History of the Luton Town v Cardiff City fixture

Cardiff City face a trip to Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Monday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bluebirds will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 15 and win only 3 of the 27 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2006, when they fought out a thrilling high-scoring 3 - 3 draw in a Championship match.
