Our prediction for this Championship match:
Luton Town will be aiming to record their first win of the season when they face West Bromwich Albion at their Kenilworth Road on Saturday afternoon. The Hatters have been struggling at the back at the start of the season and seeing that they conceded five goals in total in the first two league games against Middlesbrough (3-3) and Cardiff City (1-2), home win should not be considered.
The Baggies aim to return to winning ways in the Championship after dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Millwall and they are likely to take advantage of the fact that Luton Town’s town has been pretty shaky at the start of the season. A man to watch in the away team will be Matt Phillips, who scored a screamer in a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest on Matchday 1. In their last meeting in the Championship, back in 2007, WBA recorded a 3-2 victory over Luton Town.
