Luton Town vs Harrogate: Our betting tips
* Betting odds were correct at the time of publication but are subject to change.
Luton vs Harrogate is hardly a game that's going to pull in much of a neutral crowd but, for the hosts, what an opportunity to make it to round four. Find out with our Luton Town vs Harrogate match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Luton to be winning at HT and FT
Harrogate will have been disappointed to have pulled Luton from the hat for this third round tie and you can understand why; they could have had money spinners like Man City or Chelsea come out of the lot and instead they have to travel to a solid but wholly unspectacular Luton side. It will likely see them eliminated without that big payday. Harrogate have lost their last three league games whilst Luton come into this match off the back of a draw with high flying Fulham and a comprehensive win over Blackpool. We have the winning this at HT and FT.
Both sides will score
Our next tip for this game is that we fancy both sides to score. Of course, we've backed Luton for a HT/FT wager so clearly except them to bag goals but their defensive record isn't great; they've only had three clean sheets in their past 10 games. Harrogate meanwhile tend to find the net when they take to the pitch; they have netted eight of their past 10 games. If the away side do grab a goal, at least their fans will have something to cheer.

Luton Town vs Harrogate: It's predicted lineup time
As neutrals, you have to have sympathy for Harrogate. They've reached the third round only to be handed a tie against Luton. No disrespect is intended to the Hatters but when you're a League Two club you're hoping for a non-league side you can beat or a big day out. This game is neither of those things.
Luton Town Predicted Lineup
Even with half a season remaining we can foresee what Luton's campaign is going to look like. They won't bother the playoff chase and they won't get sucked into a relegation battle either. We guess they'll go strong here because, we'll, why not?
Predicted lineup – Sluga, Bradley, Osho, Lockyer, Bree, Potts, Ruddock, Rea, Clark, Muskwe, Jerome
Harrogate Predicted Lineup
Harrogate might be gutted that their big occasion is only a Championship club – and not a big one at that – but they'll think they can spring a shock if they play to their maximum. Expect the best XI available to be named.
Predicted lineup – Oxley, Page, Burrell, Sheron, Fallowfield, Kerry, Falkingham, Pattison, Diamond, Armstrong, Thomson
