The Hatters are on the road for the first time in 2021 looking to get back to winning ways against promotion-chasing AFC Bournemouth.
Town will be looking to put midweek defeat against Queens Park Rangers behind them when they travel to the Vitality Stadium to face the Cherries – who have lost once in their last nine matches in all competitions.

High-flying Bournemouth were relegated from the Premier League last season after five successive seasons in the top flight.
Similarly to the Hatters, the Cherries enjoyed a meteoric rise through the divisions, starting 2010 in League Two and five years later were in the Premier League.
The Manager – Jason Tindall
Jason Tindall took over duties following Eddie Howe’s departure after last season and has carried on the good work with this Bournemouth team.
Tindall, who was assistant to Howe as the club progressed through the divisions, and his team currently occupy third place in the league.
Main Threat – David Brooks
After a long spell on the sideline last season and early this campaign too, David Brooks has been in sensational form as of late, providing three goals and five assists.
The Wales international is extremely creative and a highly regarded youngster who burst onto the scene with Sheffield United, before switching to the South Coast.
When and where?
Kick-off is 3pm at Vitality Stadium on Saturday 16 January.
Man in the middle?
The referee for Saturday’s contest is David Webb – who recently took charge of the Hatters’ 1-1 draw with Birmingham City. He has officiated 19 games in total this season, dishing out 49 yellows and three red cards in the process.
The two sides met prior to Christmas and produced an end-to-end 0-0 draw at Kenilworth Road.
The Hatters will be keen to nullify the Cherries once again as Nathan Jones’ side aim to make amends for the midweek defeat to Queens Park Rangers.
