Nathan Jones’ Luton Town and Paul Ince’s Reading square off in the EFL Championship on the final weekend of the regular season.

The Hatters are potentially four games away from securing their place in the Premier League. However, can the Royals rain on Luton’s parade? Check out the latest odds and best tips.

Luton Town Preview – Can the Hatters get the points?

Luton Town had had a memorable Championship season. No matter what happens on the final day, Nathan Jones has done a remarkable job at Kenilworth Road. Injuries have halted their momentum of late, though, with the Hatters taking just one point from their last two games.

After being held to a 1-1 home draw by Blackpool, Luton crashed to a devastating 7-0 defeat to Fulham, who were crowned champions at the final whistle. That was Town’s heaviest loss of the campaign. However, all will be forgotten if they can take the required three points here.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1241 GMT, Friday 6 May)

Despite the loss in London on Monday, Luton will be well up for this one. One more win will see them take a play-off place against all odds. The bookies are offering 1/2 for a home win.

Reading Preview – Will the Royals cause an upset?

Reading have had a difficult time off and on the field this season. The Royals were handed a six-point penalty for breaking EFL rules, which coincided with some terrible form on the pitch. Paul Ince arrived in February and has slowly but surely turned the club’s fortunes around.

After a superb run of three wins and three draws from seven, Reading have stayed up comfortably in the end. However, they have lost their last two without scoring, losing 3-0 at Hull City and 1-0 at home to West Bromwich Albion.
