Tip Reasoning

  • Fulham have failed to win four of their last eight home league games and four of their last five overall.
  • Luton have avoided defeat in seven of their last eight Championship matches and nine of their last 13 away league games.
  • Fulham have scored just ten goals in their last nine games while Luton have scored four in their last five.

Off-colour Whites could continue to stumble 

Fulham’s stumble towards the Football League Championship is set to continue on Monday when they will need to sharpen up their act in both boxes against Luton Town. The Cottagers title train seemed to hit a buffers three weeks ago when they were oddly beaten 3-1 at home by Coventry City and Marco Silva’s men have lost two and won only one of their four games since.

There wasn’t much wrong with their performance between the penalty areas in the midweek home loss to Nottingham Forest, but they gifted their guests a goal and couldn’t capitalise on the opportunities they created at the other end.

Improving Fulham’s defence is surely going to be Silva’s priority when going up a level next season with Tim Ream simply not good enough and it looking unlikely that they can keep their best full-back, Neco Williams, who is desperate to make the grade at his parent club Liverpool.  The fact that the Whites have stopped scoring at the other end piles even more pressure on the defence and, as Ream and goalkeeper Marek Rodak showed on Wednesday, that can bring about disastrous consequences.

Luton in a lean spell, but still scoring early goals 

Luton are going through a bit of a lean spell in attack themselves, having scored only four goals in their last five games. Blackpool doubled the Hatters’ xG in last week’s 1-1 Kenilworth Road draw and they beat Cardiff with around a third of the quality of chances their hosts created in the game before.

As long as Fulham score the opening goal here, everything will be rosy and ought to fall back into place for them, but if Luton hold out or even go ahead, the nerves will begin to jangle. The Hatters have scored the opening goal in four of their last five games and made things very hard for Nottingham Forest over Easter, so we are minded to side with Luton here in the double chance market.

Generous odds of around 6/4 are available about a side that have lost only one of their last eight matches avoiding defeat again while a small stakes play on a 1-1 draw, which would be Luton’s third such scoreline in six, could be a wise move.
