Luton Town vs Gillingham match preview

When Luton Town won the Championship play-off final back in May, ending their 31-year exile from the top division, this was hardly the home-opener they were dreaming of, but here we are.

So far, the Hatters have played two Premier League away games, as Kenilworth Road underwent mandatory renovation works.

The scale of the task facing Rob Edwards’ side has been made clear by these two matches, with Luton swatted aside 4-1 by Brighton on opening day, before a 3-0 defeat at Chelsea on Friday night.

This forthcoming Friday night, Kenilworth Road will host top-flight football again for real, with West Ham United the visitors, and the atmosphere at that one is going to be off the scale.

Before then, can the Hatters claim a morale-boosting victory in this Carabao Cup tie?

Visitors Gillingham meantime ply their trade in League Two, starting this season with four successive victories before a 3-0 home defeat against Colchester United on Saturday.

Neil Harris’ side beat Southampton 3-1 in the first round earlier this month, having also reached the fourth round of this competition just last season, ousting Premier League Brentford on penalties en route.

So, can Gillingham cause an upset, thereby claiming their first victory in Luton since 1969?
