Kai Naismith, the Luton Town defender, says his side will be itching to put things right against Sheffield United this weekend after they were hammered 5-0 by Birmingham City last Saturday.

Scott Hogan, the former Blades loanee, was on target twice as the Blues hammered the Hatters, whose manager Nathan Jones admitted he was “a little bit embarrassed” by his side’s performance on their own turf.

Next up for Jones’ side is another home clash with the Blades, who have struggled to adapt to life back in the Championship after relegation last season and have just one point to their name from their opening four games.

“That’s the good thing about football,” Naismith said. “It takes you to some bad lows, but you’ve always got next to try and put it right.

“If you look at the grand scheme of things, we’ve had four games with two wins and two losses. A bit inconsistent. But if we go and put it right against Sheff U, we go into the international break feeling good.

“But we do have a lot of stuff to put right.”

For United, who return to action tomorrow night against Derby in the Carabao Cup, Saturday’s game will be a first meeting with Luton since their 2005/06 promotion season. The sides drew 1-1 at Kenilworth Road, after United had run out 4-0 winners in the earlier game at Bramall Lane.

Slavisa Jokanović’s Blades will have a point to prove themselves, after losing at home to Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town in injury time on Saturday.
