Luton Town v Cambridge United - 7.45pm
The Town and Cambridge go toe-to-toe for the second time in three days with the winners on the night advancing to the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy.
Entry is just £10 for adults and £5 for under-21s and over-65s at Kenilworth Road with admission also available on the turnstile.
A trip to Skrill South promotion chasers Eastleigh is the prize for the victors this evening – with a result guaranteed on the night. If the score is level after 90 minutes there will be 30 minutes of extra-time and, if the scores are still tied, a penalty shootout will decide the winners.
The Hatters are likely to field a similar team to the one which earned a 2-2 draw with the U’s on Saturday, with the exception of Jake Howells who will be rested following the Town’s recent busy festive schedule.
United boss, ex-Town chief Richard Money, is also likely to change things around following Saturday’s meeting, with Ashley Chambers in line to start after his goalscoring exploits on his debut at the weekend.
The Hatters will be aiming to protect an unbeaten home record in the FA Trophy which stretches for 12 matches. The Town have won nine and drawn three, scoring 23 and conceding just three. Two of the three draws resulted in the Hatters’ exit from the competition, as 1-1 draws with Mansfield and York saw the Hatters bow out on aggregate at the semi-final stage. Tonight the Town will be aiming to book their place in the quarter-final of FA Trophy for the fourth successive season.
Cambridge, meanwhile, have a good record when it comes to cup ties at Kenilworth Road having won their last two cup ties on Bedfordshire soil. A solitary goal from Steve Claridge earned the U’s a 1-0 League Cup win in 1993, whilst in 2002 a certain Luke Guttridge scored an golden goal extra-time winner for United in an LDV Vans Trophy tie.
