Hatters boss Nathan Jones has made two changes from the team that played so well in the 1-0 defeat at Portsmouth last week.
Striker Danny Hylton returns to the starting line-up to face Sunderland after serving the one-match suspension that hung over from the final game of last season, with Harry Cornick dropping to the bench, while Jack Stacey comes in at right-back in place of James Justin.
Summer signings Matty Pearson and Jorge Grant make their home debuts, while the third new-boy – Sonny Bradley – is on the bench.
