A game to end all square
Luton have only won two of their last five games but their home record is very good with six wins and two draws in their last 10. We are making the prediction that they'll be drawing again as they host a Preston side that are unbeaten in six games on the road having won three and drawn three. More broadly though, Preston have seen three of their last four matches end in draws; that's largely the story of Preston's season though. They've drawn 15 games this season, which is more than anyone else in the Championship. Further evidence for the draw prediction can be found in the head to head record; in the last five both teams have won two with the other match drawn.
Goals at both ends
We've already touched on the fact that both of these teams are showing reasonable form in their respective home and away records and, as such, we fancy them both to find the net in this game. Luton have seen three of their last four games end with both teams scoring whilst Preston have had three of their last five end in a similar fashion. With those stats and the general decent form of the sides considered we see no reason why both teams won't notch.

Luton vs Preston: It's predicted lineup time
Luton and Preston have both had periods this season where they have flirted with the playoffs. Now though, it looks like it is only the Hatters who could end up in the end of season lottery. Can Preston deal a blow to their hosts' top six hopes?
Luton Predicted Lineup
Luton remain firmly in the hunt for a top six finish this season, which would be punching well above their weight, but three losses in their last five is nothing like playoff form. Their last couple of home games – one against Chelsea in the cup – have ended in defeat but, in general, they've been good on their own patch. They'll hope for more of the same here.
Predicted lineup – Shea, Burke, Lockyer, Naismith, Bree, Clark, Ruddock, Bell, Campbell, Jerome, Adebayo
Preston Predicted Lineup
If anything showcases what a tough league the Championship is it is Preston. For periods this season they've threatened to join the playoff chase but now they're in the bottom half of the table. They're not a million miles away from being a very good team with just nine losses this season, which is fewer than three sides currently in the top six. Can they find a way to win this one?
Predicted lineup – Iversen, Lindsay, Diaby, van den Berg, Hughes, Johnson, Whiteman, Browne, Potts, Archer, Riis
