Luton Town turn their attention back to league action and face a long trip to the Riverside Stadium to take on Middlesbrough.

Saturday's meeting will be a real test for Nathan Jones' side against another play-off hopeful who are currently two points and two places below Luton in the Sky Bet Championship table. 


The opposition:


After midweek success against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup, confidence will be high in the Middlesbrough camp as they look to return to winning ways in the league. 

It was defeat last time out for Chris Wilder's side against struggling Barnsley but prior to that, had picked up form in the league, with two wins and a draw from their last five matches. 


Last time we met:

The Hatters scored three goals within five sensational minutes to stage a brilliant second half comeback to beat Middlesbrough at Kenilworth Road. 

Josh Coburn had put the away side in front before Sonny Bradley, Elijah Adebayo and Harry Cornick all found the back of the net in quick succession.
