Luton Town vs AFC Bournemouth

, KO: 15:00 Apr 6, 2024, Kenilworth Road
AFC Bournemouth

Luton Town are in desperate need of a win to jumpstart their survival quest as they host Bournemouth in a Premier League fixture on Saturday. The Cherries have been superb in recent weeks and should add to Luton's troubles in this one.

Luton Town are coming off a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in their previous Premier League fixture. They were no match for the superior quality of the Gunners and could only muster one attempt on target throughout the encounter.

Time is slowly running out for Luton Town, who remain mired in the relegation zone, three points from safety. Rob Edwards’ men are winless in their last 11 matches, suffering eight defeats in that run.

Kenilworth Road has also provided little comfort as Luton Town have picked up just one win in their last six Premier League home matches. They have been beaten four times in that run but played out a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

In contrast to Luton Town’s struggles, Bournemouth have been excellent in recent weeks. They have picked up four wins and a draw from their last five matches and can climb into the top half of the table if results go their way this weekend.

One impressive thing about Bournemouth’s recent form is that they have shown character to dig deep and secure the result. Their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out is a fine example as they were made to work hard before Justin Kluivert sealed the victory deep in the second d half.

Bournemouth have also shown some quality on their travels and are unbeaten in seven of their last nine away matches. They have picked up five wins in that run, including a 3-0 win at Manchester United.
