Sports Mole previews Luton Town's Championship clash with Sheffield Wednesday at Kenilworth Road on Wednesday, with team news, lineups and predictions.

Sheffield Wednesday will look to end a run of four Championship matches without a win on Wednesday when they face the division's bottom side Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

The Hatters have lost their last two league fixtures and sit nine points adrift of safety, while the Owls are still just six points below the playoffs.

Match preview

Luton missed out on a valuable point last time out against Cardiff City due to a late Lee Tomlin winner and now face an uphill struggle to stay in the division.

With six defeats from their last seven Championship fixtures no team in the league is enduring as poor a run of form as Graeme Jones's side.

Luton also have the worst home record in the second tier and have taken just 18 points from their 15 matches at Kenilworth Road.

The Hatters lost out in the reverse fixture with Sheffield Wednesday too, where a second half goal from Kadeem Harris secured a 1-0 win for the home side.

Having taken just two points from their last four Championship fixtures, Garry Monk's side have slipped down the table but remain in contention for promotion.

With a clean sheet against Luton in their last three meetings and the eighth best away record in the division, Sheffield Wednesday look to be favourites for this match on paper.

However, Monk's side have scored just four goals in their last six league fixtures and with Steven Fletcher still out injured, they need to find more goals as soon as possible.

The arrival of Connor Wickham should help in that regard, while over the course of the season no team has scored more goals away from home.

Team News

Luton are set to be without Sonny Bradley, Brendan Galloway and Martin Cranie for Wednesday's meeting after all three were ruled out.

Danny Hylton is also said to be a doubt, while Kazenga LuaLua could make his return to the starting 11.

Sheffield Wednesday's top scorer Fletcher is still an absentee and is not expected to return to the squad until March, with loanee Wickham set to make just his second appearance for the club.

Massimo Luongo and Morgan Fox are closing in on returns from injury, but remain doubts for this meeting.

Meanwhile, January signings Josh Windass and Alessio Da Cruz should retain their positions in the team after making their debuts against Barnsley.

Luton Town possible starting lineup:
Sluga; Bree, Pearson, Carter-Vickers, Potts; Moncur, Mpanzu, Tunnicliffe; LuaLua, Collins, Brown

Sheffield Wednesday possible starting lineup:
Dawson; Iorfa, Lees, Borner, Palmer; Lee, Bannan, Windass; Cruz, Wickham, Murphy

We say: Luton Town 0-2 Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday may have been struggling for form of late but they should still have enough to overcome a Luton side in freefall. With the Owls still in contention for a playoff push, expect their quality to show at Kenilworth Road.
