13 March 2007
Both teams will be looking for maximum points in this relegation six pointer. Hull's confidence will have been boosted by a morale-lifting 2-0 win at home against Preston while Luton are still in the doldrums having lost 1-0 at Leeds, and having lost the last four.
Mike Newell issued a rallying cry to the Town faithful on Luton's official website.
'They are all big games and it's a big week for us with a two week international break coming up, so we want to make sure we can get maximum points.
'Nothing is going to be decided this week. You can't expect clubs to lose every week so you have to get your own house in order. You can only affect it by winning your own games.
'Ask Burnley where they've come from. Ask the other clubs in the bottom six if they are safe yet.'
When asked about the importance of the crowd's support he went on:
'I don't think that some supporters know how important it is sometimes. They will share our frustrations and they will get on at the players and the Manager, but that won't help at all.'
Kevin Foley returns to the squad for tonight's match after missing the defeat at Leeds on Saturday. However, Matthew Spring is rated as doubtful after picking up a knock in Monday's training session.
Looked to have the fire in his belly when he came on at Leeds. I just hope Mike Newell has the nous to pick him to start!
John Welsh misses the rest of the season with a broken fibula and tibia sustained when he made a disgraceful two footed lunge against Preston at the weekend. David Livermore is expected to start the match whilst Dean Marney may be in the squad.
If Hull keep tp 4-3-3 which worked against Preston, Brown may keep the same three strikers that did well in that match. Loan signing Ricardo Vaz Te and Nick Barmby may be on the bench
In form and usually involved in anything suspect in games against the Town, so he will be worth watching for either reason. Unfortunately there will be no Kevin Nicholls to invite Dean to sit down!
