The most common result in the 32 previous meetings between the two clubs is the draw, with 14 games ending all square.

Mark Cullen’s injury-time equaliser in the two sides’ last meeting helped the Hatters maintain a 15-point advantage over United in the race to the Conference title last March. The Town would eventually finish 19 points clear of the U’s, but Money’s men ended their campaign victorious by winning promotion through the Play-Offs.
