Luton Town will travel to Plymouth Argyle on the opening day of the Sky Bet EFL League Two campaign on Saturday, August 6 after the fixtures were announced this morning.

Home Park has been a happy hunting ground for the Hatters since their return to the Football League, as they have recorded back-to-back 1-0 wins over the Pilgrims, who lost in the play-offs last season.

Town’s first home game is against manager Nathan Jones’ old side Yeovil Town on Saturday, August 13, while they who relegated Colchester United on Boxing Day, with a trip to Portsmouth kicking off 2017 on January 2.

For the second year running, Luton will visit Carlisle United in midweek on Tuesday, March 14, while Jones’ side also face midweek games at both Hartlepool United (September 27) and Newport County (February 28).

Luton end their season at home though, as they entertain Morecambe on Saturday, May 6.
