The Cherries made it three home wins in a row after beating Crystal Palace by the only goal of the game for our first 1-0 win this season and first clean sheet in the league at home since Boxing Day. Also five games unbeaten. Our next fixture is away at Kenilworth Road the home of Luton Town. The game is on Saturday at 3 pm. AFCB have only played two games between our last fixture at home with the rearranged game against the Hatters and this fixture away against them.

The last time the Cherries visited Kenilworth Road to play Luton Town was back on the 15th January 2022. Both sides were then in the Championship and AFCB were promoted at the end of that season. The Hatters were promoted via the play-offs at the end of the following season. Since coming into the Premier League Luton Town had to make some improvements to their stadium and spent around £10 million refurbishing it.

Since our teams met at Dean Court, Luton Town have drawn at home with Nottingham Forest, lost away against two London clubs, Spurs 2-1 and their latest game Arsenal 2-0.

In our away league games against Luton Town, AFCB have W 7, D 7, L 15.
All competitive, AFCB have W 26, D 17, L 22.

The last time our two sides met (mentioned above) away at Luton, the game finished in the home side’s favour. Luton Town were the first on the scoresheet with Lloyd Kelly scoring an own goal. Allan Campbell made it 2-0 three minutes before half-time. Six minutes into the second half, Emiliano Marcondes scored for AFCB and Morgan Rogers scored the equaliser with 22 minutes of normal time left. Then seven minutes into injury time, Kal Naismith scored the winner for the home team, making the score 3-2.
