Luton Town arrive at Turf Moor on Saturday for the Championship fixture with home team Burnley.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Burnley v Luton Town are shown below - as well as up-to-date odds.
Burnley will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 0-1 Championship victory against Huddersfield Town.
In that game, Burnley managed 69% possession and 16 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. The only player to score for Burnley was Ian Maatsen (18'). On the other side, Huddersfield Town had 2 attempts on goal with 0 of them on target.
It has been seldom in recent games where Burnley have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Burnley have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 8 goals during that time. That aside, it remains to be seen if the trend might be replicated in this upcoming match.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Burnley:
- have not lost a league tie with Luton Town in their previous 4 games.
- are without a home win in the past 2 league matches.
Last time out, Luton Town drew 0-0 in the Championship match with Birmingham City.
In that match, Luton Town managed 53% possession and 15 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. At the other end, Birmingham City had 12 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.
It is worth noting that Luton Town have suffered from a shortage of goals in their past six encounters, netting the poor return of just 3. In those matches, The Hatters have also seen the collective goal tally against them equal 10.
A look at their previous results shows us that Luton Town:
- haven't won against Burnley in games played away from home for the previous 2 matches in the league.
- remain unbeaten by Burnley when having played them away from home in the previous 6 matches in the league. Travelling fans have really enjoyed these clashes.

Team News: Burnley
Ashley Westwood (Ankle Fracture), Jay Rodríguez (Unknown Injury) and Jóhann Berg Gudmundsson (Calf Injury) won’t be able to feature for Burnley manager Vincent Kompany.
Team News: Luton Town
Thanks to a mainly healthy squad, there is only a single fitness problem for the Luton Town boss Nathan Jones to be concerned with. James Shea (Knee Injury) won’t be playing here.
We’re thinking that Burnley will most probably stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
However, Luton Town are also probably going to find it difficult getting goals although we do think it’s probable that they will be being dangerous for periods.
We’re therefore expecting to see a decent 3-1 winning margin for Burnley when the full-time whistle blows.
