Our prediction for this Championship match:
Fulham will look to recover from a 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest when they host Luton Town to their Craven Cottage on Monday. The Cottagers have already secured promotion to EPL, but they surely want to put icing on the cake on a very successful season. Aleksandar Mitrovic should continue to lead the line for the hosts, while Tom Cairney is pushing for a start. Defender Terence Kongolo remains on the sidelines with injury.
The Hatters, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Blackpool. Luton are five points clear of seventh-place Middlesbrough, meaning that they should be happy with one point from Monday’s clash. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders, who are enjoying a season to remember. All Clark, Osho, and Steer have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away team.
Highlighted Player (Tom Cairney):
Tom Cairney is a professional footballer who plays for Fulham. His main position is central midfielder, but he plays as an attacking midfielder and a right midfielder as well. The left-footed player was born in Nottingham, England on 20 January, 1991 and he started his youth career at Leeds United.
In 2007 he moved to Hull City and he was named Hull’s Young Player of the Year for the 2008/2009 campaign. After making 70 league appearances for the Tigers he joined Blackburn Rovers on 1 August, 2013 on loan and on 2 January, 2014 he signed a permanent deal with the Riversiders. At the end of the 2014/2015 Championship campaign he joined Fulham.
Tom Cairney’s father is Scottish and, as a result, the Fulham footballer decided to represent Scotland on the international stage. Cairney has 2 caps for Scotland U-21 and he made 6 appearances for Scotland U-21 team. It has to be noted that he suffered a serious injury in August 2012. The injury forced him to be out of contention for over three months.
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.
