Burnley will host Luton Town at Turf Moor on Saturday in the second matchday of the 2022-23 English Championship campaign.
The Clarets enjoyed a solid start to life under new boss Vincent Kompany as they beat Huddersfield Town 1-0 on away turf in their opening game of the season. Chelsea loanee Ian Maatsen scored the sole goal of the game with a low drive into the bottom corner less than 20 minutes into the game.
Burnley will be delighted with their win last weekend and will be looking to make it two wins from two on Sunday as they begin their push for an immediate return to the Premier League.
Luton Town played out a goalless draw against Birmingham City in their opening game of the season. The Hatters were lively in attack as they were quick to pounce on any loose balls in the middle of the park but could not manage to find the back of the net.
The visitors will be looking to pick up their first league win of the season when they travel to Burnley on Sunday.
