Prediction: Luton Town vs Sheffield United – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Two championship teams struggling to reach strong form earlier this season will hit the horns on Saturday if City of Luton host Sheffield United.

This is the first meeting in a competition between the Hatters and the Blades since April 2006, when they drew 1-1 on Kenilworth Road.


Prediction for this match

Luton head coach Nathan Jones was “embarrassed” by his side’s disappointing performance when they were beaten 5-0 at home to Birmingham City last weekend.

Thanks to goals from 27 minutes, the hatters were two goals behind Marc Roberts and Scott Hogan. The latter scored his second goal just minutes after half-time before Gary Gardner and Chuks Aneke added a fourth and a fifth to sentence the hosts to their biggest league loss since 2006/07.

Luton’s hugely inconsistent start to the new championship campaign results in them sitting in 11th place after winning and losing two of their first four games.

Contrasting performances will be a problem for Jones, albeit at such an early stage in the season, and results similar to those against West Bromwich Albion and Birmingham cannot continue as they push for a top-half finish or even the playoffs .

Defensive weaknesses have been an important factor in the two previous league defeats this season, with only Reading (nine) conceding more championship goals than the Hatters (eight). Fortunately, on Saturday they will face a team from Sheffield United that have scored the fewest goals in the division and only scored once in their first four games.

This one goal that was scored by the club legend Billy SharpHe had lost his 2-1 home defeat to Huddersfield Town last weekend, which is leaving him Slavisa Jokanovic‘s men as one of only four teams that have yet to win in the second division this season.

Sharp thought he canceled Josh Koroma‘s earlier attempt to snap a tie in the 92nd minute but the Terriers immediately went up on the other end with Levi Colwill the winning goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

The Blades should be one of a number of strong clubs battling for promotion, but with just one point from four games – their worst start to a championship season since 1995/96 – they’re 23rd on the table, nine points behind relegated colleagues Fulham and West Brom at the top.

Jokanovic, who has already secured promotion to the championship twice with Fulham and Watford, has a difficult task to change the club’s fate but the performance against Derby County in Tuesday’s 2-1 League Cup win is encouraging for the Serbs have to go into Saturday’s game with Luton.

The win for Sheffield United would be their first on Kenilworth Road since December 1994, when they won 6-3 under the former boss Dave Bassett.

Probability: Luton Town 2-2 Sheffield United

Sheffield United have struggled to find the net so far this season but they may have more joy in front of goal against a tired Luton defense on Saturday.
