The Hatters will be looking to bounce back on Tuesday evening when they face Nottingham Forest in the Sky Bet Championship.

QPR inflicted a second successive defeat on the Hatters Friday night meaning Nathan Jones' side are now five points off the play-off places, a gap they will look to reduce at the City Ground.

One point and two places separate Town and their counterparts heading into Tuesday’s fixture after Nottingham Forest extended their unbeaten run to four matches with a 1-1 draw against Reading on Saturday.

Following the dismissal of Chris Hughton after a difficult start, former Swansea manager Steve Cooper has steadied the ship with the Reds now six points away from the play-off places.

 

Last time we met:

Ryan Tunnicliffe scored the only goal in an impressive 1-0 away win at the City Ground last season.
