Luton Town vs West Brom Prediction

The two sides still have outside chances of making the playoff spots and are likely to each go all out for the win against a direct contender.

West Brom have struggled in attack of late, while Luton Town's strong home record could prove beneficial. Although one side could nick the win, we are backing the spoils to be shared in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Luton Town 1-1 West Brom
