If the weather sorts itself out and the pitch is playable, Saturday's visitors are Coventry City.
Coventry have been on a roll with five matches unbeaten until last weekends's 5-0 thrashing at West Brom.
They will want to put it behind them and come out ready for this one, but the road to Hell is paved with good intentions! We all know what happened after our 5-0 thrashing at Ipswich - we went into the worst run in the club's history!
Luton, meanwhile will want to return to winning ways after drawing a blank last Friday against Southend and taking only one point when three were expected.
Mike Newell on lutontoday.co.uk:
'They (Coventry) were on a decent run, but they will still be smarting from that result as it turned out to be a bit of a hiding.
'It didn't start like that though because they had a chance in the first minute and then two chances after West Brom scored their first goal, which could have turned it in the opposite direction.
'We know it will be a difficult game because they will still be hurting from that result.'
Sky Blues'Assistant Manager Adrian Heath said on Coventry's official site:
'Kenilworth Road is a really difficult place to go and it always has been. Mike Newell will be getting into his team because they've been on a terrible run but by all accounts, they've been much improved in the last few games and we know it will be a tough game for us.
'We've got a lot more points away from home and our performances have been a lot more encouraging. Let's hope that last week's debacle against West Brom was a one-off and that we can go on another little run.'
Luton have no new injury worries and Chris Coyne and Sol Davis are back in contention.
If he plays he is one to watch because I for one thought I'd never be able to watch him again.
Manager Micky Adams could make wholesale changes to the side which will face Luton. Robert Page is suspended, while Leon McKenzie returns from a one-match ban and will be available.
Jay Tabb, Kevin Thornton and Dave McNamee are all injured, while Isaac Osbourne could return to contention after a run out for the second X1 following injury.
Mikkel Bischoff, recently a perennial substitute may get a start, but there is a doubt over the fitness of goalkeeper Andy Marshall, who has been struggling with a knee injury. Coventry have asked the league for special dispensation to bring in another keeper as cover, although nothing has been confirmed as yet.
Big bustling striker with plenty of fire power.
Our last four home games agaisnt Coventry have seen luton win 3 (1-0, 1-0, 2-0) and lose the most recent one 1-2 last season, in a close match.
Overall home matches v Coventry have seen Luton win 17 (47.22%) Coventry City win 12 (33.33%) and 7 draws (19.44%).
