Luton Town vs Blackburn Rovers
Date: Wednesday, 22 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Kenilworth Road.
This is a do or die game for Luton Town. They are equal on points with Charlton who are the last teams in the safe zone. If they manage to miss one and the latter even settles for a draw, Luton would secure their seats for the next edition of the Championship. Currently they are on a four match unbeaten run which give hopes to the home fans.
For Blackburn this game decides if they finish in the top ten or not. Currently they are tenth with 63 points. Their last action in the league saw them win against Reading in a seven goal thriller. But the team from Lancashire lacks consistency. Also, the away form will be a concern for them in this upcoming game.

Luton vs Blackburn: Prediction
The home team is definitely not the underdogs in this match. They have done extremely well to progress up to 22nd spot after being at the last place for a long period of time. They have won two recent games against Hull City and Huddersfield.
Even though both these sides are inferior compared to Blackburn, the visitors are on a poor run of form away from home. From five previous matches on the road, the Rovers have lost four. Some of those were against teams in relegation like Barnsley.
Even though the Rovers are on the back foot, their recent performance will give the hosts problems in defence. The visitors took a 2-0 lead in the 6th minute of the game against Reading in that match. So they got their attackers has their scoring boots back on after a drought in away matches.
Also, with both sides scoring in the reverse fixture I say we will have some entertainment this Wednesday. So I am backing the hosts to win this one with goals from both sides.
