Watford’s local derby against Luton Town on Saturday has been moved forward to an earlier kick-off time on police advice.

The game was originally scheduled to kick-off at 3pm, but will now get underway at 12.30pm.

The Hornets have stated this change is “at the request of Hertfordshire Constabulary”.

Saturday’s fixture will be the first time the two clubs have met since 2006, but will be played behind closed doors due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions.
