Luton Town Preview – Hatters to start new season with a home win?

Luton Town did remarkably well to keep themselves in the Championship last season. Nathan Jones, who helped the Hatters to the 2018-19 EFL League One title, returned to the club and made an instant impact at Kenilworth Road.

Luton were very hard to beat at the end of last term, losing only one of their last 12 in the Championship. After a surprise 5-0 home loss to Reading in July, Town ended their season with three wins and two draws from five. They survived on the final day by beating Blackburn Rovers 3-2 at Kenilworth Road. In the end, Luton finished in 19th on 51 points.

Our betting prediction:
Luton to score first

(odds taken 1100 GMT, Friday 4 September)

Of course, Championship survival will be Luton’s priority this season. It will no doubt be another tough campaign for the Hatters, who have one of the lowest budgets in the second tier. Nevertheless, they are a very capable outfit under Jones.

Can Luton kick off their new season with a home win against Norwich City in the Carabao Cup on Saturday?

Norwich City Preview – Canaries to come up short at Kenilworth Road?

Daniel Farke’s Norwich City dropped out of the Premier League after a woeful year in the top flight. The Canaries picked up just five wins from 38 matches, losing a staggering 27 games in the process.

Nonetheless, Norwich are one of the big hitters in the Championship, and City are the bookies’ favourites to win the league and secure promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking. At the time of writing, they are available at just 5/2 for promotion.

Incredibly, Farke’s side have not won since beating Leicester City 1-0 at Carrow Road in Premier League action way back in February. That remains their only success since January. Can Norwich dust themselves down and pick up a win in the cup at the weekend?

Key Facts – Luton Town vs Norwich City Betting Tip

  • Norwich have won three of the last four meetings
  • Luton have lost just one home match since February

When these two teams last met, a Scott Rendell goal was enough to give Luton a 1-0 FA Cup win at Carrow Road in January 2013. The pair have not squared off in this competition since 1985.

Both teams have bigger fish to fry in terms of the Championship, but Luton will want to pick up from where they left off and secure another victory on home turf. We like the look of the 1-0 home win at 10/1.
