One change for the Hatters at Highbury as Moncur comes in for the injured Berry

16 February 2019

Hatters boss Mick Harford has made one enforced change to his starting line-up as the Town look to set a club record of 20 EFL games without defeat in this afternoon's Sky Bet League One game at Fleetwood Town.

Coming in to the midfield at the tip of the diamond, following his two-goal substiutute's performance against Wycombe last week, is George Moncur.

The January signing from Barnsley replaces Luke Berry, who is kept out by the hamstring niggle that forced him off late in the second half of last Saturday's 3-0 win.

The other changes are on the bench, where Elliot Lee returns to the matchday squad after missing the last five games through injury, and Kazenga LuaLua comes back after being absent last Saturday with a tight hamstring.

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

Alan McCormack anchors the midfield with Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu and Andrew Shinnie either side of him and Moncur at the tip of the diamond, behind a front two of 19-goal top scorer James Collins and Danny Hylton.

 

TOWN: Shea, Stacey, Pearson, Bradley (c), Justin, McCormack, Mpanzu, Shinnie, Moncur, Collins, Hylton. Subs: Potts, Lee, Cummings, Thorne, LuaLua, Sheehan, Isted.

FLEETWOOD: Cairns, Coyle, Holt, Eastham (c), Burns, Souttar, Wallace, Husband, Sowerby, Madden, Evans. Subs: Morgan, Hunter, Nadesan, Biggins, Sheron, Garner, Jones (GK)

REFEREE: Peter Bankes
