Hatters fall to narrow defeat at Molineux

Despite a late rally the Town’s hopes of lifting themselves out of the relegation zone were ended as Wolves secured a narrow victory at Molineux.


Having looked the more likely to open the scoring after a bright first half-hour, the Hatters fell behind six minutes before the interval when Hee Chan Hwang’s low finish beat Thomas Kaminski 18 seconds after Carlton Morris went close at the other end.

And Wolves took just four minutes after half-time to double their lead when Toti Gomes nodded past Kaminski from close range.

Wolves were denied a third by a combination of poor finishing and saves from Kaminski before Town striker Elijah Adebayo was introduced to make his first appearance since February with 12 minutes left.

Within minutes of his introduction the Hatters found a way back into the game when captain Morris volleyed home with ten minutes remaining as the Town struck another late goal.

Substitutes Cauley Woodrow and Luke Berry both came close to rescuing a last-gasp point but Wolves held on.

The result leaves the Town in the relegation zone, one point from safety with nearest rivals Nottingham Forest in action on Sunday.

This group are made of strong stuff - and they'll be back for when Everton visit the Kenny under the lights next Friday.

See you then.
