An improving Wycombe Wanderers will seek to build momentum when they host Luton Town at Adams Park in the Championship on Saturday.

The Chairboys have picked up back-to-back victories for only the second time this season. They have gone three consecutive games unbeaten for the first time in over four months.

Their first-ever season in the second-tier of English football has not gone according to plan. The Buckinghamshire outfit are rooted to the foot of the league standings following a poor campaign, but remain hopeful of finishing on a high.

With just six games left on their schedule, Gareth Ainsworth's side are nine points off safety and look very much likely to head back down again. However, their recent upturn in form has given their fans some reason to cheer.

In contrast, the Hatters have endured back-to-back defeats to Derby County and Barnsley, further denting their hopes of finishing inside the top 10.

However, they're still on course to post better end-season standings than last year, when Luton escaped relegation by the skin of their teeth and finished 19th.


Wycombe Wanderers vs Luton Town Head-To-Head

In 29 meetings between the sides, Wycombe have won only five times against Luton, who've beaten them on 14 occasions.

The Hatters are currently on a three-game winning streak against Wycombe, including a 2-0 success earlier this season.
