2 selection dilemmas Nathan Jones has ahead of second leg play-off clash as Luton travel to Huddersfield

Published

With the tie perfectly poised at 1-1, Luton Town travel to Huddersfield Town this evening with a spot at Wembley up for grabs. 

90 minutes away from finding out who will be the first team to reach the Championship play-off final, Nathan Jones will be doing all he can to ensure that it is the Hatters walking out in the capital. 

Sonny Bradley cancelled Danel Sinani’s opener during the first leg clash on Friday evening, in what was a very competitive game.

Here, we take a look at two selection dilemmas that Nathan Jones has ahead of the second leg in Yorkshire…

Elijah Adebayo decision 

Jones hinted that Elijah Adebayo could have featured in the first leg against the Terriers, however, he was not risked in the 18-man squad on the occasion. 

With an extra few days of recovery, Adebayo could be deemed fit for the clash up in Yorkshire, although the Hatters have recalled Josh Neufville from his loan spell at Yeovil Town. 

It is expected that Neufville will go straight into the squad for tonight’s clash, with the athletic forward causing all sorts of chaos in his second stint with the Glovers.

Given the importance of this tie, it may lean Jones towards taking a risk even if Adebayo is not fully fit. 

Creative midfield selection 

Jordan Clark was unable to have too much of an influence on home turf on Friday evening, something that could pave the way for a Robert Snodgrass return. 

In a game where fine margins are likely to determine the winner, the 34-year-old’s set-piece delivery and general creativity could prove invaluable. 

Snodgrass has been a real hit with the Luton fanbase, adding both the on and off-field attributes that have helped the Bedfordshire outfit secure a play-off spot. 

Clark can carve open defences at will but the experience that Snodgrass brings could be opted for.
