Match Preview | Luton Town vs Brentford

19 April 2024

Sponsored by

The final five Premier League games of the season for Luton Town begins with Brentford at Kenilworth Road this Saturday.

Rob Edwards’ side fell to defeat at Manchester City last weekend as we sit one point inside the relegation zone.

Thomas Frank’s Bees are unbeaten in their last four games, with one win and three draws.

Prior to kick-off, there will be a period of applause in memory of our former manager Joe Kinnear.

Brentford have won four of their last eight away league games against us, having won just three of their first 27 visits in the Football League beforehand.

Since drawing 2-2 with Tottenham Hotspur at half-time in their opening Premier League game this season, Brentford haven’t scored more than once in the first half in any of their last 32 league games.

Vitaly Janelt is the only player to have played in every Premier League game for Brentford this season. Should he play in this game, he would be the first player to make 100 Premier League appearances for the Bees.

Brentford have lost both of their Premier League away games against promoted sides this season, losing 1-0 at Sheffield United and 2-1 at Burnley.


Team news

Edwards said in his press conference at the Brache on Friday that Teden Mengi is the only player who could potentially return to the matchday squad.

Luton Town Football Club has committed in its customer charter to providing safe match-day experiences for all supporters regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation, and this applies equally to home and away fixtures.

In the event that any Luton supporters do make discriminatory chants, the Club will work with the police and football authorities to help identify such individuals. Any such fans would then face the strictest club sanctions, including football banning orders that would prevent them attending any matches, in addition to any criminal charges.

The Club can also be held responsible for the behaviour of its supporters, which could lead to substantial fines being imposed.

As a diverse and inclusive football club, we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our fellow Premier League clubs in supporting the FA’s ‘Love Football. Protect the Game’ campaign and call on all fans to enjoy the game in a positive spirit.

Fan information

We would like to remind supporters to arrive at the game as early as possible to ease congestion around the stadium, at the Ticket Office and the turnstiles.

There will be additional road closures around Kenilworth Road on home matchdays.


A message from Luton Community Fire Station

Please park considerately when attending football matches at Kenilworth Road. Fire crews have been struggling recently to get around irresponsibly parked vehicles on Studley Road when attending fire calls, which has caused concerns and unnecessary restrictions over recent weeks.

Don’t park on yellow lines, these are used where street parking makes the road too narrow or blocks visibility for drivers. Parking on corners could mean that an emergency vehicle travelling on blue lights cannot see oncoming traffic round the corner.

If you park without considering passing emergency vehicles, you could prevent a life from being saved.
