Luton Town Preview – Hatters to secure spot in round two?

Luton Town were the surprise package in the Championship last term. They were tipped for relegation before a ball was kicked but finished in sixth. They lost out in the semi-finals to Huddersfield Town in the end, but it was a remarkable season for the Bedfordshire club. Can they pull off a similar feat this term?

Luton have started their 2022-23 campaign with two draws. On the opening weekend, they were held at home by Birmingham City. They then battled to a 1-1 draw with Vincent Kompany’s Burnley at Turf Moor last weekend. They took a fifth-minute lead but were pegged back just after half time.

Our betting prediction:
Luton to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1645 GMT, Monday 8 August)

Luton will want to keep up their unbeaten start by securing their spot in the second round of the EFL Cup. Town are the clear favourites to get the win at 8/15.

Newport County Preview – Can the Exiles upset the home side?

Newport County will be pushing for promotion from EFL League Two this season and upsetting a Championship club in the cup early doors will no doubt stand them in good stead. The bookies are offering 19/4 for the Welsh team to win in the 90 on Tuesday night.

James Rowberry’s side have taken just one point from their opening two fixtures. They drew 1-1 at Sutton United in game one. Last weekend, County were beaten at home by Walsall, who are managed by former manager Mike Flynn.

Newport will still be hurting from last weekend’s home reverse. Nonetheless, can they put in a good performance at Kenilworth Road before travelling to Bradford City in the league this Saturday?
