Luton Town are aiming for their third league win in a row

Sheffield United host Luton Town at Bramall Lane on Saturday in the EFL Championship, looking to end their three-game winless run in all competitions.

The Blades were beaten 3-0 by Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup in their first game of the year. This was followed by a league defeat and a draw to Derby County and Preston North End respectively.

They remain in 12th position in the league standings with 33 points, just two points behind and one position below Luton, who're unbeaten in four league matches.

After defeating Bournemouth and Reading, the Hatters are looking for their third league win in a row.
