Sunderland VS Luton Town – Match Preview & Prediction

The Black Cats welcome Luton Town to The Stadium of Light, as they look to overcome a disappointing defeat to Sheffield United on Wednesday night.

Sunderland have lost 4 of their last 5 games, and they haven’t won in their last 3 home games.

The visitors, Luton, are unbeaten in their last 5 games, only drawing once against fellow play-off hopefuls Millwall.

With a victory, Sunderland could move up to 8th in the league, and move to 5 points off the play-offs, depending on other results.

Luton, however, could move up to 3rd if they come out victorious, and they could move within 4 points of automatic promotion depending on Sheffield United’s result.

Sunderland haven’t beat Luton since 2007, losing 1 and drawing 3 in that process.

The last 3 fixtures between these 2 have all ended in a 1-1 draw.

Amad Diallo is back in contention, after missing the last 2 games, and Luke O’Nien should still be involved despite going off with an injury on Wednesday night.

Prediction

Sunderland 1-0 Luton

Scorer – Patrick Roberts
