Luton Town v Huddersfield Town live stream, Friday 13 May, 7.45pm BST
Luton Town will be looking to register a first-leg advantage when they host Huddersfield Town in the first leg of their Championship play-off semi-final on Friday.
The Hatters secured their place in the play-offs on the final weekend of the regular season. Luton beat Reading 1-0 at Kenilworth Road but the result was redundant after Middlesbrough lost 4-1 to Preston and Millwall suffered a 1-0 defeat by Bournemouth.
Nathan Jones has done a fantastic job at Luton. He kept them in the Championship in 2019/20, then secured a top-half finish in his first full season at the helm last time out. He has now led the club into the play-offs, leaving Luton fans daring to dream about Premier League football.
Huddersfield wrapped up their play-off place with two games to spare. Carlos Corberan instructed his players to stay focused, though, and the Terriers duly ended the campaign with six wins from their final seven matches. The Spaniard will hope that his side carry that momentum into the end-of-season tournament, starting with Friday’s encounter.
Luton have had to make do without several players in recent weeks, with Jones recently admitting that he was praying for “divine intervention” to ease his team’s injury woes. However, James Bree, Sonny Bradley, Harry Cornick and Allan Campbell are all back in action in time for the play-offs. Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu and Elijah Adebayo remain sidelined, though, while James Shea will not play again until next season.
Corberan has switched between a back three and a back four this season but has leaned towards the former of late, with Jonathan Hogg anchoring the defence. Sorba Thomas could be included in the matchday squad but will not be fit enough to feature from the start, while Danny Ward looks set to get the nod ahead of Jordan Rhodes up front.
Kick-off is at 7.45pm BST on Friday 13 May, and the game is being broadcast live by Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football. See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
