Barnet vs Luton by Hassy

Barnet
VS
Luton
Both these sides were involved in goals in the first week of League 2. Barnet managed to secure a 2-2 draw at the Football League new boys Forest Green and Luton, well, I don't think much needs to be said about their 8-2 home win over Yeovil. Barnet has so far managed to keep hold of their prolific and regular goalscorer that is John Akinde. It is worth noting that Barnet managed to score their double in the absence of their main man but now he is fit expect him to go straight into the starting line up. Barnet are in their third season back in the EFL after succeeding the Hatters as Conference champions in 2014-15, and will be hoping to improve on last term’s 15th place finish.

 

They are now managed on a permanent basis by the youngest manager in the EFL in Rossi Eames. The Bees started the season with a point at Forest Green last week, fighting back from 2-0 down to earn a 2-2 draw, then they shocked League One Peterborough in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night, winning 3-1 at London Road to book a second round trip to Premier League new-boys Brighton.

 

Jack Taylor has served his one match suspension following his red card at Forest Green Rovers. Richard Brindley his still out (foot) whilst Curtis Weston (calf) and John Akinde (knee) are recovering.

 

The Hatters look to build on the record-breaking opening day win over Yeovil tomorrow when they make the short trip to Barnet for the second game of the Sky Bet League Two campaign.

 

Nathan Jones and his side suffered their first defeat of the campaign in midweek, going down 2-0 to Championship side Ipswich Town in the Carabao Cup.Luton have spent some money again this season and their strikers are just too hot for this level. James Collins' debut hat-trick after his transfer from Crawley showed they mean business after losing out in the play-offs last year. Harry Cornick could be given a debutafter he joined from Bournemouth last week but Danny Hylton and James Justin will be struggling to be passed fit in time to travel. The Hatters came through the game against Ipswich unscathed and will be hoping to have one or two coming back, so they will not be far off full strength. Dan Potts and Isaac Vassell both trained today (Thursday) so providing they don’t have any adverse reaction then they will be in the squad.

 

This game will see goals in both ends and the odds are on offer are very good.
