Match preview: Owls v Luton

4 January 2019

Wednesday turn their attention to the FA Cup on Saturday with a third round clash against League One side Luton at Hillsborough (12.30pm).

The Owls head into the cup unbeaten in four after a productive Christmas period.

The Hatters, meanwhile, have enjoyed an outstanding league campaign so far.

Nathan Jones’ side are currently second in the division and are unbeaten in the league since mid-October, a run that stretches back 14 games.

Luton have defeated Wycombe (2-0) and Bury (0-1) en route to the third round.

Team news

Owls: Wednesday have no fresh injury or suspension concerns following the 1-1 draw with Birmingham on New Year’s Day.

Luton: Full back Dan Potts (groin) and goalkeeper Marek Stech (stomach muscle) are doubts for the Hatters.

Forward Harry Cornick was substituted in Luton’s 0-0 draw with Barnsley on New Year’s Day with an ankle injury and will be assessed ahead of the game.
