The Hatters are back in action following the conclusion of the international break as they face Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Sat in 12th position with five games gone, Nathan Jones’ side travel to Ewood Park looking to win away from home for the second match in succession, having secured victory against Barnsley last time they were on the road.

Blackburn are a point better off and two places higher coming into the weekend’s match, having claimed two wins and two draws from their opening fixtures.

They have scored and conceded in every league and cup match thus far, which could lead to an exciting encounter at Ewood Park.

 

Last time we met:

Nathan Jones admitted he felt ‘physically sick’ after a late defeat against Blackburn when the two sides last went to battle. 

The Hatters were on the right side of the result when fans were last permitted inside the stadium however, thanks to goals from James Collins and Matty Pearson.
