Another tough game promises to be on the horizon for Carlos Corberan's Terriers on Saturday as Luton Town have been excellent so far this season, proving themselves to be a tough side to beat particularly at home where they've accumulated the majority of their points this season.
Nathan Jones’ side were last in action last Saturday with their trip to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers, The Hatters came back from that game empty handed after a 1-0 defeat, and Jones will be demanding a response from his team this weekend.
The two sides currently occupy mid table spots in the league table, with Luton sitting 13th, while Huddersfield are currently in 15th place in the standings. A win would go a long way for either side tomorrow, as three points could lift Luton in to the top half of the table, while a win for Huddersfield would see them climb above Luton in the standings.
Luton boss Nathan Jones doesn't appear to have any fresh injury concerns in his team tomorrow, and he may consider naming an unchanged side from the defeat in Lancashire a week ago.
Jones may however consider handing debuts to deadline day signings Elijah Adebayo, and former Huddersfield winger Tom Ince but both are likely to feature off the bench if they are to be included in the matchday squad.
Carlos Corberan will also be without defensive trio Christopher Schindler, Richard Stearman and Rarmarni Edmonds-Green who are still injured. While the Spanish head coach is also still without attacking duo Danny Grant and Danny Ward.
A boost for Terriers is the news that Jonathan Hogg is back available, he's expected to captain the Terriers in Bedfordshire.
Luton Town (4-1-4-1)
Sluga; Pearson, Lockyer, Bradley, Potts, Rea, Ruddock-Mpanzu, Dewsbury-Hall, Cornick, Clark, Collins.
Huddersfield Town (4-3-3):
Schofield; Pipa, Keogh, Sarr, Toffolo, Holmes, Hogg, O'Brien, Mbenza, Aarons, Campbell.
Ones to watch
Kiernan Dewsbury Hall - Luton Town
Among a handful of impressive performers for the Hatters so far this season has been Leicester City loanee Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, who has two goals and three assists to his name. The 22-year-old has put in some excellent displays in the midfield for Luton, and if he's on form this weekend he could swing the match in favour of Luton.
Pipa - Huddersfield Town
Spanish right back Pipa has been excellent for Huddersfield Town this season, and you could make a compelling case that the 23-year-old has been the Terriers best signing this season. An full back with qualities in both defence and attack, he could cause Luton Town all sorts of difficulties on Saturday.
The last time these two sides met was back in November 2020 when they played out a rather uninspiring 1-1 draw in West Yorkshire. These sides have avoided each other quite a lot over the last decade or so, with the only other two recent meetings both last season, and both won by Luton Town.
