Luton Town

The Valley

27 November 3.00pm

Attendance: 8682

Referee:


Richard Money will be delighted with his team's showing at The Valley where they matched their higher status opponents. Luton were efficient and able, deserving the draw they got. Another game is the last thing either manager wanted in the busy run up to Christmas but that is how things are in modern day footbal.

The Hatters started brightly but found themselves behind after just six minutes. Kyel Reid delivered the perfect cross for Joe Anyinsah to nod home at the near post, Anyinsah didn't even have to jump.

Paul Benson picked up an unusual early booking when chasing a ball that went out for a goalkick. Benson's nudge on his opponent pushed the defender into the advertising hoardings which made the incident appear worse than it was.

Matthew Barnes-Homer gave the hosts a scare after a quarter of an hour when his 25 yard drive beat Elliot and struck the post. On the half hour mark Luton restored parity. The grounded Francis clipped Morgan-Smith and the referee pointed to the spot. Elliot dived to his right to save Andy Drury's kick but the talented midfielder followed up to head home.

The near 3000 visiting fans had their joy stifled just four minutes later when Scott Wagstaff's blocked shot looped up for Johnnie Jackson to head home his eigth goal of the campaign. Shortly after the game should have been sewn up. Reid burst through the middle with Jackson clear on his left. Reid opted for the spectacular to the obvious frustration of Jackson.

The Addicks started brightly after the break and Benson went close from a corner and a Francis cross nearly deceived Mark Tyler in the Hatters goal.

Both defences looked more secure in the second period but the Addicks were undone seven minutes from time. Luton substitute Walker rolled the ball into Andy Drury's path for the midfielder to fire home a sensational goal from outside the area.

So both team's go into this evening's draw. The number to listen out for is 57. The replay will be at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday 7 December with a 7.45pm kick-off. Tickets will be £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and will be available from Tuesday.
