FA Cup preview | Grimsby Town (A)

Luton Town head to Blundell Park for an Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round replay against Grimsby Town.


The League Two side forced a replay following a 2-2 draw at Kenilworth Road 10 days ago with the winner set to face Premier League side Southampton in the Fifth Round on Wednesday 1st March.

Rob Edwards said:

“We’ve got this one now which I recognise is a very difficult game and a really big game that we value. Then we have a really tough week next week with three important league games again. We have to manage the group as best as possible but at the same time the message is the same – we want to win the game.”

The opposition:

Grimsby Town have beaten Plymouth Argyle, Cambridge United and Burton Albion on route to Saturday's Fourth Round tie. The League Two outfit have completed a triple scalp of League One sides and are now hoping to go one further and book a tie against Premier League outfit Southampton.

Harry Clifton scored in the last meeting and won Man of the Match as he increased his goal tally to seven goals from midfield this season.

Grimsby won 3-0 at the weekend against Crewe Alexandra in League Two but all three goalscorers - including John McAtee - aren't available to feature this evening.

Last time we met:

The two sides contested an entertaining 2-2 draw at Kenilworth Road 10 days ago. Gavan Holohan headed Grimsby in front before Elijah Adebayo responded from the penalty spot. Jordan Clark scored a brilliant goal to give Luton an advantage but the away side drew level within sixty seconds to set-up a replay.
