Match Pack: Luton Town v Norwich City

5 September 2020

With excitement building in the week leading up to our first competitive game of the season, we’ve been producing various previews of Saturday’s game on canaries.co.uk.

Our Match Pack - new for the 2020-21 season - is the one stop shop for all of the need to know content ahead of the weekend!

Match Preview 

“Just six weeks on from the end of the 2019-20 season, Norwich City kick off their 2020-21 campaign with a Carabao Cup first round tie at Luton Town on Saturday (3pm KO).

“Pre-season could hardly have gone better for Luton, who’ve played four, won four, scored 16 and avoided conceding any goals.”

Providing details on Luton Town, our head-to-head record with the Hatters, the referees in charge of the game and how fans can follow from home, our Match Preview is essential pre-match reading material.

Bali Mumba: Saturday is a big opportunity for the new faces

“I played them when I was at Sunderland once, so I know a little bit about them. They’re coming into the game eager to beat us, prove a point and show that they can beat us, but we just have to go into the game with the mentality that if we work harder than them then there’s no doubt we can get the win.”

We caught up with summer signing Bali Mumba at Lotus Training Centre this week to preview Luton, find out how he’s settling into life in Norwich, and see how he got on in the pre-season go-karting race!

Ask the Expert

“They would take a lower mid-table season as a success this term and then keep trying to build as a club really.

“I think he’ll be playing a strong side and looking to get through this first round.”

Having not played Luton since 2013, there’s much to catch up on! Mike Simmonds is a journalist who covers the club’s fortunes for Luton Today, so we gave him a call to find out more about the Hatters.

Memorable Match

For this week’s Memorable Match, we’ve re-wound the clock 13 years to a time when both Luton and Norwich were fighting at the wrong end of the Championship.

With three points vital to both side’s quest to avoid relegation, City’s Simon Lappin found the perfect time to score his first goal for the club with a stoppage-time free-kick in a 3-2 win at Kenilworth Road.

Let’s hope this weekend’s game is just as entertaining!
