Luton Town vs Nottingham Forest Preview

Date – Saturday, March 16, 2024

Kick-off Time – 03:00 pm GMT

Venue – Kenilworth Road

In a huge relegation battle, Luton Town will host Nottingham Forest at Kenilworth Road in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Hatters have impressed with their performances on their return to the English top flight but have failed to gather results. They are 18th in the table, three points behind Nottingham Forest with a game in hand.

Luton are without a win in their last seven games across competitions, losing five and drawing two. Before the Nottingham clash, though, they are scheduled to face Bournemouth on the road, which could also affect their clash against the Tricky Trees.

Nottingham have also put in some good performances since Nuno Espirito Santo took over as manager but haven’t managed to string results together. They have lost their last four games across competitions against Aston Villa, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Brighton & Hove Albion.

A defeat against Luton could see them go into the relegation zone with just nine games remaining.

This is one of the biggest games of the season for both clubs. The results of this clash could potentially decide which team gets relegated and which survives.

Both sides have put in impressive performances but failed to get over the line in terms of the results. Luton are missing many key players due to injury. They also have to face Bournemouth in midweek, which would add to the fatigue.

Nottingham, meanwhile, have some key players returning from injuries and have put in good performances against big teams recently.

It should be a hard-fought and tight game.
