It’s been a real struggle as a Derby fan since the departure of Frank Lampard, Derby often used to being in and around the playoffs every year finished 10th and with not many positives to take from the season except the arrival of Wayne Rooney.

However, they take on Luton Town Saturday, another team saved from the drop after points deductions and last day heroics by the side in week 2 of the Championship.

Luton Town Review – Will Luton kick on from their win last week?

The Luton Town camp right now are on cloud 9 after 3 back to back wins, all in convincing fashion so far this season. With a 3-1 in the first round of the EFL Cup against newly relegated side Norwich was a great way to get their season going after retaining Championship status at the end of last season.

Our betting prediction:
Home Win & BTTS

(odds taken 1500 GMT, Wednesday 16 September)


That win was followed by a 1-0 win over Barnsley on Saturday, a solid defensive performance and a clean sheet in their first win of the season would have only boosted the camp’s hope of trying to become an established championship club this time round.

Then, Luton was able to continue their 100% record so far this season with another 1-0 over reading on Tuesday evening in the second round of the EFL Cup. Again, away from home Luton put in a resolute performance and managed to keep a clean sheet for the second time in the same week against a strong reading side who have their sights on the playoffs this season.

It is very obvious that right now the man of the moment for Luton is James Collins. The 29 year old has started the season with 4 goals in 2 matches, including a hattrick in the EFL cup fixture against Norwich where Luton won 3-1.

He then scored the winner in the Barnsley match and was an unused substitute Tuesday night in the second round of the EFL Cup in preparation for this fixture on Saturday. Meaning Luton will have their in form striker fresh and ready to go come Saturday afternoon in their efforts to win again and keep their winning streak alive.

Defensively Luton have been wonderfully organised and disciplined. Last season Luton had the second worst defence in the league, conceding 82 goals in 46 matches.

Luton made note of this and brought in 3 defensive reinforcements in James Bree, Rhys Norrington-Davies and Tom Lockyer all who have played in one of the 3 matches so far. The rise in competition within the backline has added to the performance on the pitch.
