Match Preview: Luton Town v Albion

WBA away shirts hanging up in the dressing room

West Bromwich Albion will be determined to maintain their sensational Sky Bet Championship form with another three points at Luton Town on Saturday afternoon (ko 3pm).

The Baggies have won eight of their last nine league matches, keeping seven clean sheets in the process.

Carlos Corberán's side have claimed three successive victories in the second tier and have climbed up to just one point away from the top six.

Hosts Luton Town are also in the play-off picture and sit seventh in the table after a trio of triumphs.

Both sides were in Emirates FA Cup action last weekend and both will need replays after the Baggies drew at Chesterfield, while the Hatters were held at home by Wigan.

Our opponents

Luton Town are hoping to qualify for the Sky Bet Championship play-offs for the second year running and are in a strong position to mount a serious top-six charge in the final few months of the season.

The Hatters, who were beaten in the semi-finals by Carlos Corberán's Huddersfield last term, are seventh in the table heading into Saturday's encounter, with just goal difference keeping them below Middlesbrough and Millwall who are both on 39 points.

Luton, just like the Baggies, have won their last three matches in the league, defeating Norwich City, QPR and Huddersfield Town.

They're strong on home soil, the Hatters, losing just twice in 12 Championship matches there this campaign. Saturday's hosts are nine games unbeaten at Kenilworth Road in all competitions, last losing in front of their own supporters in early September.

Rob Edwards is the man in charge. He was appointed during the FIFA World Cup break in November after leaving Watford in September, and the 40-year-old has made an impressive start. 

Luton have won three, drawn one and lost one of the five fixtures he has overseen, and confidence will be high in camp when they take on Corberán's men this weekend.

From the Albion Archive 

Grady Diangana's second-half brace secured three Sky Bet Championship points for the Baggies at Kenilworth Road in August 2019.

The home side took the lead through Harry Cornick's 15th-minute header, but the Albion winger's double following the interval meant Slaven Bilic's men were the victors. 

One for the stattos

Albion haven't drawn a Sky Bet Championship game since being held to a 0-0 scoreline by Luton back at The Hawthorns on Saturday, October 8.

In the 13 league matches since that encounter with the Hatters, the Baggies have won nine and lost four.

This weekend's hosts, however, have drawn more league games at home than any other team in the second tier (7).

Colours for the road

Albion will wear their green and yellow away kit for the third successive time on their travels down at Kenilworth Road.

The Baggies won in those particular colours at Bristol City on Boxing Day, before playing out a 3-3 draw in the FA Cup against Chesterfield in green and yellow last weekend.

Additional information

Luton Town have provided the following information ahead of Saturday's fixture.

  • Kenilworth Road operates as a cashless stadium.
  • Parking near to the ground is extremely limited and roads next to the stadium are closed on matchdays. As only pre-booked official supporter coaches can access Oak Road (the away fans end), we recommend that fans park near the town centre (eg Powercourt Parking in St Mary’s Road or Bute Street Shoppers Car Park), then walk to Luton Bus Interchange (opposite Luton main train station - off George Square) and take the Luton-Dunstable busway. 1st stop on the busway is CLIFTON ROAD, only 100 yards or so away from Oak Road.
  • There are some 20 steps to access the Away stand from Oak Road. If you’re aware of any disabled supporters who may require assistance to enter the ground via an alternative entrance, please don’t hesitate to contact Luton Town Football Club. Kenilworth Road is an old stadium, with narrow steps down from the top of the Oak Road stand. We’d urge anyone who may require assistance to ask a nearby steward to help. They will be happy to do so.
  • An additional Away Friendly bar is Hightown Club (, although it is some 15 mins walk from the ground.
