Football League World’s Luton Town fan pundit Dylan Bhundia says that this weekend’s clash with West Brom will prove a serious challenge for his side.
But he insists that the Hatters will always have a chance when playing at home and has been encouraged by their performances in the second-tier so far.
“As in every game this season for us, it’s going to be very tough,” the regular punter told Football League World.
“West Brom are a really good side with a top manager, so any points are going to be hard earned.
“Nonetheless, performances so far have been very good and we’ve shown we’re more than capable of scoring goals, it’s now about overcoming those small concentration lapses and mistakes.
“If we can do that then, at home, we’ll always have a chance of getting a result.”
Graeme Jones’ side are yet to pick up a win in their two Championship matches since winning promotion from League One last season.
A hard-earned point against Middlesbrough on matchday one offered real encouragement, however, and they were cruelly beaten by a 96th minute winner away to Cardiff City last weekend.
But, a midweek win against Ipswich Town in the Carabao Cup, with a squad containing a handful of fringe players, will have thrown-up a few dilemmas for Jones.
But is there anyone who should be brought into the starting line-up on Saturday?
“If he’s fit enough to play, then certainly Izzy Brown,” Bhundia said.
“He played 65 minutes against Ipswich in midweek and was a class above everyone on the pitch.
“He’s technically brilliant, got a strong physique and can pick a pass that most others wouldn’t see. He could be crucial against West Brom and for the coming season.”
