Danny Hylton makes his return to the Hatters' starting line-up for the first time in nine weeks as manager Nathan Jones makes two changes for this afternoon's Sky Bet League One clash with Walsall at Kenilworth Road.

Also coming back into the team from kick-off is Andrew Shinnie, who returns to the Town midfield in place of James Justin. Harry Cornick is the man to make way for Hylton to make his 96th appearance for the club today.

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

Glen Rea captains the side from the midfield holding role, with Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu, Shinnie and Jorge Grant making up the engine room, behind a front two of Hylton and James Collins, who is the Town's joint top scorer this term with four goals coming in his last four matches.

There is also a welcome return to the bench for the other man on four goals, Elliot Lee, after injury kept him out of last week's game at his former club Barnsley.


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

WALSALL: Roberts, Leahy, Dobson (c), Guthrie, Devlin, Cook, Ismail, Ginnelly, Kinsella, Ferrier, Fitzwater. Subs: Morris, Dunn (GK), Wilson, Gordon, Osbourne, Ronan.

REFEREE: Andy Woolmer
