History of the Brighton & Hove Albion v Luton Town fixture

Brighton & HA prepare to entertain Luton Town at Withdean Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having chalked up an impressive 20 wins out of 30 previous matches.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Withdean Stadium was just last season, in March 2006, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Championship match.
