‘Need to capitalise’ – Luton Town v Swansea City prediction: The72

Luton Town host Swansea City in the Championship at the weekend.

Luton Town enter the weekend inside the play-off spots in 6th place – two points ahead of Norwich City.

They will be desperate to get back to winning ways though having won just once in their previous five games. They fought back to snatch a point against top-six rivals Millwall though after being 2-0 down early in the second-half.

As for Swansea City, they find themselves floundering in the bottom half of the table in 15th place, and 11 points behind tomorrow’s opposition.

Russell Martin’s side are winless in their previous three and threw away an early one-goal lead against Stoke City last time out, eventually losing 3-1 in midweek.

Ahead of the game, a couple of our writers give their predictions for the match…

Cameron Winstanley

“This contest almost borders on the realms of must-win for Luton given their poor run of form lately, alongside the Swans’ struggling position.

“Rob Edwards’ side have fared much better away from home this season, picking up just 23 points in 17 games at Kenilworth Road, something he’ll be quick to address heading into the final stages of the season.

“Swansea aren’t left with much to fight for this season with such a gap to both the play-offs and relegation zone, but Martin will be keen to see them turn their form around sooner rather than later. But I believe it won’t be this weekend.”

Score prediction: Luton Town 2-0 Swansea City

Which club is Neil Warnock currently in charge of?

James Ray

“Given Luton’s play-off ambitions, these are the games they have to be taking all three points from.

“Swansea City feel like such a disjointed club at the moment and despite the best efforts of Russell Martin, the form hasn’t improved and the supporters’ distress only seems to be growing further as the season progresses.

“Luton need to capitalise on that and claim an important win here if they’re to earn a play-off finish. They should have enough to overcome the Swans here.”

Score prediction: Luton Town 2-1 Swansea City
