Luton vs Sunderland Preview: Team News, Recent Form, and Potential Lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates, Luton vs Sunderland lineups and team news for Tuesday's Championship tussle below.

Luton

Although they ultimately lost the first leg 2-1, Luton took the lead and they had plenty of chances to make things even against Sunderland. So, that can certainly be a good sign for them and a reason for their fans to be optimistic, in addition to Luton being on a run of fourteen games without a loss before the first leg.

Meanwhile, Alfie Doughty came off early in the first leg with an injury, so he is still considered questionable for this game. Otherwise, Luton is in good shape.

Luton Predicted Lineup:

Horvath – Bell, Lockyer, Osho – Drameh, Mpanzu, Nakamba, Clark, Doughty – Adebayo, Morris

Sunderland

With a one-goal lead from the first game, Sunderland can be hopeful of earning a place in Championship Playoff final, which would put them one step closer to getting back to Premier League after years in lower leagues. However, Luton was the better team in regular season as they finished eleven points ahead of Sunderland and they are hosting the second leg, so it won't be an easy task.

On top of that, Sunderland has a long injury list, with Elliot Embleton, Corry Evans, Danny Batth, Ross Stewart, Aji Alese, and Dan Ballard all on it at the moment.

Sunderland Predicted Lineup:

Patterson – Huggins, O'Nien, Hume, Gooch – Neil, Ekwah – Diallo, Pritchard, Clarke – Gelhardt

Player to Watch – Jack Clarke

Although we can see Luton winning this game, our player to watch comes from the other team since he can be the difference in this duel and tip the scales in favour of Sunderland. We are talking about Jack Clarke.

The 22-year-old winger has nine goals and twelve assists overall this term including his assists for the winning goal against Luton in the first leg, so Sunderland will know to keep a close eye on him.
