Backing a Blackburn win

Luton have only lost one of their last five matches whilst Blackburn have lost two in the same period of time but, despite that, we are backing Blackburn to take all three points on Saturday afternoon. The fact is, Luton have been awful at home of late with their last win at Kenilworth road coming back in early May; they've had eight home games since then. Blackburn meanwhile might have lost two of their past five but they've won the other three and, notably, they've also won their last two away games.

Brereton Diaz will score

Our next tip for this game backs Blackburn forward Ben Brereton Diaz to score at anytime. The Chilean international scored 22 league goals for Rovers last season and whilst he only has four goals to his name this campaign he always carries a big threat. It's also worth noting that he was probably unsettled in the early part of the season with Premier League clubs sniffing around whilst the transfer window was still open. Since that window closed, Diaz has notched two goals in three games. Combine that with the fact Luton have conceded in each of their last four games and it's highly likely he'll have a chance or two fall his way!

Can Luton win at home, finally?

This match is an interesting one. There is not masses between the two sides in terms of recent form but, across the season, Blackburn are performing much better than their hosts. With that in mind, the fact Luton are at home should balance the scales in their favour a little but Kenilworth Road has not remotely been a fortress for the Hatters! Maybe that will change here; then again, maybe not.

Luton have a couple of injuries to concern themselves as they prepare for this game. James Shea – their backup goalkeeper, and midfielder Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu are both definitely out but there are question marks over Alfie Doughty and Glen Rea.

Luton Town Predicted lineup – Horvath, Osho, Bradley, Potts, Bree, Freeman, Clark, Onyedinma, Campbell, Morris, Cornick

Blackburn have made a strong start to the new season and whilst we don't want to take anything away from their form it does help to have your best players always available. This game looks like being another example of that with just the one injury doubt; that will see Sam Barnes miss out.

Blackburn Predicted lineup – Kaminksi, Hyam, Ayala, Wharton, Carter, Travis, Morton, Pickering, Diaz, Dolan, Hedges
