Luton Town will be hoping to progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup this afternoon when Harrogate Town visit Kenilworth Road.
Nathan Jones’ side have been out of action for almost a month now, with their last competitive match ending as a 1-1 draw with Fulham.
Luton, who progressed to the fourth round last year by beating Reading and setting up a tie with Chelsea, find themselves a few games behind the pack in the league.
Quiz: Can you name which club Luton Town signed these 28 midfielders from?
The Hatters will welcome back Mick Harford to the dugout this afternoon, with the Luton legend completing his course of radiotherapy treatment for prostate cancer before Christmas.
This, combined with Alan Sheehan returning to the club as a first-team coach, is expected to generate a huge reaction at kick-off within the Luton faithful.
Naming a strong side for the visit of their League Two opposition, Jones has made three changes to the side that drew with Fulham almost a month ago.
There are starts for Carlos Mendes Gomes, Henri Lansbury and Cameron Jerome, with Jerome starting his first game for the Hatters since the end of October
Admiral Muskwe misses out altogether as he prepares for international duty with Zimbabwe during their African Cup of Nations campaign.
Pelly Ruddock-Mpanzu and Allan Campbell drop to the bench for today’s clash.
Here, we take a look at how Luton fans have reacted on Twitter to news of the Hatters’ starting line up for today’s game against Harrogate…
