Luton vs Huddersfield England – Championship Date: Friday, 13 May 2022 Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET Venue: Kenilworth Road.
A spot in the Championship Playoffs final will be at stake when Huddersfield Town and Luton Town square off against each other in a highly-anticipated double-header which is scheduled this Friday at Kenilworth Road.
Luton finished the league standings with 75 points from 46 games securing 21 wins and 12 draws. They were at the last spot of Championship Playoffs while leveling points with Sheffield United. The hosts have kept 3 clean sheets in the last 5 games, conceding 8 goals during this period.
The Hatters quickly bounced back from an embarrassing 7-0 loss to Fulham, with the team beating Reading previously, thanks to Harry Cornick’s goal which ultimately gained them a 1-0 win. A common feature of more recent Luton Town games is the number of results with a nil in them. Taking their previous 6 matches leading up to this one, it is visible in 5 of them.
On the other side, Huddersfield finished the league standings with 82 points from 46 games securing 23 wins and 13 draws. They topped the Play Off area and was third behind Bournemouth. The Terriers are on a 4-game winning run ahead of the first leg, but they will have to prove their worth on the field.
Huddersfield will go into the meeting after a 2-0 Championship win over Bristol City in their previous game. Momentum is really building for them as they have now gone 7 games without losing.
Luton vs Huddersfield Head-to-head (h2h)

They met last month where Huddersfield won by 2 goals to nil.
Luton vs Huddersfield Prediction
Incredible performance is seen from Luton Town at home, where they are currently unbeaten in 5 games with 3 wins. They also remain unbeaten at home against this rival since their last 3 league meet-ups.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield Town has enjoyed playing away from home recently, with the side winning the last 3 on-road games in a row. They have now also gone 7 games without losing. But they couldn’t secure a win over this foe on away fixtures since the last 3 league meetings.
We envisage a home win this Friday as the hosts tend to give better results at home and they also remain unbeaten at Kenilworth Road recently.
