Rob Edwards' Luton are still fighting hard to avoid relegation from the Premier League

- Luton have failed to score in only one of their last 21 league games
- Brentford won 3-1 when the teams met in west London
- Recommended bet:
Over 3.5 Goals

Luton can jump two places out of the relegation zone with a win over Brentford, who in turn can start planning for another Premier League campaign if they take the points at Kenilworth Road on Saturday.

The stakes could not be higher but do not expect the tension of the occasion to stop these front-footed sides from laying on a goals feast.

Team news

Right-sided centre-back Issa Kabore can step back in after being ineligible at parent club Manchester City.

The Hatters are still nursing 10 first-teamers through injury with Albert Lokonga possibly being available.

Ivan Toney should be fit to return to the Brentford front line, though defenders Ben Mee, Rico Henry and Aaron Hickey are all out. Christian Norgaard and Kristoffer Ajer could be available after knocks.

The stats

It has been a poor run of form for Brentford boss Thomas Frank

Both teams have scored in 12 of Luton’s 16 home league games this season, where matches are averaging 3.3 goals per game.

Luton have won only one of their last 12 league matches, Brentford have won only one of their last 10.

The Hatters give up 17.5 shots per game – only Manchester United and Sheffield United concede more.

Luton are the only side in the top flight not to have picked up a red card this term.


Luton, ravaged by injuries and punching way above their weight, continue to sweat blood in the quest for survival and Brentford know they face an almighty challenge getting something out of this trip.

Rob Edwards’ men continue to provide unlikely storylines just when they are being written off, such as two weeks ago when coming from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1.

They remain in the bottom three – last week’s 5-1 crushing at Manchester City saw to that – but they are still in touching distance of both Forest and Everton.

And they are scoring goals. Since a 1-0 loss at Manchester United in November they have played 21 games and only failed to score in one of those – and that was at Arsenal.

They are positive and need to stay positive and that, of course, will leave them exposed sometimes at the back and a side as pacy on the counter as Brentford will relish those openings.

There were four goals when they met at the Gtech Community Stadium in December and more of the same should be envisaged at Kenilworth Road.
