Luton v Rotherham.

Forgetting the need to win scenario, this looks like a nailed-on home win to me.

Luton boss Nathan Jones tells Sheffield Wednesday fans exactly what they want to hear

Luton host the Owls' relegation rivals Rotherham United on Tuesday in a huge game at the bottom of the Championship

Sheffield Wednesday fans face another nervous watch in midweek.

After the drama of Saturday's action, Owls' fans will be hoping and praying for a favour from Luton Town on Tuesday night.

The Hatters welcome Wednesday's relegation rivals Rotherham United (7.15pm). Wednesday are level on points with their South Yorkshire rivals but have a worse goal difference. Darren Moore's side need Luton to avoid defeat and then do the business themselves against Derby on the final day.

With regards the Kenilworth Road clash, Luton boss Nathan Jones insists his side will be doing their best to make sure their season ends on a high.

Town only survived on the final day last season but have been one of the surprise packages in the second tier this term.

Jones has said that he wants a top-ten finish and victory over the struggling Millers would help them prior to their final game of the season against QPR.

"I'm trying to keep us as focused so we go after points so we're not just resting and cruising until the end of the season," Jones said following their weekend draw at home to Middlesbrough.

"Look, we've done enough to have earned the right to cruise but I don't want us to do that.

"That's not what we're built on. If that happens then others catch you up and you finish in a false position. We're obviously guaranteed a place of where we can't finish any lower.

"But that's not where we want to finish. We should be joint-tenth and against Middlesbrough was a missed opportunity."

With regards the Rotherham clash, Jones added: "We want to finish as high as we can. We're not concerned about any other clubs because we were in a tough place last year where nobody was doing us favours.

"Everybody was trying to relegate us so we want to be at it and try to be as good as we can be."

Tuesday's game is being screened live on Sky Sports, as is Wednesday's last-day trip to Derby.
