For Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom, Jack O’Connell and Jayden Bogle won’t be able to play due to knee surgeries and problems, respectively.

There is only one health worry for Rob Edwards, the manager of Luton Town, in a group of players who are otherwise at full strength. James Shea (Knee Surgery) will not participate in this contest.

We believe it will be challenging for Luton Town to break down this Sheffield United squad, who we believe should score at least once to take the lead.
