Luton Town vs Nottingham Forest

, KO: 15:00 Mar 16, 2024, Kenilworth Road
Nottingham Forest

It is a relegation six pointer at Kenilworth Road as Luton Town host Nottingham Forest in a Premier League fixture on Saturday. Both teams have struggled this season but Luton have shown some fight and resilience in recent weeks and should have the edge here.

The task for Luton Town with 10 matches left to play this season will be to secure their survival. They have spent much of the campaign mired in the relegation zone and are three points from safety.

Things have been a bit tough for Luton Town in recent weeks as they are winless in their last eight matches. They were beaten 4-3 by Bournemouth in a rescheduled fixture on Wednesday, throwing away a 3-0 first half lead.

While manager Rob Edwards will be disappointed to see his team throw away such a huge lead, he will look at the positives of going three up in the first half. There have also been a few other positive results Luton Town can build on like the 4-0 victory over Brighton and the 2-1 win at Everton.

Nottingham Forest have not fared much better than Luton Town in recent times, with just one win in their last eight Premier League matches. They have been on steady decline down the table and are just three points above the relegation zone.

Things do not seem to be getting better for Nottingham Forest as they have lost their last three Premier League matches. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were beaten 1-0 by Brighton last time out in the Premier League.

The defeat to Brighton also highlights a poor away record for Nottingham Forest, who have found things difficult on their travels all season. They have picked up just one win from their last 11 Premier League matches on the road.

How the bookies view it

The bookies appear to be expecting a closely fought encounter with a win for Luton Town priced at 17/10 by bet365 while a Forest victory is valued at 6/4 with BetVictor. A draw is set at odds 27/10 by William Hill.

Head to head

Nottingham Forest have a 16-11 advantage with 11 draws from 38 previous matches against Luton Town. Both teams played out a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture back in October.

Players to watch

Carlton Morris often carries much of the attacking threat for Luton Town and will be the one to watch on Saturday. The striker has eight Premier League goals this season and is priced at 9/5 by William Hill to find the net on Saturday.

Chris Wood is the leading scorer for Nottingham Forest with eight goals and could be worth keeping an eye on. The striker netted a brace in the reverse fixture and is priced at 23/10 by Unibet to get on the score sheet once again.

Anything else catch the eye?

Given Luton Town’s seven goal thriller on Wednesday, goals could be expected in this one. Over 4.5 goals is priced at 4/1 by 10bet while over 3.5 goals is valued at 7/4 by bet365.

There were more goals after the break in Luton Town’s midweek fixture and Saturday’s clash could be set for a similar pattern at evens with Paddy Power.
