The Hatters face Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon looking to rectify last weekend's heavy defeat.

Loss against Birmingham City was Town's second of the league campaign and as they head into the international break, concentration turns to putting that performance right against Slavisa Jokanovic's men.

Relegated from the Premier League last season, Sheffield United have a single point to their name in the Sky Bet Championship and will hope to add to that on Saturday, prior to the international break.

 

Last time we met:

You have to look back through the archives to discover when these two sides last met, with Saturday’s match set to be the first time the two clash in 15 years.

Ahmet Brkovic's second half goal was cancelled out by a 90th minute strike from Michael Tonge, to seal a point for the already-promtoed Blades.
