The likely Luton Town XI Jones is set to field v Middlesbrough this weekend

Published

on

Luton Town head north this weekend to take on Middlesbrough as the Hatters look to gain momentum heading into a crucial part of the season.

Graeme Jones’ side won 1-0 at home to Sheffield Wednesday a couple of days ago thanks to a James Collins strike and he will be demanding that his side do the same again when they travel to Teeside.

The Luton boss will have the luxury of almost choosing from a full squad following the returns of Sonny Bradley and Danny Hylton.

Here is the likely XI that Jones is set to field vs Middlesbrough this weekend…

Jones is expected to stick with the same team and same formation that was able to overcome Sheffield Wednesday.

Simon Sluga will keep his spot in between the sticks following some fine performances of late.

Dan Potts will provide the energy up and down the flank from left-back as he looks to make a contribution in attacking and defensive situations.

Which current Luton Town player is Peter Kioso's cousin?

Bradley and Matty Pearson will continue their partnership in the heart of defence after impressing against the Owls on Wednesday.

Summer signing James Bree will keep his spot at right-back despite predominantly being left-footed.

Jones is likely to stick with the 4-4-2 diamond with Glen Rea acting as the defensive midfielder. The Irishman will be responsible for providing the defence with a shield and using his physicality to act as a third centre-back at times.

Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu and Ryan Tunnicliffe will both provide the midfield with energy and calmness while in possession as they look to play the box-to-box role.

Izzy Brown will continue in the role of attacking midfield as his direct runs and ability to play in between the lines could hurt tomorrow’s hosts.

James Collins and Harry Cornick are likely to be the front pairing again after they both put in an impressive shift against Sheffield Wednesday.
