First team development coach Carl Emberson believes that Luton will be able to better gauge the strength of their title credentials after tonight's pre-season clash with Wycombe Wanderers (7.30pm).
It will be the first of three home friendlies against Football League opposition, and while, as expected, the Blue Square Bet Premier big boys have already beaten lower league Hitchin Town, AFC Dunstable and St Albans City, the Chairboys currently reside in League Two - a division that the Hatters have ultimate designs on.
"They are in the league above us and that's where we want to be," said Emberson. "If we can be better than them then we'll have a great chance of winning promotion.
"It will be a real opportunity for the boys to shine against a league club and the atmosphere at Kenilworth Road should be pretty good."
A development squad will go to Dunstable Town tomorrow night and then Championship club Ipswich Town come to Bedfordshire on Saturday before the home warm-up programme ends with the visit of League One Leyton Orient on August 4.
Emberson added: "These games coming up now will be a real test. We'll definitely know where we're at in the next 10 days. Hopefully the boys will come through with flying colours.
"It's no good playing a lot of teams that should be inferior to us on paper. We have to ask the question, how good are we?"
