Luton Town played out a 0-0 draw against Sheffield United at Kenilworth Road in their last game before the international break.

A game with few shots on target would end in stalemate between Nathan Jones’ side and the team relegated from last season’s Premier League.

The Hatters will enter the international pause occupying 12th place in the Championship table, having picked up 7 points from their opening 5 games.

Luton’s previous home game had seen the team thumped 5-0 by Birmingham City, and they began this game on the back foot, with George Baldock heading wide inside the opening minute before Oli McBurnie saw a 20 yard hit just fly wide.

As the first half progressed, Luton began to show more going forward. Elijah Adebayo had earlier needed injury treatment but the striker began to cause the Blades problems, with one cross just going in front of everyone before a header by the ex-Walsall forward just went wide.

A long throw by Harry Cornick saw Wes Foderingham called up to deny McBurnie before he nearly scored an own goal.

In the second half, Luton began brightly, with Allan Campbell firing wide from a cross before Fred Onyedinma had a goal disallowed for offside.

Perhaps the best chance of the game then fell Luton’s way when Adebayo dispossessed Sheffield United keeper Foderingham in the box and played it back for Cornick, who crashed a strike off the bar.

After this burst, however, the game lacked some of the same energy and fluency. Luton would have chances, with Onyedinma and James Bree hit some efforts wide, but the game would end goalless.
