12 May 2022

Luton Town host Huddersfield Town in the first leg of the Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final.

At Kenilworth Road under the lights, Nathan Jones' side will look to continue their fairytale season and equally extend their impressive home record having lost only once in the league since the turn of the year.

Huddersfield, similiarly to Luton, have defied the odds to find themselves within the play-off places and will look to return to the Premier League, a division they were relegated from in 2019.

Carlos Corberan will take charge of his 100th Huddersfield match on Friday night and hopes for a positive result to take back to the John Smith's Stadium on Monday. 

Top scorer Danny Ward will be key to that ambition, so too will Sorba Thomas who has provided 15 assists in all competitions.

 

Last time we met:

Huddersfield were 2-0 winners in a closely-fought contest at the John Smith's Stadium last month. Jon Russell have given the home side a lead before Elijah Adebayo missed from the penalty spot and Naby Sarr added a late second.
