Our prediction for this Championship match:
Sunderland play host to Luton at their Stadium of Light in the Championship round 38. The Black Cats suffered a dip in form, with the team losing four of their last five league matches, and, as a result, they have slim playoffs chances. The hope, though, dies last, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Hatters. The likes of Amad Diallo, Dennis Cirkin, Corry Evans, Ross Stewart, and Elliot Embleton should miss out with injuries.
Luton Town, on the other hand, have been in a splendid form of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive league win. The Hatters look unstoppable at the moment, but beating Sunderland on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the horizon at Stadium of Light, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Earlier this term the two teams played out a 1-1 draw at Kenilworth Road. All Ruddock Mpanzu, Dan Potts, Jack Walton, and Luke Freeman are injured for the away team.
