Striker Isaac Vassell was back in the Luton starting line-up for their League Two clash at Barnet this afternoon.

The in-demand forward had missed Tuesday night's 2-0 Carabao Cup exit to Ipswich Town with an illness, but has recovered sufficiently to return.

Defender Dan Potts has recovered from a dead leg, while Alan McCormack was back in the midfield as Luton reverted to the side who hammered Yeovil Town 8-2 last weekend, with new signing Harry Cornick on the bench.

For Barnet, who started with a 2-2 draw at Forest Green Rovers last weekend, they remain without the prolific John Akinde, who is sidelined with injury.
