Luton ended a poor run of five league matches without a win in impressive style, when they claimed an emphatic 5-0 victory at home against high-flying Coventry City on Wednesday night.
Just over a month ago, the Hatters were losing to Birmingham City on home soil by the same scoreline. However this time around, Elijah Adebayo and Harry Cornick both bagged a brace and Luke Berry also got his name on the scoresheet, helping the hosts claim their third league victory of the campaign.
Nathan Jones labelled the midweek victory as his best performance as manager of the Hatters and he will be hoping that result can act as a springboard for a consistent run of form as the season progresses.
Eight of Luton’s 13 points have been claimed at Kenilworth Road so far this term, while Blackburn are the only Championship club who have scored more goals on home soil than the Hatters.
A second successive victory on Saturday against Huddersfield could see Jones’s men climb into the top six if other results were to go their way.
After two successive league defeats without scoring against Nottingham Forest and Swansea City, Huddersfield bounced back with a 3-2 victory at home against Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night.
Danny Ward’s 84th-minute header, his second goal of the match, ensured the Terriers came away with all three points for the fifth time this campaign.

Carlos Corberan’s side remain in seventh place despite the win, but they have moved level on points with Blackburn, who currently occupy the final playoff spot.
Huddersfield have made a similar start to that of last season, accumulating just three more points this time around. The Terriers maintained a mid-table position for the majority of the 2020-21 campaign until the latter stages, when they were dragged closer to the relegation zone.
Consistency has been lacking for Corberan’s men this term, however if they can put together a solid run of form then they should be confident of staying well clear of the bottom three for the time being
