Luton had a great season last time out but suffered semi-final heartbreak in the play-offs losing to Huddersfield. Nathan Jones is a local legend and remains in the dugout with Barnsley duo Cauley Woodrow and Carlton Morris joining while Kai Naismith has departed leaving a hole at the back.
Pre-season has gone well for the Hatters who have gone unbeaten and drew last weekend with West Ham. They will need to keep Kenilworth Road a fortress as it was last season when they only lost four times.
Birmingham could be set for a tough season with financial constraints and a new man in the dugout in John Eustace. The Blues have not brought in many names of note while losing a few established players who were on loan last campaign.
The Midlands outfit need to improve on the road form if they want to avoid struggles winning just four times and losing 11 on their travels. They also need more goals with Scott Hogan (ten) their only player to reach double figures in 2021/22.
