Even though they were unsuccessful in recent h2h meeting versus Reading, Luton Town’s fans celebrated big 3-0 victory against this opponent earlier in the League Cup. Also, squad has finally ended the draught and secured home win in the Championship on 29th December against Bristol City. It was a narrow contest and could go either way to be honest, but Dewsbury Hall made sure Luton gets the whole prey. Team is miles away from the relegation zone, which is the primary goal for the season.
As for their opposition, Veljko Paunovic’s squad is looking rock-solid lately after collecting seven points in the last three domestic outings. 2-1 win against Huddersfield Town was quite impressive. Once again, the hero was Lucas Joao who scored two times.

As for the secondary option, we are going to pick Luton Town to qualify. As mentioned above, Royals might leave out some of the best players from starting lineup, while hosts were already successful against this opponent in cup competitions before.
