Luton Town vs Charlton Athletic Prediction

Luton failed to budge from the relegation zone last week after Leeds handed them a 2-1 defeat at home. The hosts have now lost all of their last five games in a running and are currently sporting no more than fourteen points to their name.

It is also worth mentioning that Luton are the third-worst home side in the cluster as of now, and have had a taste of success just twice in their past eight games here. On the other hand, Charlton have a solid nine-point cushion at hand as they make the trip to Kenilworth Road.

Be that as it may, the visitors are also without a win in their past five clashes, the most recent of which was a 2-2 draw at Cardiff. The away side have also been alternating between draws and defeats in their last five outings and have garnered no more than two points from a possible fifteen.

Nevertheless, the guests have been faring well in their previous clashes with this foe here, and have not been at the losing end in any of their past three trips. Given that Luton have also been admitting back to back defeats in their last two games here, Charlton are the favorites to secure all three points in this one.

However, two of their previous three meetings here have seen both teams sharing the spoils. Taking into account that Charlton are yet to ensure consistency in their trips on the road, the safest punt would have to be a double chance, backing the guests.

Furthermore, irrespective of the result, the hosts have found the back of the net in all of their past four matchups on home soil. Meanwhile, Charlton have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last five away clashes on the trot.

Considering that their last three h2h fixtures here have also witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet, it is certainly well within reason to expect more of the same come Tuesday.
