The Hatters have only recorded one victory at Edgeley Park this season and their last home clash resulted in a 4-0 defeat to Millwall.

“The FA Cup is a wonderful and prestigious competition and like I’ve said before if you’re in a competition then you might as well go and try to win it,” said City chief Paul Lambert, speaking after today’s FA Cup first round draw. TOM HAYLETT reports.
“I think we deserved it on the balance of play – but I’m always going to say that aren’t I? I thought we showed a great hunger and desire not to get beat.” TOM HAYLETT reports after a satisfying, if tense, home victory at Carrow Road.
“Everyone is bubbling, we know we have got goals in us and we’re doing quite well so we’re just looking forward to tomorrow and hopefully getting three points.” TOM HAYLETT reports.
