Coventry vs Luton Town team news and preview

Luton and Coventry will battle it out under the Wembley arch today for a place in the Premier League.

It’s been more than 20 years since Coventry last played top-flight football, but they could be just 90 minutes away from a return that would’ve seemed almost impossible just a few seasons ago. The Sky Blues were playing in League Two as recently as 2018 but, guided by long-serving coach Mark Robins and propelled by the goals of Swedish striker Viktor Gyokeres, they finished fifth in the Championship this season to book a playoff semi-final against Middlesbrough.

A goalless draw at home set up a nervy second leg at the Riverside, but a superb finish from Hamer, just before the hour mark, ensured it was Coventry that would be going to Wembley.

Luton were also playing League Two football in 2018 but Rob Edwards’ side were comfortably the best of the rest in the Championship this season, even if they did finish 11 points behind second-placed Sheffield United.

After failing to win their final two league games, the Hatters lost the first-leg of their playoff semi-final away to Sunderland, but centre-backs Gabriel Osho and Tom Lockyer made their height advantage count to secure a 2-0 win back at Kenilworth Road.

Luton were playing in non-league just a decade ago, and haven’t been in the top division since the year before the formation of the Premier League, so securing a return here really would be fairytale stuff.
