          Luton Town vs Nottingham Forest Prediction & Betting Tips

          Nottingham Forest make the trip to Kenilworth Road this Saturday to take on Luton Town in the Premier League. Both sides are deep in the relegation scrap and desperately need a big three points this weekend.

          Date: 16/03/2024

          Kick-off time: 15:00

          Location: Kenilworth Road

          The relegation battle is hotting up, with six teams separated by just 12 points. After Everton had their point deduction reduced, Nottingham Forest were pulled right into the battle, with them and Luton only separated by three points themselves.

          Luton Town currently sit 18th in the Premier League after 27 games. The Hatters have five wins, six draws and 16 losses, leaving them on 21 points, three points from safety.

          The Hatters have outperformed their league standings in attack. Luton have scored 38 goals in 27 games, giving them an average of 1.41 goals a game. However, Luton have struggled defensively, conceding 55 goals and keeping just two clean sheets.

          Nottingham Forest sit just above Luton in 17th in the Premier League. In 28 games, Forest have six wins, six draws and 16 losses which leaves them on 24 points, three points above Luton and one point from Everton.

          Forest have struggled in front of goal scoring 34 goals in 28 games, an average of 1.26 goals a game. Nottingham Forest haven’t had much more luck at the other end of the pitch, conceding 49 goals and keeping four clean sheets.

          Luton and Nottingham Forest have met 68 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1938. Forest have a marginally better record in the fixture with 27 wins in comparison to Luton's 23 wins, the other 18 games ending in a draw.

          However, Nottingham Forest have yet to beat Luton in the last five meetings, with three draws and two wins for The Hatters. Though only two of the last five games in the fixture have seen both sides on the scoresheet, one of those times was the last game between the two sides in October, a 2 - 2 draw.

          Recent Form

          In their last five games in all competitions, Luton have one draw and four losses.

          A quickfire double from Rasmus Hojlund saw Manchester United 2 - 0 up after just seven minutes. Carlton Morris did get The Hatters on the scoresheet before the 15-minute mark but Luton were unable to convert any of their 22 shots as United held on for their 2 - 1 win.

          The Hatters did take a surprise 1 - 0 lead into halftime against Liverpool, Chiedozie Ogbene scoring in the 12th minute. However, Virgil van Dijk, Cody Gakpo, Luis Diaz and Harvey Elliott all scored in the second half to grab a 4 - 1 win for Liverpool.

          In the Fifth Round of the FA Cup, Luton hosted fellow Premier League side and current holders Manchester City. Jordan Clark did get on the scoresheet twice against City but an impressive five goals from Erling Haaland and a goal from Mateo Kovacic gave Man City the 6 - 2 win.

          Back in the Premier League, Luton hosted Aston Villa. A brace from Ollie Watkins saw Villa take a 2 - 0 lead into halftime, but goals from Tahith Chong and Morris made it 2 - 2 with under 20 minutes to go. However, an 89th-minute goal from Lucas Digne gave Villa the 3 - 2 win.

          The trip to Selhurst Park saw Luton Town behind early on thanks to a goal from Jean-Philippe Mateta in the 11th minute. Crystal Palace held onto that lead until extra time where in the 96th minute, Cauley Woodrow scored to grab an important 1 - 1 draw.

          Luton also face Bournemouth on Wednesday in the Premier League.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Nottingham Forest have one win and four losses.

          However, the trip to Villa Park was one to forget. Watkins opened the scoring for Aston Villa in the fourth minute and a brace from Douglas Luiz made it 3 - 0 before the 40-minute mark. Moussa Niakhate got Forest on the scoresheet before halftime and Morgan Gibbs-White made it 3 - 2 minutes into the second half. However, a goal from Leon Bailey wrapped up the game in a 4 - 2 win for Villa.

          In the Fifth Round of the FA Cup, Nottingham Forest hosted Manchester United. Casemiro scored the only goal of the game in the 89th minute to give United the 1 - 0 win.
