The Hatters turn their attention to the Emirates FA Cup action this weekend as they take on League One side Cambridge United.

After progressing past Harrogate Town last month, Town will hope to reach the fifth round for the first time since 2013.

Cambridge produced an FA Cup upset as they knocked out Premier League side Newcastle United in the previous round.

Joe Ironside scored the winner that day and has 12 goals to his name in all competitions, a striker that Town's defence will have to keep an eye on should they have ambitions of progressing. 

 

Last time we met:

The last meeting between the two sides stretches back to 2018, a 1-1 draw away at the Abbey Stadium. 

The reverse fixture that season saw the Hatters win by seven goals - with Olly Lee scoring from inside his own half and Danny Hylton bagging a hat-trick.

Highlights from that day can be found via our YouTube channel below...
