          Wolves vs Luton Town: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips

          Luton Town travel to Wolves hoping to pick up a huge three points in their bid for Premier League survival heading into the final stretch of the season.

          Date: 27/04/24

          Kick-off time: 15:00

          Venue: Molineux

          The Hatters sit in a precarious position in the table with just four games remaining. They currently occupy the final relegation place, but are just one point behind Nottingham Forest. Three points could significantly strengthen their hopes of Premier League survival, however anything but would drag them into much deeper trouble. Wolves are in a very comfortable position in midtable, and have an outside chance of cracking the top half should results go their way in the last few games. In 11th, they trail 10th place Brighton by one point, and eighth place West Ham by five having played a game less. A loss would most likely condemn them to a bottom half finish, but a win could see them climb the table.

          Rob Edwards’ side have the second-worst defence in the league, having conceded 75 goals. This will give Wolves the opportunity to add to their home goals tally of 23. Luton have let in 43 goals away from home, which means there is a strong possibility of both teams getting on the scoresheet. The visitors will be without top scorer Matheus Cunha who has scored 11 on the season, so they will turn to Hwang Hee-Chan, who has netted 10 times in 23 appearances. Luton will rely on the services of Carlton Morris up top, who has scored nine. Ross Barkley has also chipped in with five goals and four assists.

          These two sides have met just six times since 2005, three of which came in the Championship and one in the FA Cup. It is a matchup that Wolves have come out on top of, winning three to Luton’s one. The one Luton victory occurred in 2013 as the Hatters edged a third round tie 1-0. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended in a 1-1 draw. Pedro Neto bagged the opener shortly into the second half, but Carlton Morris equalised from the pot 15 minutes later to ensure the points were shared.

          Pedro Neto remains out with a thigh injury Craig Dawson is also out with no return date determined. Matheus Cunha will be sidelined until next month with a calf injury, as will Jean-Ricner Bellagarde with a knee issue.

          Luton

          Luton have several players out for the remainder of the season, but hope to get Elijah Adebayo and Chiedozie Ogbene back sometime next month. Mads Andersen could make an imminent return.

          Wolves

          In their last five games, Wolves have drawn two and lost three. This run started with a derby as they travelled to face Aston Villa. They lost as goals from Moussa Diaby and Ezri Konsa either side of half-time condemned Wolves to a 2-0 defeat. More dropped points followed, as they drew 1-1 at Burnley. The hosts took the lead through Jacob Bruun Larsen, but this was cancelled out just before the break by Ait-Nouri.

          The search for a win continued in the next game which was a home fixture against West Ham, and they lost 2-1. Pablo Sarabia broke the deadlock from the spot, but the Hammers turned it around in 12 second-half minutes through Lucas Paqueta and James Ward-Prowse. Wolves were denied an equaliser in the 99th minute as Max Kilman’s leveller was controversially ruled out. A trip to Nottingham Forest resulted in further dropped points in a 2-2 draw. Forest dominated the shot attempts, though their visitors edged possession. Matheus Cunha put Wolves in front, but Gibbs-White equalised on the stroke of half-time. Danilo turned it around, but Cunha completed a brace minutes later to ensure the points were shared.

          Last time out they hosted title challengers Arsenal in a big game at Molineux. They lost 2-0, with goals coming from Leandro Trossard and Martin Odegaard. Before they host Luton at the weekend, they have another home game with Bournemouth to contend with in midweek.

          Luton

          In their last five games, Luton have won one and lost four. Their most recent game was at home to Brentford, which gave them a huge opportunity to pick up some points in the relegation battle. However, they were on the end of a 5-1 thrashing. Yoanne Wissa scored a first half brace to give them a commanding lead, before Ethan Pinnock, Keane Lewis-Potter and Kevin Schade added further strikes. Luke Berry scored a late consolation.

          They were on the end of another crushing 5-1 defeat, this time at Man City. It was the perfect start for the league leaders as Daiki Hashioka converted into his own net in the opening minutes. They doubled their lead in the second half through Kovacic, before Erling Haaland converted from the spot. Ross Barkley pulled one back for the visitors, but Jeremy Doku and Gvardiol added two more to complete the rout.

          It had been an extended winless streak for relegation-battling Luton, but this was ended when they beat Bournemouth 2-1 in their most recent game. The visitors went ahead shortly after the restart through Marcus Tavernier, but Jordan Clark scored the leveller. Carlton Morris scored the winner in the 90th minute. This followed a trip to Arsenal which ended in defeat as they fell 2-0. Both goals came in the first half as a Martin Odegaard strike and Hashioka own goal proved the difference. They suffered another defeat at Tottenham, this time losing 2-1, but they would have been disappointed not to have left with at least a point. They took an early lead through Chong but could not hold on as an Issa Kabore own goal and Heung-Min Son strike turned it around.
