  Bradley and Clark in: Luton Town’s strongest XI now the transfer window is shut – Do you agree? Luton Town sit comfortably in mid-table after five games of this Championship campaign. The Hatters began the season with a convincing 3-0 victory over Peterborough United, before a 3-2 defeat at The Hawthorns the week after. A 1-0 away win at Barnsley followed, but a crashing 5-0 defeat at home to Birmingham City made it […]The Hatters began the season with a convincing 3-0 victory over Peterborough United, before a 3-2 defeat at The Hawthorns the week after.

Bristol City have made a steady start to the Championship this season, picking up eight points from their opening six games.

In what is a points tally that leaves Nigel Pearson’s men in 11th place, The Robins are yet to pick up a victory at home this season.

In fact, Bristol City are without a home win since January, a statistic they will be striving to put to bed on Wednesday night against Luton.

The visitors will travel with confidence after a 98th minute Luke Berry goal earned Luton a point against Blackburn Rovers at the weekend.

Like the hosts, Luton find themselves on eight points this season, possessing the exact same record as The Robins, but they are a place below because of their inferior goal difference.

  26 questions about Luton Town’s managers from over the years – Can you get full marks? Luton Town have managed to enjoy a solid enough start to the Championship season but the Hatters will feel that they could have more points on the board than they do at this stage.

Excluding a surprising 5-0 loss at home to Birmingham City, The Hatters will be relatively happy with their start to the new campaign.

Sky Sports pundit David Prutton cannot pick out a winner, predicting a 1-1 draw.

The verdict

A 1-1 draw seems like a fair assessment when taking everything into account, especially when considering that only goal difference splits the two thus far.

Luton have travelled well this season, with their sole defeat coming in a well-contested 3-2 loss at West Brom.

The hosts will be hoping to rectify their home form sooner rather than later, and whilst it has been a decent start, that all-important home win still eludes them.

A win for either side will see them push towards the much-desired play-off places.

Swansea City headlines as Swans man 'clobbered', Middlesbrough twist in chase for Celtic target and the 'lifeline' offered to ex-Bristol City star .
These are your Swansea City headlines on Monday, September 20 . Lansbury 'clobbered' Manning, says pundit Quest pundit Jobi McAnuff says Henri Lansbury is a "very, very lucky boy" after he was allowed to stay on the field following his reckless challenge on Swansea's Ryan Manning at the weekend. Manning was left in heap after Lansbury attempted to take a free-kick in the first half at Kenilworth Road and it sparked a furious reaction. In the end both players were booked but McAnuff says Lansbury should have been given his marching orders. “I think Henri Lansbury's a very, very lucky boy," he said.
