Our prediction for this Championship match:
Stoke City will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday when they take on Luton Town in the Championship round 31. The Potters quickly bounced back from a 4-1 loss to Norwich City, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Luton Town. The likes of Campbell, Doughty, and Maenpaa remain on the sidelines with injuries, while Ireland international Collins is a major doubt.
The Hatters, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 loss to Cardiff City on Tuesday evening, but, as things stand now, they are on the right track to secure the Championship survival. Considering that Stoke City aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Luton defender Tom Lockyer, who suffered an injury in the 2-0 loss Cardiff City, is unlikely to feature in the Bet365 Stadium clash.

Adam Davis is a German-born footballer who plays for Championship side Barnsley as a goalkeeper. The 185-cm-tall shoot-stopper began his youth career at Everton and in 2012 he signed a contract with Sheffield Wednesday. However, he never managed to make a first-team appearance for the Owls. Due to the lack of first team action, he decided to leave the club in 2014.
Adam Davies, who was born in Rinteln, Germany on 17 July, 1992, moved to Barnsley on 13 June, 2014. He made his debut for the club against Crawley Town in the opening match of the 2014/2015 campaign and he quickly established himself as a first-choice goalkeeper. His contract with Barnsley expires on 30 June, 2017, but the deal could be extended for a further year.
Adam Davies conceded 82 goals, while keeping 26 clean sheets in 74 appearances for Barnsley in all competitions. During his spell at Everton U23 he managed to keep eight clean sheets in 22 appearances for the club.
