Our prediction for this Championship match:
Following an unexpected loss to Birmingham City, Stoke City will look to escape the danger zone when they face Luton Town at their Bet365 Stadium. The Potters do not seem to be at the top of their game, with the team winning only one of their last five league fixtures. Both Josh Laurent and Gavin Kilkenny are sidelined with injuries, while all Lewis Baker, Liam Delap, and Connor Taylor are one yellow card away from suspension.
The Hatters, on the other hand, aim to climb to the playoffs berth. Luton did well to beat Blackpool thanks to Luke Berry’s goal on Saturday, but beating Stoke City on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Bet365 Stadium, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Dan Potts limped off with injury at the weekend, with Harry Cornick likely to step up.
Highlighted Player (Aden Flint):
Born in Pinxton, England on July 11, 1989, Aden Fint began his youth career at his hometown club Pinxton. In 2008 he moved to Alfreton Town and he scored 45 goals in more than 100 appearances for the club.
In 2011 he signed a contract with Swindon Town and, no doubt, that was a step up in his career. The 197-cm-tall defender played 64 games in the league for the Robins and in 2013 he signed for Bristol City for a fee of £300,000. Aden Flint made his debut on August 3, 2013 in a 2-2 draw with Bradford City.
The centre-back scored his first goal for Bristol city on September 21 in a 3-2 loss to his former club Swindon Town. You should know that Flint was named Player of the Year for the 2015/2016 season. The Bristol City footballer has a contract with the club which expires on June 30.
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.
