Bournemouth welcome struggling side Luton Town to the Vitality Stadium on Saturday as they continue to push for Premier League return.

Relegated back into the Championship last year after five consecutive seasons in the top-flight, the Cherries are firmly on course for promotion once again.

With 11 wins and just three defeats from 23 games, Jason Tindall's side is currently third in the standings with 42 points, only five off leaders Norwich City.

They've scored the joint-highest number of goals in the campaign so far with 38, while their record of just three losses is also the joint-lowest in the division right now.

So far so good for the side from the southwest. However, Luton Town are staring down the barrel of a gun.

They're 12 points off the Cherries on 14th right now and have won just once from their last five games in the league.


Bournemouth vs Luton Town Head-To-Head

In 61 meetings between the sides, Bournemouth hold a slender advantage with 24 wins to Luton's 20.

The sides clashed in a league game in December last year for the first time since January 2009 in a goalless stalemate, but Cherries had thrashed the Bedfordshire outfit 4-0 at home in the FA Cup at the start of 2020.

Barring a stunning collapse, Bournamouth should nick this one pretty easily. They have the might as well as the form to see off the Hatters, who might have to wait for sometime before picking up another win.
