After beginning the New Year with successive defeats to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup and then to Derby County in the league, Sheffield United threw a two-goal lead away against 10-man Preston North End to draw 2-2 on Tuesday.
Jayden Bogle opened the scoring for the visitors before Andrew Hughes was sent off for his challenge on Rhian Brewster inside the penalty box as the last man, which resulted in Billy Sharp converting from 12 yards.
However, Preston came out fighting in the second half and they managed to rescue a draw thanks to strikes from Alan Browne and Emil Riis Jakobsen, with the latter equalising in the 89th minute.
Paul Heckingbottom‘s side remain just inside the top half of the table on goal difference – two points and one place behind Saturday’s opponents Luton – but they are now 11 points adrift of the playoffs, albeit with up to three games in hand on some of the teams above them.
Sheffield United are unbeaten in each of their last four meetings with Luton, including their last two home matches, winning by an aggregate score of 5-0.
The Blades, however, were unable to breach Luton’s backline in the reverse fixture earlier this season, which finished goalless, so Heckingbottom will be hoping that his team can improve in the final third this weekend.
Heckingbottom has revealed that Enda Stevens will be assessed ahead of kickoff to see if he can feature this weekend, though Morgan Gibbs-White remains sidelined with a knee injury.
After a spell out with COVID-19, Oli McBurnie has since returned to training but is doubtful due to fitness concerns, while Lys Mousset is also struggling with a lack of fitness.
Goalkeeper Robin Olsen has had his loan spell with the Blades cut short by Roma and has joined Aston Villa, so Wes Foderingham is set to keep his place between the sticks, while Sander Berge and David McGoldrick could return to the first XI at the expense of Iliman Ndiaye and Rhian Brewster.
As for Luton, Harry Cornick remains out due to injury and Admiral Muskwe is still away on international duty with Zimbabwe at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Goalkeeper James Shea, who has started each of the last four league matches, is expected to keep his place ahead of Simon Sluga, while either Fred Onyedinma or Carlos Mendes Gomes could replace Cameron Jerome in attack.
