Our prediction for this Championship match:
There will be fireworks when Coventry and Luton go head to head in the Championship playoffs final at Wembley Stadium. The Sky Blues set up a meeting with Luton by beating Middlesbrough in the two-legged tie and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s clash as well. There are no fresh injury worries in Mark Robins’ team ahead of the decider, but both Eccles and Godden are pushing for a start.
The Hatters, on the other hand, booked their place in the final thanks to a 3-2 win (on agg) over Sunderland. Considering that Luton looked solid at the back in a 2-0 win over Boro as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. As for the nominal visitors, Cauley Woodrow remains on the sidelines with a knee injury, while Allan Campbell could sneak into the starting XI.
Highlighted Player (Simon Moore):
Simon Moore is an English goalkeeper who plays for Sheffield United in the Championship. Moore began his career at Brading Town and, after playing 49 games in the league for the club, he moved to Farnborough in 2008. However, due to the lack of first-team football, Simon Moore left the club at the end of the season, with the 191-cm-tall shoot-stopper signing a contract with Brentford.
The English goalkeeper, who was born in Sandown on May 19, 1990, made his debut for the Bees in May, 2010 against Hartlepool United, coming as a substitute for first-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. After ending his loan spell with Basingstoke Town in January 2011, he moved to Cardiff City and it has to be noted that he made 17 appearances for the Welsh outfit.
In the summer of 2016 he signed a deal with Sheffield United for a fee of around £500,000 and he did remarkably well to keep 17 clean sheets in the 2016/2017 League One campaign. The Blades finished the season in top position in the standings and, no doubt, Simon Moore’s brilliant saves helped the club secure promotion to the English second tier.
Highlighted Team (Luton ):
Founded back on April 11, 1885, Luton Town are an English club that compete in the Championship. The Hatters welcome their rivals at Kenilworth Road, the stadium which was opened in 1905. The capacity of the stadium is 10,356, with Luton Borough Council owning the venue.
Luton Town wear orange shirts with a little white and dark blue and dark blue shorts when playing at home, whilst their away colours are white and dark blue. Andy Rennie is the club’s all-time top scorer, netting 162 goals in all competitions for the Hatters. The likes of Joe Payne, Hugh Billington, Bernard Streten, Dyd Owen, Bob Morton, Ron Baynham, Gordon Turner and Mal Donaghy are one of the club’s most notable players as well.
Luton Town finished the 2018/2019 League One campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will compete in the Championship in the 2019/2020 season.
