TEAM NEWS | THE HATTERS v BURTON ALBION

Nathan Jones names an unchanged team for the eighth game in a row

22 December 2018

Hatters boss Nathan Jones has named an unchanged team for the eighth successive league and FA Cup match as the Town look to extend their unbeaten home start to the Sky Bet League One season against Burton Albion this afternoon.

The Town boss has also picked the same seven players on the bench as for the last two Saturdays.

That means James Shea is in goal behind a back four of Jack Stacey, Matty Pearson, Sonny Bradley and James Justin - this week named the EFL Young Player of the Month for November.

Captain Glen Rea will anchor the midfield, with Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu, Andrew Shinnie and Elliot Lee, just behind strikers James Collins and Harry Cornick.

A win today will make it six league victories in a row for Jones' side, who have lost just once in 17 league and FA Cup matches - winning ten out of the last 11, in which they are unbeaten.

TOWN: Shea, Stacey, Pearson, Bradley, Justin, Rea (c), Mpanzu, Shinnie, Lee, Collins, Cornick. Subs: Potts, Berry, Hylton, Grant, LuaLua, Sheehan, Stech (GK)

BURTON: Collins, Brayford, Allen, Turner, Fraser, Hesketh, Akins (c), Harness, Hutchinson, Quinn, Cole. Subs: Bywater (GK), Buxton, Sbarra, Fox, McCrory, Miller, Wallace.

REFEREE: Craig Hicks
