The EFL Championship returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Bournemouth welcome Luton Town to the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The hosts head into the game on a three-match winning run, while the visitors have failed to taste victory in their last five outings.

Bournemouth continued their blistering start to the season as they claimed a 1-0 win over Cardiff City last time out.

Philip Billing scored the only goal of the game to hand the Cherries their third win on the trot and their fifth win of the season.

Prior to that, Scott Parker’s men claimed a 3-0 win over Barnsley before beating Queens Park Rangers 2-1 in their two games leading up to the win.

With 18 points from eight games so far, the Cherries are currently at the top of the EFL Championship table, two points above second-placed Fulham.

Meanwhile, Luton Town failed to return to winning ways as they blew a three-goal lead to play out a 3-3 draw against Swansea City last Saturday.

After heading into the interval with a three-goal lead, Jamie Peterson, Oliver Ntcham and Joel Piroe scored in the second half to hand the Swans a hard fought draw.

It was a fourth consecutive draw for Nathan Jones’ side, who have managed just one win from their opening eight games.

Luton Town are currently 12th on the log with 10 points from eight games, level on points with Reading.
