Luton to Win

Luton are enjoying some R&R on the road this week and having just won at Rotherham, the Hatters look primed for more success at Reading on Wednesday. Luton are in a lofty third place in the Championship and having gone ten games without defeat in the second tier, Town are favourites to prevail again when they visit the Select Car Leasing Stadium. The Royals are winless in nine attempts and our opening Reading vs Luton prediction advises opposing them again in this one.

Both Teams to Score – No

Luton hold the joint-second-best defensive record in the Championship this season and their excellent figures have been aided by a superb run of six clean sheets in eight assignments. Reading meanwhile, have been toiling in the final third and they have failed to score in four of their last nine league contests, while they also drew a blank in three of their last five at home. The Royals might find it difficult to break down the Hatters’ well-drilled ranks, so back both teams not to score here.
