Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Carter-Vickers, Dest, and more

By

Luton Town remains six points from safety in the EFL Championship and Cameron Carter-Vickers and will aim to help the team avoid relegation this season.

Carter-Vickers joined the second-tier club on loan from Tottenham in January and since has four appearances, including three starts. The 22-year-old has played 90 minutes in each of his last two appearances, most recently a 3-1 road loss to Charlton Athletic. A positive spell over the next few weeks could see Carter-Vickers included in the upcoming Concacaf Olympic Qualifying tournament for the U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team.

Luton is tied for the third-fewest amount of wins this season (9), but will need to defy the odds against fourth-place Brentford at home.

Elsewhere, John Brooks and Wolfsburg visit Malmo holding a 4-0 aggregate lead. Sergino Dest and Ajax have it all to do in Amsterdam against La Liga side Getafe while Timmy Chandler and Eintracht Frankfurt take on Red Bull Salzburg. Lynden Gooch and Matthew Olosunde are both in action as League One sees five matches in play.
