Luton Town are looking to spring a surprise in the Sky Bet Championship this evening as they head to West Yorkshire to take on Leeds United.
Nathan Jones’ side are battling for their lives in the Championship run-in, but have given themselves a fighting chance by picking up four points since the season resumed.
Saturday saw Luton win 1-0 at Swansea City, with Jones’ striker James Collins securing him a first three points since to was reappointed at Kenilworth Road.
Yet, on the back of that victory, the head-coach has opted to make a selection of changes.

Simon Sluga continues in goal, with Matty Pearson, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Sonny Bradley and Dan Potts all retaining their place in the side.
James Bree is drafted into the XI, as is Ryan Tunnicliffe. Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu and Glen Rea retain their place in the side.
Collins drops out of the side and is replaced by Danny Hylton, whilst there is also a start for Callum McManaman.
Last weekend’s goalscorer is amongst the substitutes, as are Izzy Brown, Harry Cornick and Elliott Lee.
Here we take a look at the Luton reaction to the team news…

Saving our players for games we have a much better chance at winning. I have no problem with that

Happy he’s rotated but he said this isn’t a free hit game, the team says different.
