Hull City vs Luton Town Tips and Prediction
Hull’s performance at the beginning of the season, when they had eight points after four games, was commensurate with the club’s new owners’ level of ambition and expenditure.
Shota Arveladze’s squad is currently in 20th place, only one point above the relegation zone, and has by far the worst defensive record in the division as a result of a run of five defeated in six games.
Arveladze should consider himself fortunate that he still has a job given that Hull has given up at least twice in each of their previous six games, the last three occasions without scoring a goal for themselves.
The renowned Georgian is under intense pressure ahead of a next quartet of games that are expected to be favorable since he has already managed 30 games with nine victories and 15 defeats.
Oscar Estupinan has scored all of Hull’s 11 goals in the second tier this season—all except four of them—but the Ecuadorian needs assistance in the final third if this squad is to move up the standings. Given the rumors surrounding Nathan Jones, Luton will likely be relieved that Brighton & Hove Albion swiftly appointed a new head coach.
The connection came as a bit of a surprise considering Luton’s inconsistent play this season, but the Hatters have recovered from a sluggish start to score 11 points in their last six games.
A 2-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers prior to the international break kept things going in the right direction, albeit a surprising home loss to Wigan Athletic preventing greater optimism from being felt from their current run.
Luton now has the opportunity to move into fifth spot heading into the weekend’s games, and they will be confident of doing so after winning their past two away games in this level.
Hull City benefitted from the international break at the ideal time, but a Luton team that was gaining momentum did not. We believe that the home team will reply with a performance that is good enough to secure a share of the spoils now that they have had time to reflect on their recent form.
