The Hatters are now winless from their last three Championship matches, which has seen them slip down to 12th in the table and six points behind the playoffs.
Nathan Jones’s men have also struggled for goals on home soil against Saturday’s opponents Cardiff, failing to find the net in each of their last three meetings with the Bluebirds at Kenilworth Road, including last season’s 2-0 defeat in February.
After losing 1-0 to Stoke City in their most recent home league match, Luton will be hoping to avoid consecutive defeats on their own turf for the first time since re-joining the Championship in 2019-20.
Jones will be hoping that his side can return to winning ways this weekend before they face challenging fixtures against Blackpool and Fulham – two teams currently above them in the table – at the beginning of next month.
Cardiff were unable to record their third successive league win on Wednesday night as they suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss at home to relegation rivals Hull City.
A 15th-minute strike from Keane Lewis-Potter – the visitors’ only shot on target – was enough to edge out the Bluebirds, who were condemned to their 11th league defeat of the campaign.

Cardiff will be confident of returning to winning ways on Saturday, as they have an impressive record against Luton in recent years. The Bluebirds have won each of their last four league meetings against the Hatters, including both encounters last season by an aggregate score of 6-0.
The Welsh outfit have also kept a clean sheet in their last three away league games against Luton – a Chris Barker own goal in a 3-3 draw back in February 2006 was the last time that the Hatters scored against them at Kenilworth Road
