Luton take on the visitors Huddersfield in the first leg of playoffs semifinals of English Championship. The match will be played on Friday, May 13th at Kenilworth Road (Luton).
The Hatters have failed to score against Huddersfield in two games this season. They are extremely inconsistent team that is in an incomprehensible form. Yes, they had a good end to the championship, but there were only minimal victories there. Home field advantage? Perhaps at Kenilworth Road Luton Town is really good and lost only four matches, but they were victorious in exactly half of the other matches. Only four goals scored in six matches by the hosts. Is it enough to win a home victory over Huddersfield?

Recently Huddersfield beat Luton at their field with a score of 2-0. “Terriers” didn't allow anything in attack and that's the main thing. Corberan's wards didn't even finish the regular championship, when it was clear that the team would definitely go to the playoffs, but would not be able to compete for the second position. After elimination from the cup, there were defeats from Bournemouth and Millwall, but, as we see, it was only a slight decline. There was a similar one in November. But for the last 26 rounds in the Championship, these defeats were the only ones. The Spanish specialist has problems with the squad, but the main scorer of the team, Danny Ward, has finally recovered and has already managed to mark this event with a goal scored against Bristol City.
The Terriers have balanced and skilled team. Yes, the rivals are approximately equal in class, but Huddersfield had no obvious failures during the season. But Luton Town completely crumbled against Fulham, did not looked solid in last matches of the season. In such confrontations, opponents play extremely carefully and are afraid to concede. I do not see the benefits of hatters. Despite the home field factor. “Terriers” will be able to play well on the road. I will assume that Corberan's squad will at least not lose. Huddersfield is the natural favorite of this confrontation.
Prediction for the match: Huddersfield to win with +0.5 handicap.
