Preview: Luton Town (A)

Off the back of the international break, City head to Kenilworth Town where they face recently promoted Luton Town.

The Robins have now gone 10 matches unbeaten in the Sky Bet Championship as they prepare to face Graeme Jones' side.

By contrast, the Hatters have just one win in the their last five league matches but will look to an opening day exciting 3-3 draw with Middlesbrough as well big victories over Cardiff City and Huddersfield for inspiration.

It will be the first meeting between these two team since 2015. That was a League Cup tie, with the last league encounter coming back in 2005.

MATCH DETAILS

  • Date: Saturday, October 19th 2019
  • Kick-off: 3pm
  • Competition: Sky Bet Championship
  • Where: Kenilworth Road

CLUB NEWS

WORD FROM THE CAMP

Though it has been 14 years since City's last league meeting with Luton, Lee Johnson has been speaking of his familiarity with the Bedfordshire side following his playing days.

The City Head Coach wants his players to start brightly at Kenilworth Road and is wary of the host's good home record - the Hatters have lost only twice at home this season in the Championship.

Elsewhere, Famara Diédhiou returns to BS3 in good spirits. His goal was enough to send City into the break with a win over Reading before he scored to help Senegal hold Brazil in a 1-1 draw.

MEMORABLE FIXTURE

Bristol City 3-1 Luton
Saturday, April 28th 2001
Nationwide League Division Two
Scorers: Brown 33, 65, Thorpe 78
Att: 9,161

City owed their win in this poor end of season game to already relegated Luton's poor finishing. The Hatters, who twice in the first half had shots cleared off the line, spurned some easy chances, whilst their sloppy defending gave Brown his opening volley and his late header.

Report: Bristol City, The Modern Era (David Woods)

Bristol City XI: Phillips, Carey, Hill, Clist, Burnell, Tinnion, Murray, Da Silva, Peacock, Brown, Bell.
