The Hatters take on table toppers AFC Bournemouth tomorrow afternoon looking to claim a third league win this season.

Coming into the game on the back of four consecutive draws, Nathan Jones’ side will hope to inflict defeat on the Cherries for the first time this season, who have made a good start to life under Scott Parker.

With five wins and three draws thus far, Bournemouth are proving why they are serious contenders for promotion after narrowly missing out last season.

Following a play-off semi-final exit last term, the Cherries are hoping to get back to the top flight at the second time of asking, following their relegation in 2020.

Dominic Solanke has five league goals to his name and he will be hoping to supply the fire-power to keep alive their hopes for a positive campaign, whilst they have goal threats in midfielders Philip Billing and David Brooks - who have seven goals between them already.

 

Last time we met:

It was an away trip to remember the last time the Hatters visited the Vitality Stadium as Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall's second half strike helped Town secure all three points on their travels.
