luton vs middlesbrough Tip Reason:

Luton return to the Championship on Friday night just 15 months after playing in League Two. A rise up the ranks has brought them back to the second tier, but how far can Luton go this season? They kick things off against a Middlesbrough side who are going through changes, as they’ve appointed Jonathan Woodgate as the successor to Tony Pulis. They finished narrowly outside the top six last season, but will radical change kick them on a gear or leave them with a more entertaining – but frustrating – season? Luton are on the back of successive promotions, but this is a new start for the club. They’ve appointed Graeme Jones after losing Nathan Jones to Stoke during the previous campaign. Now he’s tasked with taking the club to safety in the second tier, but the departures of Jack Stacey to Bournemouth and James Justin to Leicester have been big blows. However, how will the squad that’s leftover deal with their return to the Championship? Luton should get a good test from Middlesbrough this weekend after Boro finished up in seventh place last season. However, they slipped from a solid playoff spot late in the campaign, with Tony Pulis being hounded out of the Riverside following a dismal season with terrible football. That’s left the club demanding a more adventurous style going forward, but former centre-half and Pulis’s ex-assistant Jonathan Woodgate seems like a risky option when it comes to delivering a more offensive style. Woodgate is expected to start with a 4-3-3 system which is set to include Britt Assombalonga and Ashley Fletcher, two capable forwards. There shouldn’t be too much concern about Boro’s ability going forward, as they finished 17 goals short of the xG total last term. That means that Boro are creating the right chances, they just need a system which will commit more men forward. If Woodgate can do that, he’ll get somewhere. However, maintaining the Pulis-level of defending is another story. Middlesbrough had the joint-best defence in the league last term. That’s already taken a hit, with the departure of Aden Flint to Cardiff City weakening the defence which Pulis built. Together, that back line faced over 400 shots last season and should have conceded over 40 goals from open play according to xG data. However, the fact that they conceded just 24 shows how well Pulis managed the defence. Replicating that as a rookie manager is likely to be too tough, even for former defender Woodgate. There should be more of an opening for Luton against this Middlesbrough, while the hosts will be confident at their own ground. They went unbeaten at home throughout last season, hitting 2.48 goals per game. They’ve got enough going forward to take advantage of Boro, while we expect to see immediate results for the visitors in their pursuit of attacking football. With that in mind, we’re backing both teams to score as our tip for this clash. Middlesbrough’s more attacking style may hurt their defence, but it should benefit Britt Assombalonga. The forward scored four goals in his final five league games, while with more support in attack he should get more space. We’re backing the forward to score in the league opener.
