Albion take on Luton in a league fixture for the first time since 2007 this weekend, we take a look back at the last time the two teams met in the league.
It was a cold, wet Friday night at the Hawthorns when Luton rocked up at the Hawthorns to take on an Albion side who had just been comfortably beaten 3-1 by bottom of the league Southend.
Richard Chaplow first went close for the Baggies as his effort hit the post after good work from striker Kevin Phillips.
Fan-favourite Jason Koumas then opened the scoring for the Baggies with a wonderful solo goal. The midfielder cut in from the left, beat two players before brilliantly curling the ball into the bottom right corner.
The Hatters drew level on the hour mark, thanks to a strike from full-back Keith Keane after a neat one-two.
Ten minutes later and Luton took the lead, a simple tap-in for Warren Feeney.
It wasn’t until the 88th-minute that the Baggies drew level. A long ball into the box from Paul Robinson was headed on by Zoltan Gera, which found Phillips. He resisted several attempted tackles to poke home the equaliser.
A draw seemed the likely result until Albion were awarded a free-kick on the edge of the penalty area on the right. Phillips headed home Koumas’ ball into the box to grab his second of the game and Albion’s third. Pandemonium at the Hawthorns as fans from the Birmingham road end spilt onto the pitch, a big-win which would kick-start Albion into 6 wins from their next 8 games.

If Albion can perform like this again this weekend, then we’ll be on to a good game.
Luton have already shown the league that they are not to be messed with, and will be up for the visit of Albion.
It is a difficult place to go, with a great atmosphere and a tight, old fashioned ground.
Slav’s men will have to be really up for it.
