Injury doubts ahead of FA Cup replay

Sam Hutchinson, Keiren Westwood and Joey Pelupessy are all doubtful for Tuesday evening’s FA Cup third round replay at Luton.

Hutchinson took a heavy knock in Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Hull, Westwood was having a scan on an injured toe on Monday and Pelupessy is struggling with an ankle problem.

Caretaker boss Steve Agnew said he had talked through the woeful performance at Hull with the players and added: “We’ve got to get back on track with this FA Cup tie and then after that, pick up as many points as we can back in the league. We want to see an immediate reaction.”

The replay has an added incentive, with the winners earning a trip to Chelsea in the fourth round, and Agnew said: “It will be a very difficult cup tie. I want the players to enjoy the game and play with a determination. The FA Cup is a passionate game and that’s what we want to see from the players.”
