Match Preview

  • Locked in the bottom half alongside a handful of teams wanting to break into the top, Luton Town have lost back-to-back matches ‘to nil’. That will have frustrated manager Nathan Jones, as will the fact the ‘Hatters’ have conceded the first goal within 15 minutes in three of their last four matches (W2, L2).
  • A tight affair could ensue as two straight H2Hs have ended in a draw, and there could be more of the same here considering Luton have both scored and conceded an average of 1.18 goals per Championship home match. Regardless, the hosts will be keen to score first as they’ve done in nine of their home league matches so far (W5, D4), and the last H2H here.
  • Whilst Coventry City seemed safe from relegation a few weeks ago, the ‘Sky Blues’ have won just two of their last ten Championship matches (D3, L5). Nonetheless, 1-0 winners last time out, don’t expect a high-scoring affair as Coventry’s fixtures have averaged 2.23 total goals per match.
  • This rings true no less than when Coventry travel as they’ve failed to score in five of their last ten competitive awaydays, but did concede 2+ goals in four such trips. In fact across the season, Coventry have scored an average of just 0.76 goals per Championship road trip, and look unlikely to cause much trouble due to their current six-game winless run on the road (D2, L4).
  • Players to watch: Luton’s seven-goal James Collins has three career H2H goals and may be his team’s best option for a breakthrough. Coventry’s four-goal Maxime Biamou broke a seven-game goal drought with an 11th minute strike last time out, and will no doubt be looking for another goal here.
  • Hot stat: As Luton have scored five home league goals within the 46th-60th minute period, and Coventry have conceded seven league away goals during this period, this timeframe could be a flashpoint!
