'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Exeter City vs. Luton Town

St James Park

Saturday 30 August

FlyBe v EasyJet air race

With a win, a draw and a defeat in League Two, City face a Luton side with an identical record.

City, however, had the advantage of starting on nil.

Vital Quotes:

City's young skipper Danny Seaborne told the Express & Echo: 'Luton are a good team. They'd be on the same points as us if they hadn't had the points deduction.

'It's going to be a really tough game and one we're all looking forward to. Everyone is confident.'

He also issued a rallying cry to the City faithful, saying: 'The fans have been brilliant this season. The away support we had at Bournemouth was really loud and hopefully we'll get another good turnout. They can really help us push on.'

Luton boss Mick Harford praised his side's defence ahead of the trip to Devon, boasting: 'If you take out the Reading game (a 5-1 defeat) we have only let in one goal in the last three games and that was a penalty, so I've been delighted with our defending.'

Thanks Mick. If you take out the Great Fire of London, Thomas Farynor's bakery in Pudding Lane had a near-perfect safety record...

Exeter City Team News:

City have no fresh absentees, with Craig McAllister - sent off in midweek in a reserve game at Plymouth - available for selection. Dean Moxey played a blinder at Dean Moxey Court, so he's in contention for a start.

Player to watch: George Friend

Of the City players linked with possible pre-transfer window moves away from the Park, we think George might be the most likely to attract an offer that City can't refuse. As such, we'll be hoping for a big display from our young left back today.

Luton Town Team News:

Luton have no new injury worries, but two players - Dean Morgan and Stephen O'Leary - have left for Orient and Hereford respectively.

Player to watch: Chris Martin

Chris Martin, on-loan from Norwich, could be a handful. He's a former Engalnd Under 19 striker, so he has the pedigree, and he's also banned from a bunch of pubs for brawling. A frightening combination of skill and stupidity. 'Hey Chris. Look at the stars...'

Anorak Corner

Aside from the odd friendly, this is only Luton's second visit to the Park since the swinging sixties.

Their last visit in 2001 was a 2-2 draw. Matthew Taylor, who joined Bolton for 3.5 million this summer, scored both the Luton goals. Steve Flack, who didn't get a multi-million pound move, netted for City.

Match Prediction:

After a midweek Carling Cup drubbing, Luton may be keeping it tight. And with City liable to drop into a 4-5-1 formation, a goal-less draw is a distinct possibility.

Next Fixtures:

On Tuesday it's Shrewsbury in the Paint Pot, with cheap admission and kids go free.
