Luton boss John Still says Saturday's clash of AFC Wimbledon striker Adebayo Akinfenwa and Hatters defender Steve McNulty will be "worth coming to see".
McNulty and Akinfenwa, known for their larger frames, met each other once last term - the Dons winning the match 1-0.
"They're two lads that will probably respect each other's contributions," Still told BBC Three Counties Radio.
"They might have a little dig in the game but will have arms around each other at the end."
He added: "There's contests like that which are worth coming to see without the actual game itself. They're two larger than life characters so that gives it a little bit more interest."
Luton will be looking for their fourth win in five games when they host a Wimbledon side who have only lost once on the road in League Two so far this season.
