Luton Town will host Reading FC in their final EFL Championship outing on Saturday.
Luton will come into this fixture after being on the receiving end of a 7-0 thrashing at the hands of Fulham on Monday. The result has meant that they are yet to confirm their playoff status, with Middlesbrough and Millwall looking over them.
The visitors have escaped relegation by a fair margin despite suffering back-to-back losses. They come into this game following a 1-0 defeat to West Brom last weekend in the Championship.

Luton will have a lot to prove if they are to overcome their 7-0 battering at the hands of Fulham. The result will have hurt them mentally a great deal, especially being so close to the playoffs.
A win on Saturday leaves other equations out of the picture. However, any other result for Luton will complicate the scenario for the last team making it to the playoffs.
A draw is on the cards.
