Luton Town will be playing for their stay on the Championship with a loss at the Kenilworth Road, sending the side to relegation. The side is currently 22nd in the rankings with 48 points, tied with side Charlton Athletic.
Nathan Jones initially opted for Stoke City over Luton Town. However, his reappointment caused heated debates, especially with the Hatters fanbase. The Welshman has done justice to the club managing to accrue 13 points from eight matches.
