They currently find themselves at the top of the table, four points clear of Notts County.

Nathan Jones’ men have scored the most goals in the league and have conceded 19 in their 24 games played.

Danny Hylton has been the star performer for Luton as he leads the top goalscoring ranks with 14 so far. Manchester City are the only side in the Football League that have scored more than them.

 

Talk

Neil Aspin: “We have had the hardest run of games with still the top two to play. Luton will be a big test, but I feel a lot better going into that game with the run that we are on.”

Nathan Jones: “Port Vale is a massive game for us. It’s been a crazy schedule, but we have had a good Christmas period.”

 

Team News
