Having decided to leave Luton for Stoke City, the return of Nathan Jones during lockdown naturally divided opinion among the Hatters fanbase at a time when they were well adrift in the race for survival.
However, regardless of whether the club are able to avoid the drop, there can be little doubting that the re-appointment of the Welshman was the right choice with 13 points coming from his eight matches in charge.
Although they still face the real possibility of relegation to League One, defeating Blackburn would leave Charlton being required to beat champions Leeds United, as well as Birmingham and Middlesbrough both needing to avoid defeat.
The financial struggles of Wigan may also lead to a reprieve for Luton, but it remains imperative that they get three points on the board to give themselves every chance of retaining their second-tier status.
With eight points being recorded from four matches, a run which has seen them concede just two goals, Jones will feel that they are playing with the belief to complete the job on Wednesday night.
As far as Blackburn are concerned, there will still be disappointment that they failed to maintain a playoff bid heading into the closing game of the season.
Nevertheless, in a position where they can finish as high as eighth and no lower than 12th, Blackburn have enjoyed their best year in the pyramid since 2015.
While ending the season with three wins from five matches would fill Mowbray with confidence for next season, he will also want to establish whom he wants in his first-team squad going forward.
Despite one or two significant sales being a possibility, there appears little reason why the North-West side cannot remain as dark horses throughout the next campaign.
Luton Town Championship form: DLDWDW
Blackburn Rovers Championship form: LLWDLW
Mowbray could hand a recall to Stewart Downing, who remained as an unused substitute against Reading at the weekend.
Despite contributing an assist at the weekend, Harry Chapman is expected to remain among the replacements.
Luton boss Jones is likely to bring Kazenga LuaLua into the team after his late strike against Hull City.
That may prove to be the one alteration to the Hatters starting lineup.
Luton Town possible starting lineup:
Sluga; Bree, Carter-Vickers, Bradley, Cranie; Mpanzu; Lee, Rea, LuaLua; Collins, Cornick
Blackburn Rovers possible starting lineup:
Walton; Nyambe, Lenihan, Adarabioyo, Rankin-Costello; Travis, Downing, Rothwell; Armstrong, Brereton, Gallagher
We say: Luton Town 1-2 Blackburn Rovers
While Luton have home advantage and something to play for, that may only increase the chances of Blackburn inflicting a defeat on their hosts. However, with much dependent on how Charlton are faring against Leeds, it is difficult to predict the final outcome with any great deal of confidence.
