Queens Park Rangers v Luton Town - Sky Bet Championship
Luton will host Wigan on Saturday.

Luton Town will welcome Wigan Athletic to Kenilworth Road in an all-Championship clash in the FA Cup third round on Saturday (January 7).

The hosts are coming off a 2-1 comeback win at Huddersfield Town in the Championship on New Year's Day. Duane Holmes put Huddersfield ahead in the 25th minute, but goals in either half from Amari's Bell and Reece Burke helped the Hatters claim maximum points and climb to seventh in the standings.

Wigan, meanwhile, suffered a harrowing 4-1 defeat against Hull City at home in league action. Tyler Smith stepped off the bench to score a late brace to ensure victory for the Tigers after Jacob Greaves and Oscar Estupinan had given them a 2-1 lead.

Luton Town vs Wigan Prediction

Wigan's atrocious run of form sees them sit at the bottom of the Championship, and the Lactics are likely to prioritise avoiding the drop over a deep run in the cup.

Luton, by contrast, are flying high and will want to keep their momentum going with a victory in front of their fans.
