Luton Town have announced a second friendly for tonight (Tuesday, July 29).

John Still has agreed to send a strong Town squad to Boreham Wood - at the same time the club is also hosting Colchester United at Kenilworth Road.

It means the Town squad will be split between the two games.

Connolly, Franks, Wilkinson, Lawless, Wall, Cullen, Robinson and Guttridge will be playing in the Colchester fixtures whilst Williams, McNulty, Whalley, Howells, Rooney, Drury and Benson will head to Boreham Wood.

A club statement said: “With the unfortunate cancellation of two of our pre-season games interrupting our preparation, Boreham Wood have kindly agreed to host a strong Town squad on Tuesday to be played simultaneously with our home tie against Colchester.

“This fixture will allow John Still the opportunity to provide his squad with the game minutes that would be missed due to the cancellations.

“The reason for including this fixture into our pre-season schedule is because it is vital that our entire squad is 100% match fit and integrated into our team fully before the start of the new season.

“We understand that this is not an ideal situation for Town supporters and would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused to you but thank you for your understanding.”
