Forest Green V Luton at The New Lawn : Match Preview

14 December 2017
Forest Green disciplinary issues leave Mark Cooper with selection headaches

Forest Green boss Mark Cooper has to juggle his squad again at home to Sky Bet League Two leaders Luton.

Manny Monthe's sending-off in the FA Cup defeat at Exeter in midweek was the fourth red card that Rovers have received in as many games.

Monthe - who was dismissed in his previous appearance last month - starts a two-game ban, while Dale Bennett completes a three-match suspension.

But West Brom loanee Jack Fitzwater is available to bolster the defence after serving a one-match ban.

Luton will have striker Harry Cornick available again after he recovered from a hamstring strain.

Cornick has missed the last three games but is in contention to play, along with James Collins who has overcome a leg injury.

Scott Cuthbert (groin) and Alan McCormack (hernia) are both, however, sidelined for the Hatters.

Luton sit top of League Two on goal difference.
