Luton Town to win 3-1 (14/1)

Luton Town need to win on Saturday as they are at risk of dropping out of the play-offs.

The Hatters have both Millwall and Middlesbrough chasing them down.

They host a Reading side who have already secured survival and whose season is effectively over.

Elijah Adebayo to score first (10/3)

Match preview Luton Town vs Reading

Luton Town are looking to keep hold of their place in the top six on the final day of the season.

A huge 7-0 defeat against Fulham leaves them with little room for error.

The Hatters are now just two points ahead of Middlesbrough and three ahead of Millwall.

Both teams have a superior goal difference so a draw is unlikely to be enough.

Luton dropped points in their last match at Kenilworth Road as they drew 1-1 with Blackpool.

Reading lose back to back matches

Reading have already secured their place in the Championship for next season.

However, their recent form has been poor with the Royals losing three of their last five.

Paul Ince’s side have also lost back to back matches in their last two.

They lost against Hull City 3-0 and then 1-0 at home to West Brom.

Reading will finish the season in 21st regardless of the result on Saturday.
