After losing their first two matches of the season, Luton Town now face their first Premier League home match as they take on West Ham United at Kenilworth Road on Friday night.
Due to ongoing work at Kenilworth Road to get it ready for top-flight status, Luton’s opening two matches of the Premier League season have been away from home and they have been defeated in both.
They were comfortably beaten 4-1 by Brighton & Hove Albion in the opening match of the campaign and they were then defeated 3-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The Hatters will be hoping that the home advantage will give them an edge in this fixture as they look to get their first points on the board and move away from the bottom-three.

West Ham have made a promising start to this new campaign, defeating Brighton and Chelsea 3-1 in their last two Premier League outings.
Goals from James Ward-Prowse, Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio secured all three points for the Seagulls and saw the Hammers spend Saturday evening top of the Premier League table.
They will fancy their chances of picking up their third straight victory against struggling Luton, but must not fall into the trap of underestimating their opponents.
That said, I do see West Ham coming out on top here and, based on what we’ve seen over the last couple of games, I think there will be goals as well. I am backing West Ham and over 2.5 at 9/5 with starsports.bet.
Also, at an appealing price of 16/5, I also like the look of a Bowen assist with the West Ham forward having made another positive start to the campaign.
