Luton Town will send their U21 squad to face National League side Slough Town for a behind-closed-doors friendly this evening.

The young Hatters will include goalkeeper Harry Isted, plus second-year pros Tiernan Parker, Corey Panter, Jake Peck and first years Avan Jones and Sam Beckwith for the clash at Arbour Park, to face a home side managed jointly by Jon Underwood and Neil Baker.

Town will be led by Adrian Forbes, who has combined his academy role with first team coaching duties since the Championship restart in June, while Paul Benson will be assisting him tonight.

The Rebels were still in contention for automatic promotion to the National League before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, but lost their play-off eliminator to Dartford once the campaign restarted in June.

Luton's U18s played their final friendly ahead of next week's EFL Youth Alliance South-East Division kick-off at the weekend, beating Exeter 3-1 with goals from Coree Wilson, Ben Stevens and Casey Pettit.

Town squad: Harry Isted, Tiernan Parker, Avan Jones, Sam Nsumbu, Matt Moloney, Corey Panter, Sam Beckwith, Jake Peck, Tyrelle Newton, Callum Nicolson, Coree Wilson, Temi Babalola, Casey Pettit, Ben Stevens, Ed McJanett, Joe Halsey, Tra Lucas, Jameson Horlick.
