Luton Town host a free-falling Huddersfield Town at Kenilworth Road in the Championship this weekend.

With just nine wins from 26 games, the Hatters are languishing 13th in the standings but will look to reignite their march towards mid-table.

Back-to-back 1-0 defeats to Brentford and Blackburn Rovers on the road have thrown a spanner in the works. Nathan Jones' side are eager to get back to winning ways again.

They'll be confident after seeing Huddersfield aren't in any better shape, as the Terriers are currently stuck in a rut.

In fact, they haven't won any of their last five games, losing four in a row before eking out a draw to Stoke City.

The last time the Terriers beat Luton was way back in May 2008, when both sides were plying their trade in League One.


Luton Town vs Huddersfield Head-To-Head

In 25 meetings, Luton Town have come out on top 12 times. However, Huddersfield are not too far behind with nine wins of their own.

This season, they played out a 1-1 draw in Luton during the reverse league fixture in November.
