Luton Town vs Oxford United Match Preview
Luton have made hard work of getting across the finishing line to secure promotion from League One, but are backed to clinch the title in the last game of the season.
The Hatters had looked to be cruising towards the Championship until they recently hit a bump in the road, winning only one of their latest five matches to be caught by Barnsley on 91 points at the top of the table.
Promotion could have been achieved if neither Portsmouth nor Sunderland won their respective games in hand on Tuesday (results not known at the time of writing) but even if not, at least Luton have a home fixture in which to gain the victory that would make certain.
With a goal difference better than Barnsley’s by four, Mick Harford’s side ought to go up in first position as long as they beat Oxford.
Having been held to 2-2 draws by Blackpool and AFC Wimbledon in their last two home matches, there are no guarantees especially with Saturday’s opponents in great form themselves after taking 20 points from the last 24 available.
But the fact Luton have not been defeated at home in the league since March 2018 should give them plenty of confidence and they are backed to seal successive promotions – and collect the League One champions’ trophy to boot.
