The Blues are aiming to end a string of crushing defeats when they host play-off rivals Luton at Brunton Park tonight.

The injury-hit side have suffered four straight defeats without scoring.

The poor run of form has added to frustrations among United fans about how the club is being run.

It has led to one group planning a protest outside the Main Stand from 7pm tonight to voice their anger about the club, but stress their protests are not directed against manager Keith Curle or his players.

One of those taking part is United fan Niall Scott told ITV Border: "It's important the board know how angry the fans feel.

"There is a lack of ambition at the club and we've had to suffer years of failure."

"I am always optimistic before a game and we will still be cheering the team on. This is not about the players or Keith Curle - just against the board," he added.

There will be added spice on the pitch too following an acrimonious 1-1 draw at Luton.
