Our prediction for this Championship match:
Following back-to-back wins over Reading and Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday suffered a 1-0 loss to Millwall in their last league fixture. The Owls, though, remained in the play-offs berth in the Championship standings and they will be looking to cement their spot in top six with a victory over Luton Town at their Hillsborough Stadium. Over the years Sheffield Wednesday have turned their Hillsborough Stadium into a real fortress and seeing that the newcomers do not seem to be competitive at this level, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Lee Bullen’s charges.
Luton’s defence seems to be pretty shaky at the moment, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Owls. When the two teams met in the FA Cup earlier in 2019 Sheffield Wednesday eliminate Luton in the third round of the competition.
Highlighted Player (Moses Odubajo):
Moses Odubajo is a professional footballer who plays for Hull City. Odubajo is a right winger, but he is capable of playing at right-back as well. He made 42 appearances for Hull City in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, no doubt, he helped the team secure promotion to the Premier League, although he then suffered a serious injury next summer.
Moses began his career at Leyton Orient and after spending several seasons on loan at St Albans City, Sutton United and Bishop’s Storford, in 2014 he signed a three-year deal with Brentford for an undisclosed fee. Odubajo scored 3 goals in 45 games for Brentford in the 2014/2015 Championship campaign. At the end of the season he signed a £3.5-million-worth deal with Hull City.
Odubajo was born in Greenwich on 28 July, 1993 and he made a total of six appearances for England U-20 team. On 4 December, 2014 he was reportedly invited to the Nigeria U23 training camp, but opted against switching his allegiance to the Super Eagles.
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.
