Friday night football returns to Kenilworth Road as the Hatters host Sheffield United under the lights.

Postivity will be flowing throughout Nathan Jones' side after picking up their first win of the campaign against Swansea City last weekend, with hopes of following it up against the Blades.

Sheffield United are the current league leaders after five matches with three wins, a draw and one loss.

The Blades shared play-off disappointment with Luton last season after going out in the semi-final but are keen to make a return to the Premier League this time around.

Iliman N'Diaye (pictured above) is Sheffield United's leading scorer this season with three goals in his first five matches. He came off the bench at the weekend against Blackburn Rovers and scored a brace including a brilliant solo effort. 


Last time we met:

The Hatters were beaten for the first time in five matches as two quickfire Sheffield United goals gave the Blades all three points back in January.

The reverse at Kenilworth Road earlier in the season ended in a goalless draw with the Town winless against Sheffield United since January 1996.
