Striker Charlie Walker has been handed his first Luton Town start in today’s FA Cup second round clash at Bury.

The summer signing has impressed off the bench in recent matches and came in for the injured Paul Benson, partnering Mark Cullen as Town boss John Still switched to a 3-5-2 formation.

Meanwhile, Luke Wilkinson came back in from suspension alongside Steve McNulty and Fraser Franks, as Shaun Whalley missed out due to a knock picked up in last weekend’s 3-0 win over Mansfield.
