Luton boss Nathan Jones has chosen an unchanged side from the 1-0 win over Reading on Saturday for tonight’s Championship play-off semi-final first leg against Huddersfield Town.

It means that for the third game running, top scorer Elijah Adebayo wasn't included, despite undergoing cryotherapy treatment during the week in a bid to get fit.

There was a single alteration on the bench for the Hatters as defender Peter Kioso came in for attacker Admiral Muskwe.

Huddersfield welcomed Lewis O'Brien back into the side from their 2-0 victory against Bristol City, with Welsh international Sorba Thomas fit enough for the bench.

Hatters: Matt Ingram, James Bree, Reece Burke, Sonny Bradley ©, Kal Nasmith, Amari'i Bell, Henri Lansbury, Allan Campbell, Jordan Clark, Cameron Jerome, Harry Cornick.

Subs: Harry Isted, Dan Potts, Tom Lockyer, Carlos Mendes Gomes, Danny Hylton, Peter Kioso, Robert Snodgrass.
