The streak includes consecutive wins over Oxford United and Scunthorpe United in last two rounds. Luton Town bagged a fine five-goal tally during the process. They notched three past the Iron on Saturday. Striker Elliott Lee was among goalscorers last weekend, taking his league tally to four.

Maintaining such fine thread and form will, however, by no means be an easy task for the team led by Nathan Jones here. Luton are up against the Tykes who are looking to make an immediate return to the second class football. The Tykes are clearly one of the strongest sides in this division and they currently sit fourth with 6 wins, 4 draws and a single loss in 11 games so far.

Barnsley vs Luton Town: Head-to-head

The two sides will take on each other for the first time in 11 years on Saturday.

Barnsley have a positive head to head record with 9 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats in 154 matches against the Hatters.

Interestingly, three of Luton’s H2H wins came just at Oakwell Stadium.

Barnsley vs Luton Town: Prediction

Barnsley had a challenging trip to The ABAX Stadium last weekend when they played the second-placed Peterborough United in the derby of the Matchday. Nevertheless, Daniel Stendel’s men made it entirely a one-way street bagging as many as four goals without any response to confirm a strong promotional bid this term.

The German manager has a deadly attacking duo in the likes of Brad Potts and Kieffer Moore who have combined the total of 11 goals in 11 games so far in the season. Luton’s defense is anything but rock-solid and they will likely face serious troubles stopping this red-hot attacking line on the occasion.
