Bristol City will trade tackles with Luton Town at Ashton Gate on Sunday, with three points on the line in the EFL Championship.

The hosts come into this game off the back of a 2-1 defeat away to Wycombe Wanderers.

Second-half goals from Uche Ikpeazu and Adebayo Akinfenwa helped the basement side secure all three points. Luton Town were held to a goalless draw at Kenilworth Road by Reading.

Both sides have very little left to play for this season, as they are neither in danger of relegation nor in the fight for promotion.

Luton Town are the higher-placed of the two, sitting in 12th spot, with 57 points from 42 matches to date. Bristol City are further down in 16th position on 51 points.

Their most recent meeting came in December 2020 when goals from Glen Rea and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall gave Luton Town a 2-1 home win.

Bristol City have been in extremely poor form of late and are currently on a seven-game winless run. Luton Town have won four of their last seven games.
