Luton Town Preview – Can the Hatters restore some pride?

Nathan Jones’ Luton Town started their season in fine style, beating Peterborough United 3-0 at home. After a narrow 3-2 loss at West Bromwich Albion in game two, the Hatters returned to winning ways with an impressive 1-0 away win at Barnsley.

However, Luton were brought back down to earth with an almighty bang last weekend. Town, usually so tough to beat at home, were hammered 5-0 by Lee Bowyer’s Birmingham.

Our betting prediction:
Draw at half time

(odds taken 1220 GMT, Friday 27 August)

Jones’ troops were uncharacteristically poor in last weekend’s heavy home loss. Luton will be eager to restore some pride in front of their home supporters and pick up a positive result from this one. The Luton win is priced at 15/8, while the draw is currently available at 11/5.

Sheffield United Preview – Will the Blades pick up their first win?

Slavisa Jokanovic has won promotion to the Premier League with Watford and Fulham and was brought to Bramall Lane to do the same for Sheffield United. However, they have made a woeful start, taking a single point from four league games.

The Blades kicked off their season with a 1-0 home loss to Birmingham on the opening weekend. They then drew 0-0 at Swansea City on matchday two. United were poor at West Brom in game three, crashing to a 4-0 defeat. Jokanovic’s side then conceded in injury time to lose 2-1 at home to Huddersfield Town last weekend.
