Luton vs Nottingham Forest Predictions

  • Luton have kept clean sheets in four of their last seven home league games.
  • No Championship team has kept more clean sheets in their last eight games than Nottingham Forest (Five).
  • A total of one goal has been scored in the last two head-to-head meetings between the clubs.

Determined Hatters aiming to block Forest’s path to top two

Nottingham Forest’s momentous march towards the top two could be checked by Luton Town’s determination not to lose a second game on the bounce when they meet at Kenilworth Road on Friday. The Hatters were left to rue a missed penalty and a momentary lapse of concentration on Monday night when they suffered a 2-0 away defeat to promotion rivals Huddersfield Town.

There really wasn’t much between the clubs on the night until the Terriers were able to exploit some slack marking from an attacking throw-in to conjure up the opening goal. Luton had just made a substitution that may have contributed to the space opening up and they were undone again late on when defending a corner.

These are small issues that could haunt them again, but Huddersfield have scored the most set-piece goals in the Championship this season and they won’t meet quite the same quality on delivery as Sorba Thomas provided on Monday. Forest are a well-rounded team with a strong defence and central midfield partnership – plus a couple of in-form strikers that are carrying the goalscoring burden.

Both sides capable of keeping clean sheets

Nathan Jones will expect a reaction to Monday’s loss in this home game and there was enough fight evident on the pitch in Huddersfield to suggest he will get it from his team. Luton, who have kept clean sheets in four of their last seven home league games, will need to be solid from the off if they are to stop the Championship’s form horses.

The Reds’ defence has provided the platform for them to win five straight Championship games as they have recorded five clean sheets in their last eight in the league. Stats like those make us think the both teams to score – no bet is a big runner here.

The last two encounters between the clubs – both played at the City Ground – finished with a combined total of just one goal and this early kick-off has the makings of a slow burn where maybe a single goal decides it. Forest’s form dictates that they are the more likely team to edge a tight contest, but Luton have lost only one of their last ten at home so this could potentially finish 0-0.
