Luton have collected 14 points from their last six games to put themselves in a strong position for a playoff spot. Last time out, Rob Edwards’ side broke the deadlock through Alfy Dought’s 51st-minute effort before Amad Diallo’s 86th-minute penalty kick meant that the points were shared at Stadium of Light. Prior to that, the Hatters recorded three consecutive 1-0 wins against Swansea City, Sheffield United and Bristol City. Luton’s home-form this term has not been very great, having won just seven of their 19 matches at Kenilworth Road. Meanwhile, the Hatters have the second-best away record in the Championship this season, having taken 35 points from a possible 57 on the road.
Watford, on the other hand, have struggled away from home, collecting just 22 points from a possible 57 from their travels. The Hornets have recorded just two wins from their last 11 outings, and the poor run of form has led to the arrival of manager Chris Wilder in place Slaben Bilic. Last time out, Watford had to settle for a point at home to rock-bottom side Wigan despite taking the lead through Keinan Davis’s effort on the stroke of half-time. The Hornets head into the match five points adrift of the playoffs and and with just eight games remaining they need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.
