Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Luton will look to make amends for back-to-back losses to Brighton and Chelsea when they host Gillingham to their Kenilworth Road in the EFL Cup last 64. The Hatters do not seem to be competitive in the Premier League, but they are surely capable of matching the Gills in front of home fans. Both Dan Potts and Jordan Clark are sidelined with injuries, while Gabriel Osho will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
The League Two side, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Colchester, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on the home side. To make things even worse for the away team, midfielder Ethan Coleman is banned for the match following his sending-off in the last league fixture. In their last meeting in a competitive match the two sides played out a 2-2 draw.
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.
