Huddersfield Town are a club who have recently been involved in late drama. Six of the last nine goals that they have been involved in, have come within the last 15 minutes. 

This notion of the game sparking to life in the last quarter of an hour, was seen again on Tuesday night, when the Terriers conceded two late goals to Bristol city in a 2-1 defeat. 

Meanwhile, Saturday's visitors are currently sitting in a comfortable ninth position. The Hatters have won five of their first 10 matches this season and are impressing those who deemed that avoiding relegation would be an achievement. 

Luton Town will be relishing another tip to Yorkshire, as they possess an excellent record in the county. Three successive 1-0 victories against Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham United mean that the Hatters have picked up more points in Yorkshire than the Yorkshire clubs have picked up themselves on home soil.

Team news

It is expected that Danny Ward and Alex Pritchard will remain side-lined against Luton Town.

However, midfielder Juninho Bacuna could well be involved after recovering from illness. 

The front three for the Terriers is unlikely to be changed, with Frazier Campbell, Josh Koroma and Isaac Mbenza featuring in all 10 Championship games. 

From a Luton perspective, Dan Potts, Eunan O'Kane and Brendan Galloway remain unavailable. 

The Hatters were forced into fielding a makeshift back-line against Rotherham, but could be boosted with the return of right-back James Bree. 

Harry Cornick also returned for Luton during the week and is expected to start again against the Terriers.

Predicted lineups

Huddersfield (3-4-3): 

Hamer; Stearman, Schindler, Sarr; Pipa, Hogg, Eiting, Toffolo; Mbenza, Campbell, Koroma.

Luton (5-3-2):

Sluga, Bree, Lockyer, Pearson, Bradley, Cranie, Ruddock, Dewsbury-Hall, Berry, Collins, Cornick.

Ones to watch 

Young winger Josh Koroma is proving to be a handful for defenders and has recorded three goals in his last six games.

He is a versatile individual who can operate across the front-line, but his ability to cut-in and produce something something of high quality, means that he is best deployed on the left-wing.

The 21-year-old has the ability to commit defenders with his pace and trickery, and has a brilliant end product. 

Sticking with the wingers, and Harry Cornick is a player who can cause Huddersfield problems. 

He has blistering pace and looks to turn defence into attack when in deeper positions. 

The 25-year-old is an excellent outlet for the Town, who always know to find the right-wing where Cornick will more than likely be.

Previous meetings

The Hatters won all six points against their Championship counterparts last season. At Kenilworth Road in August, Luton scored two second half goals to record a 2-1 win.

The pair then met post-Lockdown in July. Another two, second-half goals won the Hatters the game. A header from Sonny Bradley followed by a swerving strike from Elliot Lee kept the spirits high amongst the Hatters, going into their relegation battle.
