Huddersfield Town travel to Kenilworth Road to take on Luton Town - a side just one point above them in the Sky Bet Championship.

The match will take place on Saturday 6 February 2021 and will kick-off at 3pm.

Town will look to secure all three points away at Luton, coming off the back of a 1-1 draw against Stoke City at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Whilst, the Hatters will be looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat against Blackburn Rovers.

THE OPPOSITION

Nathan Jones returned for his second managerial spell at Luton Town in May 2020 helping guide the Club away from the relegation zone.

So far this season, his side sit 13th in the Sky Bet Championship with a game in hand – eight points off the relegation zone and nine off the Play-Off places!

With a mix of young talent and experience throughout their squad, the Hatters have a good balance and have impressed this year.

On their travels this season, the Hatters have been victorious on four occasions – the last coming at AFC Bournemouth on 16 January 2021.

FORM GUIDE

Luton Town come into this match with two wins in their last five Sky Bet Championship fixtures.

They’ve picked up six points during 2021 following wins over Reading and AFC Bournemouth.

Town on the other hand picked up their first points of the year against Stoke City on Saturday after a 1-1 draw.

The Terriers have only won twice on the road all season – the last away point that was picked up was against Coventry City in mid-December.

ONES TO WATCH

James Collins

The Irish striker has scored nine goals in competitions this season with six coming in the Sky Bet Championship!

He’s been virtually ever-present this season and his performances have kept him in the Republic of Ireland squad. He’s now earned six caps for his Nation.

Collins has made over 160 appearances for Luton Town and was integral in the Club’s promotion from Sky Bet League 2 all the way to the Sky Bet Championship.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall

Arriving on loan from Leicester City in October, Dewsbury-Hall settled into life at Luton immediately.

With multiple man of the match and back-to-back Player of the Month awards for the Hatters, he has become a key player, pulling the strings in the middle of the park.

The box-to-box midfielder has scored two goals and set up three for his teammates this season.

Sonny Bradley

The central defender has been a key contributor to Luton’s solid defence this season; they have only conceded 28 goals this season.

Bradley has been virtually ever-present this season, he’s been marshalling the backline and is a threat from set pieces.

He scored against the Terriers at the John Smith’s Stadium last season as the Hatters ran out 2-0 winners.
