Bournemouth are one of just two Championship sides yet to lose a league game this season, along with third-place West Bromwich Albion.
The south coast side recorded a third successive victory last weekend as Philip Billing’s second-half strike proved enough to beat Cardiff City 1-0.
Scott Parker described his side’s performance in South Wales as “superb” and he will have been delighted with his start to life as Cherries boss.
With a trip to struggling Peterborough United to come next week, Parker may sense an opportunity to build as much early season momentum as possible in the club’s promotion bid.
However, Bournemouth have not won any of their last four league encounters with Luton since they met in League One in 2008.
The current Hatters side are winless in their last five matches, drawing four games in succession; they have not gone six without a win since January 2020.
