Luton Town's visit to Edgar Street should help to boost Hereford United's finances
12:00pm Friday 27th September 2013 in Sport
HEREFORD United face one of their toughest challenges of the season when Luton Town visit Edgar Street on Saturday.
The Hatters are one of the most fancied teams in the Skrill Premier and, under the experienced leadership of John Still, are among the favourites to reclaim their place back in the Football League.
Sources indicate that Luton will bring between 600 and 1,000 fans to back them, bringing a welcome boost to the Bulls coffers.
And full-back Chris Bush is hoping that United fans will also turn out in numbers to help the Bulls in their bid to climb the table.
“Hopefully, the Lincoln game has sent a message out to the fans to say that we are playing good football, working hard and putting our bodies on the line for the club,” he said.
“When Luton come down on Saturday, we’ll be aiming to give the same sort of performance that we have over the last couple of games.”
United will almost certainly be without Michael Rankine, who suffered a reccurrence of his hamstring problem at Halifax last Saturday.
Chris Sharp is also ruled out for two to three weeks after injuring his ankle in training before the game at Halifax.
And it will be the final game of their initial month’s loan for both Paul Green and Michael West.
Danny Pilkington is, however, back in contention for a place after recovering from a hamstring strain and making a brief substitute appearance against Lincoln.
