Luton Form

After suffering a defeat at the hands of Huddersfield by a score of 2-0 on Monday, Luton have now gone three games without a victory in the Championship. The result came after two consecutive draws, one against Millwall at home (2-2) and one away against Peterborough (1-1).

At Huddersfield, the Hatters created chances, as evidenced by their 1.05 expected goals and 54 percent possession of the ball. The team captained by Nathan Jones was unable to capitalize on the opportunity and ended up giving up two late goals.

It was the first time in five games that Luton had been defeated, and now the Hatters have a two-point cushion in the play-off places. At the moment, they are in fifth place, two points behind Nottingham Forest in the standings.

Forest’s performances away from home have been less impressive, as evidenced by their recent draws at Sheffield United (1-1) and Preston (0-0). Their consistent play places them in fourth place, six points behind the positions that grant automatic promotion.
