Luton Town vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 29 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Kenilworth Road.
The Hatters are on a good run at home lately. In fact, they have not lost a single game here since October, and their only defeats in overall fixtures had come against some of the best teams in the competition.
They also have a great h2h record against this rival over the past two decades, and especially so at this stadium.
Meanwhile, the Robins are on a worrying run. If not for their game against against the dead-last placed Wycombe the last match-day, they would have been on a long losing run.
Likely, expect Luton to have the edge this Tuesday at the Kenilworth Road.

Luton vs Bristol City: Prediction
The Hatters lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Reading.
In the meantime, Dean Holden’s men posted a 2-1 win at home against Wycombe. Despite taking on the worst team in the league, and that too at home, the Robins had to wait till the 87th minute to slot in the winner.
Going on, Jones’s men were unbeaten in ten of their preceding fifteen overall games, and at home, they are on a run of five straight unbeaten fixtures.
In the process, they had scored three or more goals in two of their past three home appearances, and kept clean sheets in their last two such games as well.
On the other hand, their opposite number had lost three of their last four overall fixtures, and had also lost three of their preceding four match-ups on the road.
On top of that, the Hatters had won five of the preceding six h2h meetings, and are on a four-game winning run at this venue in such encounters.
They have also scored in plenty in almost all of these clashes in the past two decades.
Taking these factors into account, expect Luton to be the better team on the pitch this Tuesday.
