I've only actually been to the Den once, and that was just outside it. Looks quite decent to be fair. I'm more concerned about the reputation surrounding the club... Seen enough documentaries and videos on their antics to last a lifetime. Not sure if trouble will be more or less likely as its a relatively lowkey game.
I'll still go, mind. Just brush the dust off the Luton Away Survival Kit™, avoiding getting too close to the police horses that they love to touch and drink heavily afterwards to forget you ever stepped foot there in the first place. Should be OK.
Rotherham away - much appreciated by the Yorkshire U's. Pity the dugout is so far away but we'll give the obnoxious duo a warm greeting.
Hope the away fan segregation is a little more relaxed outside than the ground than it was for my only other visit - Rotherham v Bradford in the Cup when Bury got a bit wet.
Just need an away match in the NW (ideally Carlisle or Morecambe) to open the league season and my sheepdog watching plans will fall into place. Knowing my luck, we'll be in the SW or home and compromises will be necessary.
Yes, a very good draw for us. We've never really been bothered with progressing in the League Cup so a home game on the tv (surely?) against one of the biggest teams in the competition at this stage should be good.
No surprise that we are away from home. Since it moved to a single leg format in the early rounds, we have been drawn away from home 8 times out of 9 in round 1.
Ignoring our first two years back after promotion in 2005 when we won 3 out of 5 ties, we have only won 1 of the last 7, and that was against a Portsmouth team that were falling from the top flight to the bottom.
