Venue: The Ricoh Arena

Competition: SkyBet League Two

Date: Tuesday 13th March, 2018.

Kick-off: 3pm

The Sky Blues welcome Luton Town to the Ricoh Arena as Mark Robins' side look to climb back into the play-off places in SkyBet League Two.

New-signing Carl Baker could be available subject to international clearance after being released from Indian Super League side ATK. The 35-year-old made 182 appearances during his first spell scoring 28 goals.

Jodi Jones (ACL), Tom Davies (collar bone) and Toni Andreu (ACL) remain Robins' only side-lined players.

For the visitors and Lawson D'Ath remains sidelined with a knee problem with Harry Cornick in contention for a start having come off the bench against Accrington following a hamstring problem.

The Opponents

The Hatters top scorer, James Collins is back in contention after he saw out the last game in the stands following a one game suspension. The striker has 16 goals this season.

Not to be out done by Collins, his strike partner Danny Hylton is just one goal behind the striker this season, although he has played less minutes than his team mate.

At the back for Luton, Glen Rea, a man who will be familiar with the Sky Blues and Marc McNulty should start in a back four alongside skipper Alan Sheehan, Jack Stacey and Dan Potts.

Earlier This Season

The Sky Blues picked up a memorable win away at Kenilworth Road earlier in the season, as they came away with a 3-0 victory.

Marc McNulty opened the scoring and then played a key part in the second late on, as he was brought down by Glen Rea who was shown a straight red.

The resulting free-kick was taken by Jordan Shipley and he fired it into the top corner, scoring his first goal for the Sky Blues.

The game was then wrapped up deep into injury time when Duckens Nazon capped the game off.
