Luton Town v Norwich City - Preview

Injured Dan Potts missing for Luton against weakened Norwich

Luton will be without Dan Potts when they welcome relegated Norwich to Kenilworth Road in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

The defender will miss the start of the new season after sustaining an unspecified injury which manager Nathan Jones described as “comedy”.

Summer signings Jordan Clark, James Bree and Rhys Norrington-Davies are expected to feature but fellow new-boy Tom Lockyer is on international duty with Wales.

Luton knocked Norwich, then a Premier League side featuring a certain Harry Kane up front, out of the FA Cup at the third-round stage when they last met in January 2013.

Norwich will be without at least 15 players due to international duty, suspension and injury.

Tim Krul, Teemu Pukki, Max Aarons, Todd Cantwell, Ben Godfrey, Adam Idah, Jamal Lewis, Michael McGovern, Kenny McLean and Danel Sinani are representing their respective countries as are new signings Przemyslaw Placheta, Jacob Sorensen and Oliver Skipp.

Playmaker Emi Buendia serves the second of a three-match ban after his dismissal in the penultimate game of last season against Burnley while defender Sam Byram will miss the start of the new campaign after further surgery on his hamstring.

Academy keeper Daniel Barden, who featured on the pre-season tour of Germany, is expected to make his debut in the absence of Krul and McGovern, with Jordan Hugill leading the attack following his recent switch from West Ham.

    Daniel Farke rues absence of international stars as Norwich suffer Luton loss

    The Canaries were beaten 3-1 in the Carabao Cup first round.

    Norwich head coach Daniel Farke admitted his side missed their international players after crashing out of the Carabao Cup following a 3-1 defeat at Luton.

    The Canaries were without 15 players at Kenilworth Road, including Finland striker Teemu Pukki as they were beaten by a James Collins' hat-trick in the final 16 minutes.

    Farke said: "We knew today was for some of them a good chance to shine and you hope they take the chance.

    "But after such a game you say, we need the best players back, we need the 15 international players back to achieve our targets.

    "I feel a bit sorry for the lads who couldn't grab the chance, we have to work on it and one day they will be ready.

    "They did perform a bit better in the second half, for some of them it's a reality check on how difficult it is to be competitive at Championship level as they were a proper Championship side.

    "They went to win the game and you have to be good to get points at this level, so we will have to fight unbelievably hard.

    "The penalty was never a situation where they should get a penalty, but we reacted quite well, scored an equaliser.

    "Then the second situation we lost an easy one v one, then we didn't defend the crossing situation and then we weren't switched on in the centre, these are mistakes we made."

    Town striker Collins grabbed his first from the penalty spot after 79 minutes when Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu was fouled by Mario Vrancic, before Norwich's summer signing from Everton Kieran Dowell equalised for the Canaries two minutes later.

    However, Collins was on target again within 60 seconds, volleying home via a slight deflection from inside the area, to make it 2-1. He then converted substitute Jordan Clark's unselfish cross from close range to complete his treble and send Town through.

    Hatters boss Nathan Jones said: "For him to get a hat-trick in the first game of the season is fantastic as he's someone we think a lot of.

    "I thought we were excellent from start to finish.

    "They've had a few players missing but they still had a fantastically strong side and we were excellent in terms of our shape and our press.

    "We could have been better first half, but then we looked the more dangerous side and I'm really pleased.

    "There are things we can improve on all-round as this was our fifth pre-season game against the highest ranked opposition, but it was an excellent defensive performance

    "We wanted to win the game, it was as strong a test as we could have had and we feel like we are ready now."
