After three matches of the Championship this season, Sheffield Wednesday are having a very positive start. Besides the fact that their unbeaten run was stopped by Millwall last Saturday, the team was confident of securing three points as they welcomed Luton Town to their home ground.

For Luton, Graeme Jones’ side was still looking for their first win of the season. They wanted to have a positive start which would be the momentum for their challenging campaign. Up to now, things haven’t gone to plan for them but a U-turn from their trip to Sheffield would be the exact thing that they needed. Unfortunately, Kadeem Harris’ only goal inside the second half helped the home side keep the three points at Hillsborough.

This tactical analysis will provide an analysis of the match between Sheffield Wednesday and Luton Town. Meanwhile, using statistics, we will point out what went wrong with Luton’s tactics against Sheffield Wednesday’s tactics.


Lee Bullen didn’t have Liam Palmer for his 4-2-3-1 formation against Luton as the right-back suffered a back spasm.
