IT’S back on the FA Cup trail on Saturday as Steve Castle’s Saints head to Blue Square Premier big-boys Luton Town

THE LOWDOWN: Luton Town were the biggest name City could have drawn in this round of the Cup. The Hatters were runners up in the competition in 1958/59 and Saturday’s clash will be a big test for the Saints.

Luton currently sit third in the Blue Square Premier five points behind leaders AFC Wimbledon and promotion back to the Football League will most definitely be the club’s priority this season.

THE MANAGER: Richard Money has been Luton boss since October 2009 leading the Hatters to last season’s Blue Square Premier play-offs where they succumbed to York City.

Money enjoyed great success in a brief stint at Walsall where he lead the Saddlers to the League 2 title and has also been involved in the youth academy at Newcastle United.

PLAYERS TO WATCH: Andy Drury made a surprise switch to Kenilworth Road from last season’s Blue Square Premier champions Stevenage and has become an important player for the Hatters.

Excellent technically, Drury has also chipped in with his fair share of goals and he will have to be watched carefully should he feature against the Saints.

LAST TIME: This will be the first time the two sides have met in a competitive fixture.

For those of you who are unable to make it to Kenilworth Road on Saturday, you can keep up with the action via our CITYLIVE service which will start at around 2.30pm.
