The Luton faithful were left embarrassed at the last blast of the whistle in the reverse fixture, which they lost by a colossal 7-0 scorecard. With the hosts hardly coping any better at home, it looks like another win is on the cards for Brentford this week.

Luton vs Brentford Prediction
Luton failed to keep their winning momentum going last week after Charlton breezed past them on the road with a 3-1 scoreline. Despite heading into the break with a 1-1 scoreline in that latter clash, the hosts let down their guard soon after and were punished twice after the restart.
As of now, the home team have admitted defeat in three of their past five games on the trot. Deservedly, Luton are currently dwelling at the bottom of the ladder with just thirty points to their name.
On the other hand, Brentford have clear daylight separating them from their foes for the week. In fact, the guests are sitting fourth in the table, and are potentially one of the front runners to earn promotion to the first division.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors are on a five-match unbeaten streak as we speak, the last of which saw them hold Blackburn to a 2-2 draw at home.
To make matters worse for Luton, Brentford have not featured at the losing end since the start of the new year. In sharp contrast, the hosts are sporting one of the worst home statistics in the cluster.
Given that they have not secured the bragging rights in their past three meetings with the visitors here either, count on Brentford to pick up all three points in this one.
Furthermore, despite the poor string of results, it needs saying that Luton have not gone down with a fight. Impressively, they have scored a goal or more in eight of their past ten games on home soil.
Meanwhile, Brentford have managed to keep a clean sheet in just two of their last eight outings. Taking into account that both teams have also found the back of the net together in all but one of their previous four h2h meetings here, expect more of the same come Tuesday as well.
