their last 14 league games (D7 L6), a 2-1 away victory against Wycombe Wanderers last month.
Six of Luton's nine league goals this season have been scored from set-pieces, with no League One side scoring more from corner situations (3).
