Manager Rob Edwards said he saw ‘a lot of good things’ as the Hatters claimed a point on their travels against Coventry City.

Tom Lockyer had given Luton a lead inside the first minute but Matty Godden responded on the stoke of half-time from the penalty spot. Despite chances for both sides in the second period, and Coventry going down to ten-men, neither team could find a winner as the Hatters remain fourth in the table.

“It is a very difficult place to come as we all know,” he admitted post-match. “They’re a good team with very good individual players and they’re very well coached as well. They have a really clear identity, clear way of playing and they’ve been doing that for a number of years and been successful with it as well. I’m not disappointed at all but based on our big chances today, maybe we could have deserved it.

“He's getting the chances which is great. Fantastic save and block so as long as we’re working the keeper and they’re on target then great. In the first half I thought we played the best we have done since we’ve been here in the first half.

“I thought we looked a real threat, we got in behind well, Amari’i and Alfie were really dangerous and when we got into those areas, we just needed that final bit. I know we’ve talked about that before but what was really pleasing today was the build-up and structure of the team to create those chances. I thought the wide players were really threatening.

“I saw lots of good things and I think that is why the 3,000 or so Luton fans were happy at the end, Edwards continued. “They could see the team was committed, had a right good go, recognised that Coventry are a good team as well and coming away from home in the Championship, a point is good.”
