Bury vs Luton Town Prediction & Match Preview

Bury vs Luton Town
English FA Cup
Date: Sunday, 2 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Gigg Lane (Bury).

Bury host Luton Town in the clash of two in-form sides in the second round of FA Cup on Sunday afternoon at Gigg Lane. The hosts began the new season in League Two in a slower fashion, but they grew in form rapidly to climb up to 9th place in the ladder.

Ryan Lowe’s men are on a fantastic streak of four wins and a draw in last five matches in all competitions. They’ve been thriving in the final third netting as many as 18 goals in the process (almost four per game). The Shakers are especially dangerous at Gill Lane where they won five and drew one of past six affairs. They scored an impressive 12-goal tally in last three wins on the home patch. Since the start of the season, Bury won 5, drew 3 and lost just 1 of 9 league games (20-7 goal difference).

Bury vs Luton Town: Head-to-head

The draw was the most common of outcomes in the history of head to head encounters between these two likes.

It happened six times in twelve games. Bury won four and lost two of remaining six.

None of last four head to head matches saw three or more goals scored.

Both teams were, however, on the scoreline in six of past eight H2H meetings.

Bury vs Luton Town: Prediction

The Hatters were pretty efficient of late themselves. They notched eight goals in back-to-back league wins over Plymouth Argyle and Gillingham. Nathan Jones’ squad holds the sky-high 4th place in the League One ladder at the moment. Luton dispatched divisional rivals Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 at home in the first round of the FA Cup three weeks ago.

Since both teams were just brutal in the final third of late, we just have to expect goals when they come face to face on Sunday afternoon at Gigg Lane. The Over 2.5 goals FT bet comes in as a banker at 1.85.
