Match preview

The sole midweek fixture in the Championship is set to play out at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday, January 31st.

The matchup in question will see a Luton Town outfit pushing for a promotion playoff spot act as hosts, in a meeting with struggling Cardiff City.

Starting with the former, Luton, all told, have been in fine form of late.

Dating back to the end of last month, the Hatters have slipped to just a solitary defeat in eight fixtures across all competitions.

This run includes four wins from five in the league, the latest of which came at the expense of Championship basement dwellers Wigan Athletic a little over a week ago.

Elijah Adebayo took his place centre stage once more on the day, notching his 4th goal in four appearances to guide Luton to the right side of a 2-0 scoreline at the DW Stadium.

Such stellar efforts, in turn, have guided Rob Edwards’ troops back to the very fringes of the playoff battle, in the knowledge that another victory on Tuesday night would see them surge to the dizzying heights of joint-3rd in England’s 2nd tier.

And, though they did stutter to a disappointing stalemate with Grimsby Town in the FA Cup in midweek, Luton will no doubt be confident in their chances of managing precisely that later today.

This comes with upcoming opponents Cardiff City have endured an altogether less fruitful time of things of late.

The Bluebirds, for their part, find themselves battling it out at the other end of the table, amid what has proven a remarkably poor stretch of form over the course of the last couple of months.

All told, since early November, Cardiff have failed to notch a single win from their last eleven attempts in all competitions.

This includes back-to-back defeats over the last fortnight, first sent packing from the FA Cup by Leeds United, before being downed by a solitary goal at home to Millwall last time out.

With a league-worst 21 goals to show for their efforts across the entirety of the season, incoming head coach Sabri Lamouchi, safe to say, will therefore have a job on his hands in turning things around over the weeks ahead.

Though all associated with Cardiff will be hopeful of a ‘new manager bounce’ coming into immediate effect on Tuesday night, we at 101 are nevertheless backing hosts Luton to ultimately emerge with all three points come the full-time whistle at Kenilworth Road.
