Tip Huddersfield Town - Luton Town
Prediction published on May 13, 2022 at 11:09 PM
Huddersfield Town entertains Luton Town at the John Smith Stadium in this second leg match in the Championship promotional playoffs. The home team gained a valuable draw in the first leg and will feel confident that they can gain the win in this home leg to carry them into the playoff final at Wembley. Huddersfield have had an excellent season and finished the regular season in third place, just six points away from automatic promotional second spot. They stormed into the playoff places by winning their last four matches of the season and on current form they will be firm favourites in this match. Huddersfield have only lost one of their last 14 home matches across all competitions. During the regular season they only lost four out of their 23 home matches. Huddersfield are undefeated in their last five matches against Luton with four draws and a win.
Luton Town missed their chance to grab a first leg lead and now face an uphill battle in the second leg against a Huddersfield team that are in great form especially at home. Luton secured their spot in the playoffs with a 1-0 home win against Reading in their last match of the regular season but they have struggled on the road this season. In their last away match they were humiliated 7-0 by Fulham and through the course of the season they have lost nine of their 23 away matches. In Luton’s last seven away matches against Huddersfield there has never been more that 2 goals scored.

Luton will be happy to sit back in this match and force another draw and which will lead to extra time and then the possibility of penalties. Luton showed great spirit in coming back from a goal down in the first leg but this match will be a bridge too far for them. We are backing Huddersfield to win this match.
