Luton Town vs Wolverhampton tips: Hatters backed to win first Premier League point
Former Premier League midfielder Robbie Savage believes Luton Town have a real chance of securing their first Premier League point against Wolves.
I think Luton have had unwarranted criticism. I think they’ve done unbelievably well to get into the Premier League.
I think it’s going to be very very tough but what a job Rob Edwards did to get them into the Premier League.
Not been a great start for Wolves but unfortunately for Rob Edwards, I don’t think they’ll win the game, but I think they’ll get their first point of the season. I’m going for a 1-1 draw.
Robbie’s Pick: Luton 1-1 Wolverhampton
Luton Town will be searching for their first win of the season without the injured trio of Jordan Clark, Gabriel Osho and Dan Potts. Ross Barkley is a doubt and could yet feature.
Wolves, on the other hand, will have Joseph Hodge on the sidelines. Rayan Ait-Nouri is a doubt and could also miss out.
- This is the first top-flight meeting since 1983/84
- Wolves are unbeaten in their last seven league games against Luton
- Luton are looking to avoid becoming the sixth team in Premier League history to lose their first five games of the season
Other suggested bets from Planet Sport
Luton Town may be bottom of the Premier League ladder, though Rob Edwards’ side don’t appear a million miles away from bagging their first points.
The newly-promoted side lost their last two games by a single-goal margin, with both defeats coming against Fulham and West Ham – two sides currently in the top half of the table.
In Wolves, the Hatters will sense a real opportunity of getting at least a point, especially at Kenilworth Road.
Gary O’Neil’s side are playing good, fast-paced football, though with only three points to their name from five games, it’s clear that turning opportunities into goals is becoming a serious problem.
