Derby County vs Luton Town Prediction

Derby have shown a firm resolution in recent weeks that has made it difficult to breach their defense.

The hosts are likely to defend compactly while attempting to catch Luton Town on the break. This could translate into a cagey game of few chances and we are predicting a share of the spoils in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Derby County 1-1 Luton Town
