All the information you need ahead of the final day of the season...

Luton Town host Reading on the final day of the Sky Bet Championship season at Kenilworth Road.

Nathan Jones' side know that a win against the Royals will confirm their place in the play-off spots and look to continue their four-game home unbeaten run.

 

The opposition:

Reading's Championship survival was confirmed despite defeat against Hull City after Peterborough lost at home to Nottingham Forest. 

Regardless of the result at Kenilworth Road, the Royals will end the season in 21st position following the six-point deduction they received earlier in the campaign. 

John Swift is their top creator with 11 goals and 13 assists but he has been absent from the matchday squad for the last four matches, meaning Reading will rely on striker Lucas Joao to supply the goals - who has 10 in 23 Championship games this season.

 

Last time we met:

Luton were convincing 2-0 winners when the two sides met at the Select Car Leasing stadium in January, thanks to a Tom Holmes own goal and a second half strike from Allan Campbell. 

Highlights from that match can be found via our YouTube channel below...
