Midweek matchdays under the lights at Kenilworth Road are back on Wednesday evening as the Hatters take on Coventry City!

Following a narrow 2-1 defeat against league leaders AFC Bournemouth on Saturday, Nathan Jones' side will hope to get back to winning ways, especially in-front of a home crowd.

Coventry have been the surprise package in the Championship so far with six wins from their first nine matches. 

After a 16th place finish last term, Mark Robins and his players are heading towards a better finish thanks to their superb start, especially since their return to the Coventry Building Society Arena, where they have won all five of their first five home matches.

With one win on the road thus far, they will turn to top scorer Viktor Gyokeres to provide on Wednesday evening, having already scored seven times this season.

 

Last time we met:

The Hatters were convincing 2-0 winners against ten-man Coventry when the two sides met earlier this year.

James Bree scored his first senior goal and Elijah Adebayo scored from the penalty spot after Kyle McFadzean was adjudged to have handled the ball in the area.

Highlights from that match can be watched below…
