Bitesize Prediction: Peterborough vs Luton Town – 05/04/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Luton Town win

Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport

Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the Championship table, Luton will make the trip to a struggling Peterborough on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Peterborough might have stunned many across the Championship prior to March’s international break with a thumping 3-1 win away at QPR, it appears that was just a minor boost for Grant McCann’s strugglers. Marking their return to action over the weekend with a woeful 4-0 drumming at home against Middlesbrough, the former Hull boss finds his side freefalling their way back down to League One. With just a single victory to their name from any of their last 13 outings, a run that stems back to February 5th, the Posh have also gained a reputation for their rather glaring struggles at the back. Along with an action-packed 3-2 defeat against Swansea last month, it should also be highlighted that Tuesday’s hosts have shipped a staggering 80 second-tier strikes so far this season.

As for the visitors, while Peterborough might be in the midst of a Championship nightmare, the mood in Luton’s camp should be at a real high. Despite having to settle for a lively 2-2 draw at home against Millwall a few days ago, Nathan Jones’ side have gained a string of plaudits on what has been a remarkable campaign. Storming their way into the play-off places and now tipped as a standout pick to clinch a shock top-six finish, the one-time Stoke boss should be smelling a golden chance here. Heading into the international break with back-to-back 3-1 and 4-0 victories against Hull and Preston, the Hatters also have one attacking talisman enjoying a free-scoring run. Along with finding the net in back-to-back outings, 24-year-old Elijah Adebayo has racked up 15 Championship strikes this season.

Bet: Luton Town 19/20 to beat Peterborough in Tuesday’s Championship matchup @ 888sport
