2021/22 Season Review | April

The Sky cameras were in position at Kenilworth Road for the first of four Luton matches they would cover during the month of April, starting with an entertaining game against Millwall.


February addition Robert Snodgrass would make a vital contribution off the bench to assist the late equaliser in a 2-2 draw, before Peterborough inflicted a late leveler of their own a matter of days later in front of 3,700 travelling Hatters.

Play-off ambitions were bruised away at Huddersfield as the prospect of needing a result against a Nottingham Forest side who were unbeaten in the league since January seemed tricky to say the least.

Adebayo was denied from the penalty spot against the Terriers, so Kal Naismith assumed responsibility after Jack Colback handled in the area and calmly rolled the ball home to give Town a priceless lead.

It was a feisty encounter that later saw Sonny Bradley dismissed for a second bookable offence, but Town managed to hold on to a valuable three points against their top six rivals.

The Easter period continued to prove fruitful following a 1-0 away win against Cardiff but was dampened by the loss of goalkeeper James Shea for the remainder of the season, plus injuries to James Bree and Fred Onyedinma.

A depleted side then held their own against a challenging Blackpool team and in fifth place, six points ahead of the chasing pack, were set-up for the two remaining matches in May.
