Luton vs Huddersfield
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Kenilworth Road.
The Hatters are struggling a bit at the moment, and have dropped a concerning amount of points in the last few match-days. They are also conceding goals at a worrying rate lately.
Currently they are placed nine points below the final playoff spot, and with the season entering its second half, the team needs to start performing at a much higher level if they are adamant about getting a shot to play in the PL in 2021-22.
The fact they have an impressive record at home this season gives them hope, and on top of that, they also have a good h2h record against this rival over the past few years.
Meanwhile, the Terriers are on a long winless run at the moment, and most of these were in fact losses. And on the road, they have been on a worrying path after 2019.
Likely, expect Luton to emerge victorious this Saturday.

Luton vs Huddersfield Prediction
The Hatters lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Blackburn. In the meantime, Carlos Corberan’s men were held to a goalless draw at home by Stoke.
Going on, Jones’s men were unbeaten in seven of their past eight overall match-ups, and they had also won five of the former six appearances at home. In fact, since October, they have lost just once at this stadium.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a six-fixture winless run, and five of these were losses. They had also conceded two or more goals in four of these six games.
Most importantly, the Terriers were winless in 16 of their last 19 road trips, and they had lost five of their past six away fixtures as well. Note that they had also conceded two or more goals in six of their former eight match-ups on the road.
Taking into account these observations, expect Luton to be the better team on the pitch. Count on them to dominate proceedings this Saturday at the Kenilworth Road.
