Luton Town’s final game before the Championship play-off campaign is in-front of their home support against Hull City at Kenilworth Road on Monday afternoon.

The Hatters are 13 games without defeat after claiming a point away at Blackburn last week, while Hull City will look to finish the season in good form after losing just one of their last eight games.

To mark the Coronation of King Charles III, the national anthem will be played before kick-off while the players will be joined on the pitch by their families after the match for supporters to show their appreciation at the end of the regular league campaign.

Please read the Love Football, Protect The Game message to supporters to remain in the stands while this takes place.

“Liam Rosenior has done a very good job and is starting to put his own stamp on things from that I see, a real clear identity, they’re moving in a very promising direction, they’ll have a real positive mood around, they’ll want to finish the season strongly and end it on a high and try to take that into next season, so I think it’s been very good for him.

“Really impressive with what he’s done with his staff and the players, and with another transfer window, I think they'll be a very strong outfit next season, so big credit to him."


The opposition:

Hull City have steadily steered away from the relegation zone as the season has gone on after the appointment of Liam Rosenior back in November.

The Tigers are currently 14th in the Championship going into the final game of the season, 13 points clear of already relegated Reading.

Hull City striker Óscar Estupiñán is the top scorer for the Tigers this season, the Columbian forward missed the last month due to injury but has scored 13 goals this term.

28-year-old midfielder Ozan Tufan has been chipping in with the goals during Estupiñán’s absent, the Turkish international has netted three times since Estupiñán’s injury, including two penalties.


Last time we met:

Luton Town moved into the Championship play-off places when they beat Hull City at MKM Stadium back in September, live on Sky Sports.

Alfie Jones’ own goal was followed up by an exquisite strike from Henri Lansbury to secure the three points for the Hatters.
