Boss Jones picks strong side to face former club

Hatters boss Nathan Jones has selected a strongest side yet of the Checkatrade Trophy run as his former club Yeovil visit Kenilworth Road for the delayed quarter-final clash.

There are five changes to the starting line-up that faced Grimsby in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday.

One is enforced, with on-loan Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Macey coming in for fellow loanee Stuart Moore, who has played twice already in the competition for parent club Reading, ironically against the Glovers.

Johnny Mullins comes into defence as the four-game League suspension he is three-quarters of the way through does not apply to the Trophy, with Stephen O'Donnell and Alan Sheehan joining him in Jones' backline.

And Jonathan Smith returns to midfield after missing the trip to Grimsby with a foot injury to maintain his ever-present record in the competition. Isaac Vassell is the only other player who has started all six games.

TOWN: Macey, O'Donnell, Mullins, Sheehan (c), Senior, Rea, J Smith, Mpanzu, Cook, Hylton, Vassell. Subs: Cuthbert, Gray, Marriott, Lee, Gambin, Justin, King (GK).

YEOVIL: Maddison, N Smith, Dolan, Mugabi, Dawson, Eaves, Dickson, Zoko, Butcher, Whitfield, Harrison. Subs: Krysiak, Sowunmi, Goodship, James.
