Team News: Luton Town
The Luton Town manager Rob Edwards will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash thanks to a completely healthy group to pick from.
It’s our opinion that The Hatters may well line up in a 3-4-3 formation for the game, handing starts to Thomas Kaminski, Reece Burke, Tom Lockyer, Amari'i Bell, Issa Kabore, Marvelous Nakamba, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Alfie Doughty, Jacob Brown, Carlton Morris and Chiedozie Ogbene.
Team News: Wolves
Due to a mostly available group of players, there’s only the lone fitness issue for the Wolves manager Gary O'Neil to contend with. Joe Hodge (Hamstring Injury) won’t be in action.
From our viewpoint, Wolves seem most likely to elect for a 4-2-3-1 system, choosing Jose Sa, Nelson Semedo, Craig Dawson, Max Kilman, Rayan Ait Nouri, Joao Gomes, Mario Lemina, Pedro Neto, J. Bellegarde, Hee-Chan Hwang and Matheus Cunha.
Our feeling is that Luton Town will need to put in a solid display to see themselves scoring against this Wolverhampton Wanderers outfit who we think might do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We therefore see a hard-fought 0-1 advantage for Wolverhampton Wanderers at full-time.
Should be an interesting one.
