Junior Report | Luton Town 2-2 Coventry City

16 September 2022

A big game under the lights for the Hatters who hosted Coventry City in another massive match at Kenilworth Road.

Luton were looking to right the wrongs from the home defeat against Wigan Athletic. 

The game got off to an electric start as Coventry really should have gone ahead. The ball was played over the top to Viktor Gyokeres who was clean through but missed the target. This was a wakeup call for Luton. 

Luton took this well as the Hatters took the lead a few minutes later. The ball found its way to Harry Cornick on the right and he crossed it in towards the penalty spot. Fankaty Dabo was unable to clear and Carlton Morris volleyed the ball into the back of the net to give the home side a much-needed lead. 

This was short lived as Coventry responded with a goal. The ball was played through to Viktor Gyokeres and he ran through and placed it into the bottom corner this time to level things up.

Again, this didn’t last long. Luton re-took the lead after Harry Cornick forced a mistake out of the Coventry defender and threaded the ball to Carlton Morris who slotted past the goalkeeper to put Luton back ahead. 

It has been a great start to life at Luton for Carlton Morris who has scored five goals for the Hatters since joining in the summer. The half time score was 2-1 to the home side. 

The second half was more of the same. Nathan Jones’ side could have made it 3-1 after a great free kick was crossed in and Elijah Adebayo got on the end of it but his shot went over the bar. 

Coventry equalised for a second time after this. Gustavo Hamer received the ball on the edge of the box and unleashed a perfect shot into the top right corner of the goal to make the score 2-2. Both teams pushed for a winner but it never quite happened and the game finished 2-2. 

Luton had to settle for a point against Coventry but will be hoping for more than one point against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.
