Birmingham City are back in Championship action this weekend when they take on Luton Town.

The Blues will be desperate to improve significantly this term after failing to reach the 50-point mark last season, finishing 20th.

City won’t want to be involved in any sort of relegation scrap, but the Championship will be as tough as ever this season.

First up is a clash with Luton Town. The Hatters finished in the playoffs last season, and Nathon Jones’ men will look to wind up in the top six again.

Here we round up the best of Luton talent.

Elijah Adebayo

Adebayo had a superb season of last, netting 16 times and providing four assists.

The striker was key to Luton’s success last season, and he will be eyeing another standout campaign this term.

Adebayo stayed is still only 24 years of age, and he is being tipped for big things, making 41 appearances out of 46 last season, remaining fit, and firing as well.

Harry Cornick

One of the crown jewels of Jones’ squad, Cornick enjoyed a fine campaign of last.

The forward scored 12 goals and managed five assists in 38 Championship appearances, also scoring and asissting in the FA Cup.

The 27-year-old has been highly praised for his performances for the Hatters and he is certainly one.

Carlton Morris

Luton moved to snap up Barnsley star Carlton Morris this summer on a deal worth around £1.5million.

Morris was one of the shining lights in a disappointing relegation season for Barnsley last term.

He netted nine goals and assisted three across 30 competitive appearances last season.

He now joins an already talented striker class as Kenilworth Road, with Cauley Woodrow also arriving.

Speaking about the capture of Morris, Luton boss Jones said: “This is a statement signing and we are excited by it. We wanted to add real quality to what we already had in the squad, and Carlton does that.

“We identified him a long time ago and he had a really good game when he played against us, which rubberstamped that we wanted him.

“No-one has seen the best of Carlton Morris yet, and we believe we can get the best out of him. He’ll add to the pace and power that we have.

“He’s got good pedigree and experience for a 26-year-old, but he can still develop. He’ll give us great options up front, and with what we have now, we believe we have as good a strike force as any in the division.

“Everyone at the club has worked tirelessly and we are delighted that we have beaten off several others to get him, because we had real competition from other Championship clubs.

“I thank Gary and the board for getting this through because it shows the ambition that we have. We don’t want to rest on last season. We want to be better.”
