Luton Town WDDDWD 📈

Luton Town go into this match following a 1-1 Championship drawn match against Leeds United.

In that game, Luton Town managed 25% possession and 3 shots on goal with 2 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Luton Town was Harry Cornick (50'). Leeds United got 20 shots on goal with 8 of them on target. Stuart Dallas (63') scored for Leeds United.

Under three goals per game were scored during 5 of the past 6 fixtures where Luton Town have been involved. Breaking down the goal attribution in this period, their opponents scored a total of 4 and The Hatters got themselves 6. Such a trend won’t necessarily be continued into this next game, of course.

Taking a look at their past results, Luton Town:

  • are undefeated in their previous 4 league matches at home.
  • are without a home win in the past 2 matches in the league.

Reading WLWDLL

Since tasting defeat last time out to Brentford in Championship action, Reading and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

In that match, Reading managed 45% possession and 5 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. For their opponents, Brentford got 19 shots at goal with 9 of them on target. Josh Dasilva (64') and Joel Valencia (90') scored for Brentford.

The numbers tell their own story, and Reading have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 9 goals overall. In defence, The Royals certainly have room for improvement. Regardless, time will tell if that pattern shall persist in this upcoming game or not.

Coming into this clash, Reading have left without a victory over Luton Town in away games against them for the last 4 league games. They'll be keen to stop this run.

🗞️ Team News: Luton Town

Luton Town boss Nathan Jones will be thankful to have no fitness concerns at all coming into this match with a fully healthy group ready to go.

It looks as if The Hatters will probably use the 4-1-4-1 formation, beginning the first half with Simon Sluga, Dan Potts, Sonny Bradley, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Matty Pearson, Martin Cranie, Callum McManaman, Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Harry Cornick and James Collins.

📋 Team News: Reading

Reading boss Mark Bowen has some current player fitness concerns. Tom McIntyre (Ankle Injury) and Jordan Obita (Ankle Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.

We’re of the thinking that The Royals will likely begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation using Rafael, Chris Gunter, Liam Moore, Michael Morrison, Omar Richards, John Swift, Andy Rinomhota, Yakou Méïté, Michael Olise, Ovie Ejaria and George Puscas.

🧠 Prediction

Reading and Luton Town are probably both going to find scoring goals difficult here.

Let’s see what happens, but it could well be that we end up with scores level and two clean sheets. That’s why we have predicted a very competitive game with a 0-0 score when the referee blows the final whistle.
