Luton got themselves a good away win on the weekend to relieve a little bit of pressure after having suffered back to back losses.

Next up for them is a home game against Nottingham Forest, who have only managed the one win all season.

But Forest are just starting to head in the right direction as they are undefeated in their last three.

Luton Preview – Can the Hatters land back to back wins?

Luton are W4 L3 for this season’s Championship campaign. It’s not bad at all from them.

Two of the three losses that they have suffered have happened out on the road.

After winning their first two home games of the season, beating Derby and Wycome, they slipped up in their most recent one.

That was in mid-October when they suffered a 2-0 reverse against Stoke.

The Hatters collected a good 1-0 away win at Sheffield Wednesday on the weekend, snapping a two game losing streak in the division.

There has been a clear contrast in their output when you break down their opposition that Luton have faced.

All four of the wins that Luton have taken have been against teams who are currently sat in the bottom four.

In contrast to that, all three of their losses happened against teams currently above them in the top-eight.

To put that in contrast, they are facing a Nottingham Forest side who ended the weekend in 19th.

The bookmakers have Luton as the 2/1 underdogs in Championship football betting for the midweek fixture* (odds taken 04:25 GMT, Tuesday, 27th October).

Our betting prediction:
1-1 Correct Score

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 04:25 GMT, Tuesday, 27th October)


In last season’s Championship meetings, Luton, following their promotion to the second tier, lost both games against Forest.

This season’s return at Kenilworth Road hasn’t been bad, as Luton are averaging 1.3 goals per game.

They have not been trailing at the halftime break either this season on home turf.

So they should be in this at the break and the half time draw is a reasonable option at even money* (odds taken 04:25 GMT, Tuesday, 27th October).


Nottingham Forest Preview – Can Forest raise their game?

It has not been the easiest of seasons for Nottingham Forest. They were certainly in poor shape after four games.

They lost their first four games of the campaign, but have since shown a bit of improved form.

Forest are W1 D2 in their last three games, playing out back to back 1-1 draws against Rotherham and Derby.

The one win that they have managed did happen out on the road. That was at Blackburn in their last road fixture in the middle of October.

That game, a 1-0 win, is the only game in which they have managed a clean sheet too.

Forest have had problems sticking the ball in the back of the net, having scored just four times in seven games.

In six of their seven fixtures, Forest have conceded the opening goal of the game.

So they have spent a lot of time having had to chase fixtures this season in league action.

But the bookies have them as the 6/4 favourites for the win* (odds taken 04:25 GMT, Tuesday, 27th October).

All of the four goals that have been scored in the matches this season with Forest as the away team, have come in the second half of games.

The trend with them, therefore, has been half time draws in all three road games.

A 0-0 Half Time Score, therefore, should have a little bit of appeal at a 6/4 quote* (odds taken 04:25 GMT, Tuesday, 27th October).

So even though they have had their struggles, Forest are running as the 6/4 favourites to win this match outright* (odds taken 04:25 GMT, Tuesday, 27th October).

That’s very interesting as Forest are seven points worse off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign.


Luton vs Nottingham Forest Betting Advice

We are going with the draw in the match outright in this one. That will be based on the recent improvement from Forest.

They showed good spirit to fight back and get a draw on the weekend against rivals Derby, so they can take heart from that.

On top of that, they claimed a good win in their last away games, so we can see them being in this.


Key Facts – Luton vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

  • Luton are W4 L3 this season in the Championship
  • Luton lost both games against Forest last season
  • Nottingham Forest have only claimed one league win this season


Luton have done a great job of picking up four wins already this season. That’s a vast improvement to where they were at this stage last season.

But they were helped a little on the weekend against Sheffield Wednesday as the Owls had received a red card in the second half of the match.

Luton took their chance there. However, we don’t see them taking the win.

So a 1-1 correct score option is a great option at 5/1* (odds taken 04:25 GMT, Tuesday, 27th October).
