A much-anticipated U.S. jobs report will be in the spotlight on Friday.

U.S. stock futures on Friday pointed to a small gain at the open, setting the Dow industrials on track to flirt with the 22,000 mark as a new month kicks off. Traders are bracing for a much-anticipated U.S. jobs report due before the opening bell, but many others have taken the day off or will quit early as Labor Day weekend nears, so volume could be low. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures YMU7, +0.20%  rose by 31 points, or 0.1%, to 21,981.00, while S&P 500 futures ESU7, +0.14%  added 1.90 points, or 0.1%, to 2,472.00, while Nasdaq-100 futures NQU7, +0.13%  tacked on 5 points, or 0.1%, to 5,995.75.
