  • Huddersfield lost just four home games this season in the league
  • Huddersfield have won five of their last seven home games

  • Luton have leaked 10 goals in scored just twice in their last four away games

We’re off to the English Championship playoffs for today’s best bet as Huddersfield and Luton square off in the second leg for a chance to advance into a one-off promotion clash to fight for a spot in the Premier League.

The opening leg at Luton finished in a 1-1 draw, with Huddersfield taking the lead within the first 15 minutes before Luton equalised in the 30th minute, with both teams cancelling each other out for the remainder of the game.

Huddersfield now return to John Smith’s Stadium with the home ground advantage and they would be confident of getting the job done in front of their own fans.

Indeed, only Fulham and Middlesbrough won more home games in the Championship than Huddersfield throughout the course of the season

Huddersfield are unbeaten in 14 of their last 15 home games in all competitions and have won five their last seven – including a 2-0 victory over Luton back in April.

With just four defeats all season in the league at John Smith’s Stadium (and those came against top sides in Fulham, Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough and Bournemouth), Huddersfield have proven they are tough to beat at home.

Additionally, Luton haven’t been entirely convincing on the road in recent times.

Luton have conceded 10 goals in their last four away games and scored just twice during that period. Shaky defence and a lack of conviction in front of goal.

Furthermore, Luton have failed to win three of their last four away games, with their last trip on the road resulting in a crushing 7-0 defeat at Fulham.

Not much separated the teams in the first leg, but Huddersfield have the advantage returning home, where it’s taken the very best to beat them this season – and judging by their recent performances on the road, Luton are not up to that standard.
