Luton vs Gillingham lineups

Luton

It's important to point out that Luton have played two matches so far this season, and they lost both of them. The newly-promoted Premier League side are currently on a five-match winless streak, and have lost three games in a row. Rob Edwards will hope to steer his team back on course as they host Gillingham on Tuesday. There are no new players sidelined for the hosts.

Predicted lineups: Kaminski, Kaboré, Burke, Lockyer, Bell, Giles, Chong, Nakamba, Barkley, Adebayo, Morris.

Gillingham

On the other hand, Gillingham will have to do without Ethan Coleman, who was sent off in last weekend's 3-0 loss to Colchester United. The League Two side have enjoyed some fine form lately, winning six of their last seven matches; it'll be interesting to see if they can bounce back from their recent loss as they pay a visit to Kenilworth Road.

Predicted lineups: Turner, Alexander, Ehmer, Ogie, Malone, Dieng, Williams, Mahoney, Jonathan, Nichols, Nadesan.

Starting lineups

*Lineups will be automatically updated shortly after they're announced.

Player to watch: Ashley Nadesan

Ashley Nadesan joined Gillingham from Crawley Town last month; he has proven to be one of the club's best players since then. The 28 year old has played six matches for the League Two side so far, scoring three times; he also found the net in the previous round vs Southampton. It's worth keeping an eye out for Nadesan.
