Luton Town have announced their pre-season schedule for the 2015-16 campaign which includes a home fixture against Championship play-off hopefuls Brentford.

The Bees, who signed Luton striker Andre Gray before the start of this season, could be a Premier League side by the time the game comes around, as they take on Middlesbrough in the play-off semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Hatters will also host two League One sides in Coventry City and Walsall, plus visiting the likes of Gosport Borough, Boreham Wood, Hitchin Town and Dunstable Town.

Luton also confirmed they had hoped to pay a reciprocal return visit to Royal Antwerp following their visit to Kenilworth Road last summer.

However, a statement on the club’s official website said: “Unfortunately the Belgian club are currently facing some severe financial difficulties and are unable to host the Hatters in 2015.

“We do remain in touch with them, however, and hopeful we are able to rekindle our friendship when they are on their financial feet again.”
