The two sides are yet to face each other this season as their previous clash, scheduled in December, was postponed due to other competitions.

Luton have struggled to get results this season despite putting in good performances. They are without a win in their last seven games across competitions, losing five of them. They did, however, break the losing streak with a draw against Palace.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, have just one win in their last eight games across competitions. They have faced two teams from the bottom three in a row now – beating Burnely 2-0 and drawing 2-2 against Sheffield. They will now face Luton and would be expected to win, especially with the number of injuries to the Hatters.
