Bournemouth travel to Kenilworth Road on Saturday to face Luton Town in the EFL Championship as they look to keep pace with Norwich City at the top of the standings.

As it stands, Bournemouth are in second position, three points behind the Canaries, and are managing to get the wins that they need to keep the pressure on Norwich City.

In their last match, at home against Wycombe Wanderers, Bournemouth laboured but eventually managed to win 1-0, with a second-half strike from Junior Stanislas.

Luton Town, meanwhile, have had a decent start to their season and find themselves in mid-table. They are 13th in the league, with 26 points from 19 games, which is a return that they will not be disappointed by.

In their last game, though, they fell 1-0 to a 10-man Middlesbrough side. They were unable to break their opponents down despite the man advantage for the last 25 minutes of the game.

Luton Town vs Bournemouth Predicted XI

Despite Luton's decent form recently, in which they also managed to beat league leaders Norwich City, we are predicting that the Cherries will win this game.

With Josh King also set to return to the Bournemouth starting XI, their firepower in attack should be too much for Luton.

Prediction: Luton Town 1-3 Bournemouth
