Luton Town will be backed by more than 6,000 away fans for their FA Cup third round tie at Newcastle United next month after they were handed an additional allocation by the Premier League side.

The Hatters quickly sold out the initial 5,958 tickets they were offered for the match at St James' Park on January 6 and Newcastle have now given them more.

The extra 1,000 tickets will go on sale on Thursday morning and can be purchased from the ticket office, online or on the phone.

Luton are one of the top-scoring teams in the country and are currently four points clear at the top of League Two.

They thrashed Gateshead 5-0 in the previous round and have a history of knocking Premier League teams out of the FA Cup having famously beaten Norwich City 1-0 as a non-league side in 2013.
