PRE-SEASON MATCH PREVIEW | LUTON TOWN V NOTTS COUNTY

27 July 2018

Town face Sky Bet League Two side Notts County tomorrow afternoon in their final pre-season game at Kenilworth Road, with the trip to Portsmouth and the beginning of the League One campaign just over a week away.

The Hatters will rotate the side from the one that was defeated by Championship outfit Norwich City 3-1 on Wednesday evening, having beaten Chesham United and St Albans City since their return from the training camp in Slovenia.

Notts' most recent friendly was against Premier League Leicester City, with the Foxes defeating the Magpies 4-1 at Meadow Lane.

THE GAFFER SAYS:

"At five o'clock on Saturday afternoon hopefully everyone is fit, everyone is right at it and everyone is right up to speed. That's basically what we have got to do. Get through pre-season and get up to speed, which will give us a good base for the whole season.

"It feels like it's been quite a long pre-season if I am being honest with the summer and so on. We'll be ready to go after Saturday, then we build it up, then we've got a big game at Portsmouth. We will be ready to go. I am looking forward to that stage of pre-season."

WHO?

Since our trip to Meadow Lane at the beginning of May – which was a fantastic occasion – Notts suffered their heartbreak, but have got straight back on the horse, bolstering their squad with the likes of Kristian Dennis, Kane Hemmings and Enzio Boldewijn to name a few. Players well known in the fourth tier for all the right reasons, you can understand supporters getting excited about a potentially fruitful campaign.

It has been a near fairy-tale story for Notts County the past 18 months. On the verge of relegation and potential implosion, the turn-around has been dramatic. Alan Hardy assumed control of the club in January 2017 and brought in Kevin Nolan to try and steady the ship. They comfortably avoided the drop that season and weren't too far away from joining us in the climb to third tier football.

WHEN AND WHERE?

Kick-off is at 3pm tomorrow afternoon (Saturday 28th July) at Kenilworth Road.
