Luton Town Preview – Can the Hatters make it three wins in a row?

Luton Town have spent the majority of their season around mid-table, which is a real feat for a team who were among the favourites for relegation before a ball was kicked. Nathan Jones, who returned to the club last term, has done a fine job at Kenilworth Road.

Luton have picked up an impressive 16 wins this season, which is the same amount that the likes of Cardiff City, Middlesbrough and Queens Park Rangers have managed. Town are in decent form ahead of this one, winning four of the last six.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score
5/6

(odds taken 1710 GMT, Tuesday 20 April)

 
After losses to Derby County and Barnsley, Luton have bounced back with back-to-back wins. Last weekend, the Hatters shocked Premier League chasing Watford at Kenilworth Road, with James Collins netting the only goal of the derby match. Can they beat another one of the Championship’s big hitters on Wednesday?

Reading Preview – Will the Royals reignite their promotion bid with a win?

Reading have hit a poor patch of form at just the wrong time. The Royals have won only one of their past seven in the Championship, collecting a mere seven points from a possible 21 since three wins on the spin.

Reading rescued a point against Cardiff right at the death last time out, but even though Barnsley went on to lose on Sunday, the Royals are four points behind sixth spot with 12 points to play for. The bookies have Reading priced at 4/1 to finish in the top six.
