Luton Town vs Gillingham Match Preview
Luton are marching towards automatic promotion and can take another big stride on the way to the League One title with a comfortable win against Gillingham.
The Hatters came up from League Two only last season but have made short work of this division, holding a five-point advantage at the top of the table before Barnsley’s local derby against Doncaster on Friday night.
Manager Nathan Jones’ departure to Stoke City has not disrupted the momentum one iota, for Luton if anything have done even better under Mick Harford who initially was reluctant to move into the hotseat from his role as the club’s head of recruitment.
Gillingham, meanwhile, are right in the thick of a relegation dogfight that still encompasses half of the clubs in League One and they need to ensure they collect a few more wins before the end of the season to be safe from the drop.
Steve Lovell’s side have improved defensively of late but Tuesday’s defeat by the only goal of their match at home to Bristol Rovers was a blow.
With a superb home record, it is very difficult to oppose Luton here and after seven clean sheets in their last 10 games they look to have everything in place for another decisive success.
