Luton Town News and Form – Hatters to make home advantage count?

The Hatters have had a tough start to life in the Championship, with their first two fixtures being against Middlesbrough and Cardiff City, who will both be fighting for promotion to the Premier League this season.

Graeme Jones’ boys kicked off their Championship campaign with a hard-fought 3-3 home draw with Boro. Luton fell behind twice but James Collins’ goal with five minutes left rescued a point. Town were then seconds away from picking up a precious point at Cardiff last weekend, but a 96th-minute winner from debutant Isaac Vassell gave the Bluebirds all three points in South Wales.

Luton were unstoppable at Kenilworth Road in League One last term, winning 16 and drawing seven of their 23 home league matches. The Hatters were also decent on the road, as they secured 11 league victories on their travels.

Luton’s main aim will be to stay in the second tier this season, but the supporters would be more than happy with a run in the cup. Can Jones’ men see off Ipswich at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday evening?

Ipswich Town News and Form – Can Lambert’s side cause problems at Kenilworth Road?

Ipswich Town had a season to forget in the Championship last term. The Tractor Boys finished rock bottom of the second tier, picking up just five league wins and accumulating a mere 31 points in the process. Meanwhile, Town lost 25 of their 46 league matches (16 draws).

Paul Lambert’s troops will be eyeing up an instant return to the Championship, and Ipswich have started their League One campaign with four points from their opening two matches. The Tractor Boys began with an excellent 1-0 win at Burton Albion, with Luke Garbutt scoring the only goal of the game. Garbutt was then on the scoresheet again last Saturday, as Ipswich picked up a handy 1-1 draw with Sunderland at Portman Road.

The club from Suffolk are still licking their wounds after a disastrous league campaign last term. However, Town are one of the favourites for promotion from the third tier, with the bookies pricing them at just 5/2 to win the League Two title this season.

Ipswich may be a league lower than their opponent on Tuesday, but Lambert’s squad is full of quality and they will fancy their chances of winning and progressing through to the second round on this year’s EFL Cup.

Luton Town v Ipswich Town Predictions

Luton Town win: As I mentioned, these two teams seem evenly matched, so we should be in for a tight cup tie on Tuesday. Both have bigger fish to fry when it comes to league commitments, but neither side will want to lose this one. I can see it being a close cup tie at Kenilworth Road, but I’m putting my money on a narrow home win – back Luton to win 2-1 at 7/1. Meanwhile, Luton to be winning at half time is nicely priced at 13/10.
