History of the Luton Town v Crystal Palace fixture

Crystal Palace face a trip to Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Eagles will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 13 and win only 4 of the 25 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in November 2005, with Luton Town running out comfortable 2 - 0 winners in a Championship match.
