Luton to check on fitness of trio for Stoke clash

Luton will check on the fitness of Izzy Brown, Kazenga LuaLua and captain Sonny Bradley ahead of the visit of Stoke.

The trio have all missed the last two matches through illness, in Brown’s case, and minor knocks and Hatters boss Graeme Jones will hope to have them back in contention this weekend.

Danny Hylton continues to ease his way back from a knee injury and got a few more minutes under his belt as a late substitute during the home win against Brentford on Tuesday night.

Callum McManaman is also fit again after a hamstring strain as bottom-of-the-table Luton look for a fourth victory in five Championship matches.

Stoke arrive at Kenilworth Road just five points ahead of their opponents in the standings and manager Michael O’Neill might be tempted to name an unchanged team.

The Potters earned a very creditable point in midweek from a goalless draw away at Blackburn, where the only change saw Nathan Collins replace James Chester in defence.

Captain Ryan Shawcross is back in training but the game is expected to come too soon for him to be involved, while James McClean, Thibaud Verlinden and Stephen Ward all remain sidelined.

Liam Lindsay is set to return to contention soon following his recent injury setback.
