Striker Paul Benson makes his return for Luton Town in their Final Third Development League clash against Southend United at Kenilworth Road this afternoon.

The 36-year-old hasn’t played for Luton since the 1-1 draw against Premier League side Stoke City in the Capital One Cup due to a neck injury.

He has been named in a strong side to play their League One opponents though, with the likes of Danny Green, Scott Griffiths, Mark O’Brien, Jake Howells and Ryan Hall, who was sent off against Plymouth Argyle at the weekend, all featuring.

Hatters: Elliot Justham; Andy Parry, Scott Griffiths, Frankie Musonda, Mark O’Brien; James Justin, Danny Green, Jake Howells, Ryan Hall; Paul Benson, Zane Banton.
