Match Preview: Barnet v Luton Town

Barnet v Luton Town

Sky Bet League Two

The Hive

Monday 28th March 2016

Kick Off: 15:00

Barnet: The Bees will be hoping to finish the Easter period with victory at The Hive, as Martin Allen’s men try to put together a run of form during the final weeks of the season. Barnet have enjoyed mixed fortunes in recent months, but highlights have included wins against Portsmouth (1-0), Plymouth Argyle (1-0), and on the road against Newport County (3-0).

Luton Town: Luton go into this match on a good run of form, having won five of their previous six games. Their only defeat in that time was a 1-0 loss to Crawley Town in mid-March. That run pushed Luton up to 3rd in the form table, ahead of the Easter fixtures. They are also the fourth best side on the road this season, having accrued 33 points from 19 away matches.

In The Dugout:  Nathan Jones is currently enjoying his first season in the managerial hot seat, having held a number of coaching roles over the past seven years. The former defender made over 150 league appearances for both Brighton & Hove Albion and Yeovil Town. He became Assistant Manager at Huish Park in 2009, before spending time as Charlton Athletic’s Under 21s coach. Jones worked at Brighton as assistant manager, caretaker, and first-team coach, before being appointed Luton manager in January of this year.

Dangermen: Both of the Hatters top scorers arrived at Kenilworth Road from East Anglian clubs ahead of this season.  Jack Marriott has 13 goals in all competitions, having joined from Ipswich Town in the summer. The forward graduated from the Tractor Boys youth academy before making three appearances for Mick McCarthy’s side. Marriott enjoyed a handful of loan spells while at Ipswich, the most productive of which was with Woking – the 21-year-old scored 13 goals in 24 appearances. 

Cameron McGeehan has struck 12 times this campaign, since his move to Bedfordshire. The former Norwich City midfielder never made a senior appearance for the Canaries, but had been on loan at Luton on two previous occasions before his permanent transfer last year. McGeehan, 20, has also represented Northern Ireland at Under 17, Under 19 and Under 21 level.

Last Meeting: Barnet succumbed to a 2-0 defeat at Kenilworth Road earlier this season. A first half strike from Danny Green set the Hatters on their way to victory, before Cameron McGeehan’s 67th minute goal made sure of all three points. You can read the report from that match here.
