Separated by just two points and three places in the EFL Championship table, Luton Town and Bristol City square off on Tuesday.

The visitors will head into the game seeking to get one over the hosts, having failed to win any of their last three meetings between the sides since 2019.

Luton Town’s blistering run of results took a slight halt last Sunday as they fell to a 2-0 defeat against Sheffield United.

Prior to that, Nathan Jones’ men were unbeaten in five straight games across all competitions, claiming four wins and one draw.

With 35 points from 25 games, Luton Town are currently 13th in the EFL Championship table, two points above Tuesday’s visitors.

Meanwhile, Bristol City returned to winning ways last time out when they saw off a resilient Cardiff City side 3-2 on home turf.

Prior to that, they were on a two-game losing streak, crashing out of the FA Cup at the hands of Fulham at the time.

Manager Nigel Pearson will hope the win last time out can serve as a catalyst for a fine run of form as they look to rise into the top half of the table.

With two points between the sides in the table, we can expect a cagey contest on Tuesday. While Bristol City will look to build on last week’s win over Cardiff, the hosts head into the game as the more in-form side and we are tipping them to claim all three points.
