Grimsby begin life without Omar Bogle against Luton

Grimsby boss Marcus Bignot has a decision to make ahead of his side's Sky Bet League Two clash with Luton following the departure of leading scorer Omar Bogle.

The Mariners' 19-goal frontman finally left for Championship Wigan on deadline day after weeks of speculation, and Bignot will have to find men to replace those goals.

Promising Everton youngster Calum Dyson has joined the club on loan and former Gateshead midfielder Sam Jones has made a permanent switch to bolster the manager's resources.

Midfielder James Berrett continues his fight against a hip injury which has sidelined him since December.

Luton striker Danny Hylton is likely to start after serving a two-match ban.

Hatters boss Nathan Jones could make one enforced change as midfielder Jonathan Smith is a doubt for their trip.

Smith came off at half-time during their 3-2 defeat against Cheltenham last time out after he sustained a foot injury. Olly Lee is set to replace Smith in the starting line-up.

Johnny Mullins completes his three-match suspension but new signing Ollie Palmer could make his debut after joining the Hatters from fellow League Two club Leyton Orient.
