Luton vs West Brom Match Preview
Newly promoted Luton Town host West Brom who made the playoffs last season, and will be looking for more of the same this season. Of the three promoted clubs from League One, Luton are the team expected to fare the best, although realistically anything that involves survival will be seen as success. West Brom will be aiming for the same as last season as a minimum, but of course they would love to do better and gain promotion back to the Premier League.
The Baggies started off well with a good away win at Nottingham Forest but failed to back that up last weekend. They were held at home by Millwall, a team they really should be beating if they want to push for promotion so this week is all about putting that right.
On the opening day of the season, Luton were involved in a six goal thriller with Middlesbrough, showing both their attacking intent and their defensive issues. Last week they travelled away to Cardiff and performed with credit to only lose that game 2-1 against a team who were two divisions higher as recently as last season.
Both teams have shown an ability to score, while also conceding goals early in the season and Luton especially could be involved in a few high scoring games this year. We fancy that to continue here and will be backing both teams to score in this game on Saturday. As for the result, we have been impressed with Luton’s start, they are more than capable of competing with West Brom and we think they can take a point from this one.
