History of the Luton Town v Watford fixture

Watford travel to take on Luton Town at Kenilworth Road at lunchtime on Monday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Hornets will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 23 and win only 7 of the 41 games.

The last time the two teams met at Luton Town was back in October 1997, over five years ago, where Watford annihilated the Hornets 0 - 4 in a League Division Two match.
