Match Preview | Hull City (A)

Luton Town return to action on Friday night as they travel to Hull City as the Sky Bet Championship resumes following the international break.


Victory at the MKM Stadium could take the Hatters into the play-off positions as Nathan Jones' side look to build on their two-match unbeaten streak.

The opposition:

Hull have lost their last four matches in a row and will be looking to get back to winning ways on Friday night.

After a positive start to the campaign, Shota Arveladze's side currently find themselves in 20th position, one point above the drop zone.

They do however, have the league's top scorer in their ranks - Oscar Estupinan. The Colombian international arrived at the MKM Stadium this summer after leaving Portugese side Vitória Guimarães SC. With two braces and a hat-trick against Coventry City, the 25-year-old is someone the Hatters will have to be at their very best to stop.

Last time we met:

The Hatters moved up to third in the Sky Bet Championship with a 3-1 win over Hull in March.

Elijah Adebayo opened the scoring, before Harry Cornick doubled Town's lead and James Bree scored a superb free-kick to round-off a brilliant performance as Nathan Jones' side continued their play-off push.

Ticket information:

All remaining tickets are on general sale until midday on Thursday 29th September. Supporters with a previous purchase history can buy tickets in person, online or by phone.

For those travelling by car, the advice is to use car parks in and around the city centre (please check local signage for charges and terms & conditions) or use the Priory Park & Ride.
