What is Jamie O’Hara’s prediction for Luton Town vs Coventry City?
Ahead of Saturday’s game, pundit Jamie O’Hara has opted to share a score prediction.
O’Hara has revealed that he believes that Luton will beat Coventry 2-1 at Wembley.
Speaking exclusively to Football League World via Grosvenor Sport, O’Hara said: “This is an unbelievable game, it really is.
“An incredible feat for both teams considering where they’ve been and how low they’ve been down the pyramid and the turmoil they’ve gone through the last decade.
“Both of them, to be where they are, it’s an unbelievable job.
“It’s so hard to call, it really is a 50/50 match.
“Luton Town, at home, it’s a fortress, can they do it a Wembley?
“That’s going to be the big ask.
“Watching them in the semi-final at home, they just were so fit, so powerful, strong, they were direct, winning second balls.
“That pitch at Wembley though is massive, and it’s a big ask to be able to do that for 90 minutes in that game.
“If they’ve got the mentality to play the way they do at home, I think Luton will go up.
“But, we’ve seen some crazy things happen and that pitch at Wembley can just make it an end-to-end game, and I can’t wait for it, actually.
“It’s going to be a good one to watch.
“I tend to think that Luton and Coventry, one of those teams are going to be back in the Premier League, Luton have never been in the Premier League.
“To think they are going to be in the Premier League, what a job they’ve done, both clubs, they should be proud of themselves really considering where they’ve been.
“I’m going to go 2-1 Luton.”
