ACADEMY SQUAD MATCH PREVIEW: DUNSTABLE TOWN V LUTON TOWN

The Hatters take on Tony McCool's side tonight

25 July 2017

The Hatters head to Creasey Park twice this week, with their first trip tonight as they play Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division side Dunstable Town.

On Friday evening they play AFC Dunstable in the Bedfordshire FA Premier Cup final, which also takes place at the home of the two Dunstable clubs.

ANDY AWFORD SAYS:

On tonight's game: "We always look forward to playing Dunstable Town, it's always a competitive game. We got a lot out of the Kempston game at the weekend and we will be looking to continue improving as we move through pre-season as it gives the young players an opportunity to play against men which is always a difficult challenge. We look forward to it.

"They have changed their manager and changed a few players, but from our point of view, it's valuable experience for our players. We want to give our players a variety of different challenges, we don't get to play against men that often because we play in a youth league, but whenever we play against men it gives us that opportunity to test the lads differently as it presents its different challenges."

To supporters: "Come down and enjoy it, come and see some of the young talents we have got at the club. They're playing against men, but hopefully we can put on a good performance. If you can get down there and show us a bit of support, it would be lovely if we can get a few through the turnstiles."

WHO?

The Blues have undergone a lot of changes over the summer as they have a new boss in Tony McCool, as well as new ownership at the club and there has been a squad overhaul.

WHEN AND WHERE?

Kick-off is at 7:45pm tonight at Creasey Park. The address is; Creasey Park Dr, Dunstable, LU6 1BB

TICKET PRICES?

Adults: £5
Under-18s: Free (if accompanied by an adult)

LAST TIME WE PLAYED?

The Hatters last played the Blues in the Bedfordshire FA Senior Cup semi-finals last season, where Awford's side lost 3-0 at Creasey Park.
