Locked at 1-1, the tie is finely poised heading into the second leg at the John Smith’s Stadium, with a place at Wembley on offer.
And it is a difficult one to call. Huddersfield are without a win in nine play-off matches on home soil, while Luton have won on just one of their last five visits.
Now unbeaten in eight matches, the form book slightly favours Carlos Corberan’s side.
It is three years since the Terriers were comprehensively relegated from the Premier League, but they are now just two wins away from sealing a timely return to the top tier.
By contrast, you must go back to 1992 for the last time that Luton boasted top-flight status.
It has been a rollercoaster in the three decades since. The Hatters were relegated from the Football League in 2009, before sealing their return five years later.
Fast forward another eight, and the Premier League is within touching distance for Nathan Jones’ men.

Huddersfield Town vs Luton Town match stats
There is something about the John Smith’s Stadium that has brought the best of Harry Toffolo in recent times.
Indeed, the defender has found the net in each of Huddersfield’s last three matches on home soil.
Neither side boast a spectacular play-off record in all fairness; both are without a win in five such matches.
Although in the Terriers’ case, they have won on penalties on three of those five occasions.
