Match Preview | Swansea City (A)

Luton Town head to the stadium on Saturday afternoon for the second away trip of the week.


Nathan Jones' side suffered a second successive defeat in midweek against Bristol City, with a first victory of the season still proving elusive four matches into the campaign.

The manager admitted after Tuesday night: "We have to go back to what we're good at, if we don’t then we will lose football matches. I have never gone four league games at this football club without winning a game so that is something new. We all have to learn, we all have to get better and we will."

The opposition:

Swansea City currently find themselves in the bottom half of the Sky Bet Championship having lost a two-goal lead against Millwall in midweek.

They have won once in the league so far this season - beating Blackpool 1-0 away from home courtesy of a late Oliver Ntcham goal.

Striker Michael Obafemi assisted him on that occasion and he followed it with a goal in the 2-2 draw against Millwall. He scored 12 times in the league last season, whilst his strike partner Joel Piroe had 22 goals to his name in his debut campaign in English football.

Last time we met:

The Hatters moved to within three points of the Sky Bet Championship play-offs with a terrific 1-0 win at Swansea back in February.

Harry Cornick netted his first goal since returning from injury, and his eighth of the season, to secure all three points for the relentless Hatters.
