Two of the Championship's surprise packages in 2021/22 meet on Friday evening for the first leg of their play-off semi-final as Luton Town host Huddersfield Town at Kenilworth Road.

With Nottingham Forest dropping points, the Terriers' 2-0 win over Bristol City on the final day of the season clinched a third-place finish – 17 spots higher than their position at the end of last term.

Huddersfield's game management under Carlos Corberan this season has been exemplary but it will be tested away against the Hatters, who have lost just four home games in the league all season.

Kenilworth Road is one of English football's most unique and, in some ways, intense grounds to play at and Nathan Jones will want his side to use it to their advantage.

Less than a decade ago, Luton were playing non-league football and it is a magnificent achievement that they're now in the mix to win promotion to the Premier League.

Jones has been a major part of that journey and though taking them to the top flight would be his greatest achievement to date, he won't be letting his players focus on anything beyond Friday evening's contest.

Our prediction: Luton v Huddersfield

It's a fantastic achievement that both clubs have made it to the Championship Play-Offs but neither is here just to take part.

Reaching the Premier League is now a lot more than just a dream and that should mean both sides will look to keep things tight on Friday evening.

Injuries have not been kind to Luton and that may just hand Huddersfield the advantage in this one – though you feel it's going to be a cagey first leg as both sides get a feel for each other.

Our prediction: Luton 1-2 Huddersfield (11/1 at bet365)
