Luton Town v Birmingham City - Preview

No fresh injury concerns for Luton ahead of Birmingham clash

Luton have no new problems as they prepare to host Birmingham.

James Bree is fit again and pushing for his first league start of the season after substitute appearances in the last two matches, following two months out with a knee problem.

Fellow defender Dan Potts could be included in the squad for the first time this season after finally overcoming foot and groin injuries, which have kept him out for four months.

The Hatters signed free agent Gabriel Osho last week following his release from Reading at the end of last season, but the defender is not expected to be included in manager Nathan Jones’ first-team plans at this stage.

Birmingham have players returning from injury ahead of the trip to Kenilworth Road.

Defenders Kristian Pedersen and Jake Clarke-Salter are both fit again, with Pedersen named among the substitutes against Coventry at the weekend.

Clarke-Salter, on loan from Chelsea, could make his first appearance of the season after recovering from a calf problem.

Midfielder Adam Clayton and goalkeeper Zach Jeacock (both ankle) are sidelined, while Josh McEachran (knee) has returned to training but will not be considered.

    Luton draw again as Birmingham claim battling point at Kenilworth Road

    Birmingham goalkeeper Neil Etheridge produced an inspired display as his side picked up a point in a 1-1 draw against Luton at Kenilworth Road.

    The Philippines international made a number of saves to prevent the visitors suffering a third consecutive defeat in the Championship.

    Lukas Jutkiewicz had given the Blues the lead from the spot but Matty Pearson levelled in the 37th minute for Luton, who recorded a third straight 1-1 draw.

    Etheridge had to punch Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s corner away early on, before Luke Berry’s cross glanced wide by recalled Luton striker James Collins.

    After being second best, Blues took the lead in the 23rd minute when Maxime Colin’s cross was handled by the outstretched arm of a sliding Elliot Lee. Striker Jutkiewicz arrowed the spot-kick beyond Simon Sluga with ease for the 100th league goal of his career.

    Dewsbury-Hall went for the spectacular, missing the target from 25 yards, while visiting midfielder Ivan Sunjic saw his ambitious attempt fly into the stands.

    Lee’s low drive was comfortably gathered by Etheridge at his near post, as the keeper then had to acrobatically tip over Pelly Ruddock’s cross deflected his way by visiting skipper Harlee Dean.

    From the corner, Luton were level. Berry’s set-piece was met by Glen Rea and full-back Matty Pearson swivelled to fire goalwards and finally beat Etheridge, who could only parry it against a post and over the line.

    Pearson went for a second, shooting over the bar from 25 yards, while in the second period, Berry’s attempt was cleared off the line.

    Chances came and went for both sides in what was a thoroughly entertaining 45 minutes of football, Collins beating his man but not Etheridge, who parried well, with Jutkiewicz sending two efforts wide, one with Sunjic in a far better position.

    Ruddock’s tame shot bobbled through to Etheridge, but the keeper should have been left picking the ball out of the net after 72 minutes but somehow dived to his left to save Collins’ effort from a matter of yards after Dewsbury-Hall’s pinpoint cross.

    The keeper then denied Jordan Clark, flipping his 18-yard effort over the bar as the City defence backed off, while Collins then had another great chance blocked from close range.

    After being under the cosh for large periods, Blues could have won it themselves in the closing stages.

    First, Jeremie Bela volleyed straight at Sluga after being left unmarked at the far post, before Town’s keeper produced a wonderful save of his own to deny Sunjic when the midfielder went clean through in stoppage time.
