Luton Town will welcome Hull City to Kenilworth Road for a matchday 14 fixture in the EFL Championship.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw away to Derby County on Tuesday. They twice came from behind to share the spoils at Pride Park.

Hull City fell to a 2-1 defeat to Peterborough on home turf a day later. Jack Taylor and Siriki Dembele scored in either half to give the visitors all three points.

The defeat left the Tigers floundering in the relegation zone on nine points. Luton Town sit in 9th spot on 18 points and a win would put them within touching distance of the playoff spots.

Luton Town vs Hull City Prediction

Hull City have a good recent record away to Luton Town, having won on each of their last three visits to Kenilworth Road. However, their current form suggests that this trend could be broken.

Games involving Luton Town tend to be open affairs but Hull City's toothless attack might not take advantage of the space afforded them. We are backing the hosts to secure a comfortable victory.
