Luton can boost their hopes of beating the drop when they head to a severely wounded Hull in the Championship on Saturday.
It’s crunch time in the Championship with just two games left to play and this weekend is likely to bring further changes at the top and bottom of the standings.
Luton to Leapfrog Tigers
Luton looked destined for the drop after a difficult first half of the campaign but they have come on strong since the turn of the year.
They have lost just twice since February 12, suffering defeats to Charlton and Reading, and head into Saturday’s game at the KCOM Stadium sitting just one point from safety.
Hull sit one place better off by way of goal difference after losing 8-0 at Wigan on Tuesday, having gone in 7-0 down at half time.
Wigan welcome Luton off the back of a four-game losing streak and boasting just one win on home soil since December 21.
The form book suggests Luton, who are priced at
8/5* to earn all three points, can pick up a much-needed win on Humberside after recent wins on the road at Huddersfield and Swansea, while they also earned a draw at Leeds.
Bluebirds to Boost Promotion Hopes
Cardiff’s play-off berth has come under serious pressure over the last couple of weeks following back-to-back losses but they added a vital three points to their tally last time out when beating Derby.
The Welsh outfit head to relegation-threatened Middlesbrough on Saturday as both clubs go in search of the win for very different reasons.
Boro have struggled to perform on home soil since returning to action last month, losing all three outings, and another defeat could be on the cards on Saturday.
Cardiff have won their last three engagements with the Teessiders and they can be backed at
7/4 to make it four in a row at the Riverside this weekend.
Cottagers to Capitalise on Owls’ Struggles
Fulham’s promotion hopes took a major hit when they lost their first two matches after the resumption of footballing activities last month.
However, a run of five games unbeaten, including a goalless draw at West Brom on Tuesday, has already guaranteed their spot in the play-offs and the opportunity to fight for a return to the Premier League.
Sheffield Wednesday’s season is fizzling out with relegation out of the question, while their hopes of challenging for the top six were ended weeks ago.
With that in mind, they appear to be lacking motivation and should be there for the taking at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
Fulham boast the third best home record in the division, winning 14 of their 22 games, and are priced at
20/23 to add another victory to their tally against the Owls.
