Hatters centre half Luke Wilkinson has urged his side to knock League Two leaders Wycombe Wanderers off their perch this afternoon.

Victory for Luton at Adams Park would see the Hatters leapfrog the Chairboys and go top, if Shrewsbury fail to win at Oxford.

Wilkinson said: “It’s a very big game, but we’re going to go there to win the game.

“We can’t get ahead of ourselves as there’s still a long way to go, but we’re confident we can win there though, so just bring it on really.”

Town will be cheered on by over 2,500 supporters for the clash, as tickets for the top-of-the-table encounter sold like hot cakes.

Wilkinson added: “They’ve been fantastic so I’m sure they’ll drive us forward on Boxing Day and we’ll try and get the win for them.”

Luton are also at home to Portsmouth on Sunday, a club that is close to Wilkinson’s heart as he signed his first pro deal at Fratton Park.
