Luton celebra la histórica victoria sobre Norwich

Paul Buckle's side is looking to become the first non-league side to make the quarterfinals of the competition in 99 years, and it will have to overcome the Lions at home to do so



Henry, Kovacs, Richards, Taylor
Lawless, Mendy, Spiller, Howells
Shaw, Gray


Smith, Shittu, Beevers, Lowry
Henry, Trotter, Abdou, Woolford
Hulse, Keogh

Paul Buckle may name a starting XI close to the one that stunned Premier League side Norwich in the last round, with only defender Lathaniel Rowe-Turner missing due to suspension.

The Hatters' goalscorer at Carrow Road, Scott Rendell, may have to make do with a place on the substitutes bench again.

As for Millwall, the game comes too soon for winger Chris Taylor and striker Nathan Tyson, although both should re-join training next week.

Elsewhere, Andy Keogh could come back into the side in place of on-loan Arsenal forward Benik Afobe.

  • Luton is attempting to become the first non-league side to reach the sixth round of the FA Cup since QPR in 1914.
  • Luton's best performance in the FA Cup came in 1959, when The Hatters were runners-up to Nottingham Forest.
  • This is the furthest Luton has been in the FA Cup since 1994, when it was eventually knocked out in the semifinals by Chelsea.
  • By beating Norwich in Carrow Road in the last round (pictured right), Luton became the first non-league side to win away at a Premier League club since Altrincham defeated Birmingham in 1986.
  • Millwall has reached the fifth round of the FA Cup for only the second time since losing in the 2004 final to Manchester United.
  • Millwall has won more games in the FA Cup (two) in 2013 than it has in the League Championship (one).
  • Millwall's Ireland international David Forde had a brief loan spell at Luton in 2007.
  • The last time these two sides met came in the 2007-08 season, when a 0-0 draw was played out at the New Den in League One.
