Market: Luton wins
Odds: 20/23 @ 888sport
Two teams battling each other at the end of the Championship table, Luton will host the relegation scrapers’ Derby on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, who earlier this week delivered yet another hugely impressive display as they secured a 2-1 away win over Stoke, Luton have once again shocked many across the Championship. With the mood in Nathan Jones’ camp at a red-hot high, Hatters now have eyes to secure a playoff spot this year. At the opening of this weekend’s matches, there were only two points after breaking into the top-six, and they have now won five of their previous six matchups across all formats. With their latest purple patch highlighted by a 2-0 win at home against promotion challengers West Brom, Luton have also continued to shine at home. Knowing they have a golden chance to put yet another play-off marker here, Saturday’s hosts have been unbeaten at Kenilworth Road since 27 November.
As for the visitors, the Rams should prepare for a tough test here, while Derby still seem to be trying a fantastic escape this season. Last seen earlier in the week being hit with a 2-1 loss at home to Millwall, Wayne Rooney’s men have managed to win just a couple of their last seven outings. The opening of this weekend’s matches was eight points after finding a route out of the bottom three, the former Manchester United icon has also seen his team gain a reputation for their matches on the road. Last seen away from Pride Park, who were hit with a 4-1 drum beat in the hands of Middlesbrough, it must be emphasized that Derby have lost each of their last four away games. Two sides fighting at opposite ends of the Championship table, we back up a home win for Luton here.
