ELC Championship : Luton vs Middlesbrough Preview

Luton return to the Championship for the first time since 2007 after winning League 1 last season in impressive style.  Bookmakers think they will struggle on the return and have them as seventh favourites for the drop.  Graeme Jones is the new man in the dugout while the club have lost a few key players over the summer.

Kenilworth Road will host Friday’s football game between Luton and Middlesbrough, who face each other at the start of the 2019/2020 Championship season.

At Kenilworth Road, they managed to go unbeaten in the league last season and have not lost a league match here since 2018.  In each of their last six and nine of their last ten in front of their own fans they have scored over 1.5 goals.

Both Team will play a good show

The Hatters impressed in the 2018/2019 League One campaign, with the team finishing the process in top position in the standings, three points clear of second-placed Barnsley. Graeme Jones’ troops are ready for their Championship debut and we are positive that they are going to leave their hearts on the field in the opening match of the season

Middlesbrough, on the other hand, aim to return to the English top flight, but seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers. Bookmakers are struggling to split the pair and you can see why as both have new men in the dugout and have seen a turnover in player personnel.  Luton have been leaking goals in pre-season and it might take Jones time to get his system across. while Boro will also look to entertain more under Woodgate and we think goals are the order of the day. A good day of competitive football will be seen here.


Score Prediction : OVER 2.5 GOALS
