The Hatters are unchanged for a fifth game in a row this afternoon as they bid to book a place in the Emirates FA Cup third round draw with victory at Bury.

Manager Nathan Jones has decided against making any alterations to the line-up that has won four matches in a row in the Cup and League One, scoring 14 goals in the process against Wycombe (2-0), Plymouth (5-1), Gillingham (3-1) and Bradford (4-0).

That means James Shea is in goal behind a back four of Jack Stacey, Matty Pearson, Sonny Bradley and James Justin.

Glen Rea captains the side from the midfield anchor role, with Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu and Andrew Shinnie just behind 10-goal top scorer Elliot Lee, who has netted seven times in as many matches and five in his last three.

James Collins and Harry Cornick lead the line, with the only change coming on the bench where Kazenga LuaLua returns after missing the last two matches, replacing Jorge Grant.


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

BURY: Murphy, Stokes, Thompson, O'Connell, Adams, Mayor, Moore, McFadzean, O'Shea, Danns (c), Maynard. Subs: Moloney, Miller, Aimson, Dawson, Dagnall, Telford, Lavery.

REFEREE: Thomas Bramall
