Luton Town Prediction

It’s been a successful campaign for Luton Town so far this season as The Hatters sit in second place in League One and extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to nine matches on the weekend when they held third placed Sunderland to a 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light.

However, it’s been all change at the helm of Luton Town as former manager Nathan Jones has left to take charge at Championship club Stoke City, with former player and manager, Mick Harford taking over in the interim.

Harford is certainly no stranger at Kenilworth Road as he’s been associated with the London club for many years, and his inherited side have lost just once in their last 18 matches on home turf in all competitions.

League One form have seen Luton Town score at least once in 12 of their 13 home matches to date, and with a forward line consisting of Collins (11 goals) along with Hylton and Cornick (5 goals apiece), the hosts will be confident of hitting the back of the net again this evening.


Key-Facts – Luton Town v Sheffield Wednesday

  • Luton Town have scored at least once in 12 of their 13 home matches to date
  • Sheffield Wednesday were recently unbeaten in four matches
  • Both teams have scored in 9 of Sheffield Wednesday’s 14 away matches to date


Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday crashed to a 3-0 defeat away at Hull City on the weekend which ended The Owls’ promising unbeaten run of four league matches without defeat, but they’ll fancy their chances of making some welcome additional funds with a cup win at League One outfit, Luton Town on Tuesday night.

Following former manager Jos Luhukay’s departure, new coach Steve Agnew has made an instant impact at Hillsborough as Wednesday have started to climb away from the relegation zone in recent weeks.

Recent wins over Preston North End and Middlesbrough should give Sheffield Wednesday the belief of progressing through to the 4th round of the FA Cup, and having seen both teams score in 9 of their 14 away matches to date, the visitors should also notch this evening.

Forwards Joao (8 goals) and Fletcher (4 goals) look the most likely to score for Sheffield Wednesday in this one.

Betting Tips Verdict

If this game had been played a few weeks ago, I’d have backed Luton here, but given Sheffield Wednesday’s recent improved results, both teams to score looks the safest play.
