2021/22 Season Review | March

The world champions arrived at Kenilworth Road and were up against it from the first minute.


After being denied the opportunity to see the Hatters against Chelsea in the cup the season prior, fans more than made themselves heard as Reece Burke headed his side ahead in the second minute.

Goalkeeper Jed Steer was forced off with a bad Achilles injury and replaced by Harry Isted who made only his third Luton appearance – the other two coming in the Checkatrade Trophy.

After Saul equalised, Chelsea fan Harry Cornick regained the lead before the quality of Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku helped the Blues prevail on a night where Town held their own against one of the world’s best.

There was disappointment on the road against Middlesbrough, before Adebayo fired the Hatters to victory against Coventry in the following match on the day Harry Cornick made his 200th Luton appearance.

A cruel defeat to QPR before two excellent wins against Preston and Hull, the latter of which propelled Jones’ side into third position and will be remembered for a stunning James Bree free-kick off the underside of the crossbar.
