Luton Town V Swindon Town - Four Storylines

We've Picked Out A Number Of Things To Watch Out For On Saturday

8 September 2017

Swindon Town will be looking to get back on track and return to winning ways when they make the trip to Luton Town on Saturday (3pm Kick-Off).

We've picked out four key storylines to keep an eye out for at Kenilworth Road tomorrow...

AWAY COMFORTS: 

Town have endured a difficult start to the season at home but it has been a different story on the road with two wins from their first two Sky Bet League Two away games. 

Dave Flitcroft's side opened the new campaign with a superb 2-1 victory away at Carlisle United, before producing a professional display to take the spoils at Morecambe last month.

And the Reds will be hoping to keep that 100% record going tomorrow as they look to get the better of a fellow promotion hopeful. 

TIMI TIME:

Timi Elsnik's performance on his Town debut was a rare bright point from last Saturday's 4-1 defeat to Barnet.

The midfielder, who joined on a season-long loan from Derby County alongside Kellan Gordon on Deadline Day, was thrown in at the deep end against The Bees and he certainly showed flashes of his quality. 

Calm on the ball, able to spot a pass and with a real hunger to be involved in the thick of the action, the Slovenian U19 international already looks to be a shrewd signing and he'll be keen to impress once again on Saturday should he be given the chance.

RETURN OF THE MULLS?

With Donal McDermott suspended and having impressed off the bench last weekend, Paul Mullin could be handed a recall to the Starting XI against Luton. 

The former Morecambe striker has made a fine start to life at SN1, capping off a number of committed and energetic displays with three goals to his name. 

Mullin certainly adds a different dimension to the Town attack and he could well be trusted to lead the charge against The Hatters tomorrow. 

 

THIRD TIME'S THE CHARM:

Town should be confident heading into tomorrow's showdown having beaten Luton in their last two league outings. 

Lee Peackock and Craig Easton were on the scoresheet in a 2-1 win at The County Ground in August 2007, while a Christian Roberts goal was enough to clinch the three points at Kenilworth Road in January 2008. 

In-fact, The Reds were also victorious on their last visit to Kenilworth Road with a Michael Smith brace securing passage through to the Second Round of the League Cup in 2014.

Will it be a case of third time's a charm for Town tomorrow? 

Let's hope so!
