Luton – Watford Preview: Recent News, Latest Form, and Probable Lineups

You can find out more about both teams ahead of their duel here, including the most likely Luton vs Watford lineups:

Luton

With four wins and two draws in the last six games in Championship, Luton has clearly been in good form recently and that is why they managed to get all the way up to the fourth place in the standings. Right now, it looks like Luton is certain for playoffs, but they are also just three points behind Sheffield United in the race for direct promotion to Premier League.

Meanwhile, Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu, Dan Potts, Jack Walton, and Luke Freeman are on the team's injury list at the moment.

Luton Predicted Lineup:

Horvath – Osho, Lockyer, Bell – Drameh, Nakamba, Berry, Doughty – Campbell – Morris, Adebayo

Watford

In the last six Championship rounds, Watford has two wins, two draws, and two losses, so they have been pretty inconsistent lately. Overall, the team is currently in the tenth place in the standings with 55 points from 38 games, which puts them five points behind the first team in the playoff zone with eight games left in the season.

When it comes to team news, Watford is having a problem with injuries, with eight players out right now, including Hassane Kamara, Francisco Sierralta, and Edo Kayembe, among others.

Watford Predicted Lineup:

Bachmann – Porteous, Cathcart, Hoedt – Ngakia, Louza, Choudhury, Kone, Sema – Davis, Pedro

Player to Watch: Carlton Morris

Since we expect Luton to win this game, our player to watch is their forward and top scorer this season Carlton Morris, who seems to be having one of the best years of his career so far.

The striker has sixteen goals in Championship for Luton this season, to which he also added four assists. So, Watford will have to be wary of him in their upcoming duel.
