Luton Town Preview – Will the Hatters secure a third league win?

Nathan Jones’ Luton Town started their 2021-22 Championship season with a 3-0 home win over newly promoted Peterborough United. The Hatters were too strong for the Posh, with Elijah Adebayo, Harry Cornick and Fred Onyedinma getting the goals.

Luton were narrowly beaten by West Bromwich Albion in game two, though they bounced back with a superb victory on the road in midweek. They edged past Barnsley, who finished fifth and reached the play-offs last term, with Amari Bell’s early goal giving Town a 1-0 win at Oakwell.

Our betting prediction:
Luton to keep a clean sheet

The confidence will be brimming at Kenilworth Road after Luton have taken six points from their opening three games. They will fancy their chances of getting the better of Birmingham on home soil on Saturday, and the home win is priced at just 11/10.

Birmingham City Preview – Can the Blues bounce back from defeat?

Birmingham City opened up their season with an excellent away win at Sheffield United, who were plying their trade in the Premier League last term. Maxime Colin’s early effort earned them a 1-0 victory.

Birmingham then beat Colchester United in the cup before drawing 0-0 at home with Stoke City on matchday two in the Championship. After a steady start, the Midlands outfit succumbed to Bournemouth at St Andrew’s in midweek, losing 2-0 to the promotion hopefuls.

Luton Town vs Birmingham City Betting Advice

Luton picked up a narrow win at St Andrew’s when these two sides last met. It was a close matchup in the Midlands, with Dan Potts’ first-half goal being the only difference between the two teams. The reverse fixture at Kenilworth Road finished in a 1-1 draw.

Luton’s win last February was their first victory over Birmingham since 2006. Before last season, City had won the previous two and were unbeaten in three.


Key Facts – Luton Town vs Birmingham City Betting Tip

  • Luton have won two of their opening three

Like we said, it was a tight and tense affair when these two last locked horns. However, Potts netted the only goal in a Luton win. We can see something similar unfolding at Kenilworth Road on Saturday. Town are a tough nut to crack on their own patch, and we like the look of the 1-0 home win at 11/2.

Harry Cornick has made a good start to his season, scoring in games against Peterborough and West Brom. The 26-year-old has an eye for goal, and Cornick is available at 5/2 to score anytime in this one.
