Huddersfield vs Luton Prediction

For our Huddersfield vs Luton prediction, we’re opting for another 1-1 draw in this play off fixture.

Huddersfield Town and Luton Town square off in the second leg of their Championship playoff semi-final with the tie delicately poised at 1-1.

Whoever prevails at the John Smith's Stadium will set up a showdown against either Nottingham Forest or Sheffield United at Wembley Stadium.

With the tie still firmly in the balance after an even first leg, Huddersfield will be confident of making it through to the final with home advantage in the second leg. The Terriers have gone a decent home record with three wins and a draw from their last four games at the John Smith's Stadium.

Luton meanwhile ended the season in patchy form away from Kenilworth Road; their last away outing was a 7-0 battering at the hands of Fulham whilst they lost at Huddersfield just a month ago as well.

Luton Town ended their regular season campaign with a hard-fought 1-0 home victory over Reading. They were given a stern test by the Royals with Harry Cornick getting the only goal on the stroke of half-time.

The Hatters appeared to have lost their way in the final weeks of the regular season and suffered a 7-0 defeat to Champions Fulham in their penultimate fixture. However, that win over Reading was enough to earn them a playoff place.

The first leg ended south of the 2.5 goal mark and we think the second leg will end that way too. Huddersfield have gone under 2.5 goals in three of their last five matches whilst Luton have only gone north of the 2.5 mark in one of their past five matches. On top of that, Friday's 1-1 draw means it's now nine of the last 10 head to head games that have failed to hit the magic three goal marker.

For our Huddersfield vs Luton prediction, we’re opting for under 2.5 goals in this Championship play off game.

TIE TO BE DECIDED ON PENALTIES @ 5/1

Huddersfield Team News

Having suffered an injury towards the end of the first half, Ollie Turton may miss out for Huddersfield with Pipa likely to deputise on the right-hand side.

Corberan took no risks on Levi Colwill on Friday due to illness, but the Chelsea loanee will come under consideration for a recall.

Although Sorba Thomas impressed on his return from a knee injury, the winger may be kept in reserve rather than returning to the starting lineup.

Luton Team News

Luton's main injury concern is Henri Lansbury, who needed to be withdraw ahead of the final quarter on Friday.

Tom Lockyer could be drafted into the starting lineup after replacing him, while leading marksman Elijah Adebayo may be fit enough to take a spot on the substitutes' bench.
