A Cruel Late Goal Deprives Luton Of A Point Away To Cardiff City

I was tempted to write that one point from a possible return of six, from Luton’s first two games, wasn’t the ideal start to the season.

But then I recalled our start last season and it’s taking a similar pattern, probably because we have played, just like last season, two of the better sides in the division.

Plus, on reflection, if luck had of gone our way, we could have had maximum points, such is the fine line between success and failure.

Against Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City, it is fair to say that Luton enjoyed long periods of possession and looked the better of the two sides when it came to playing the passing game but I’d have to admit that Cardiff did create more scoring chances.

With the game balanced at 0-0 at half-time, Cardiff got the vital breakthrough early into the second forty-five minutes when a free-kick, taken by Josh Murphy, was volleyed home by Aden Flint.

But the goal didn’t faze Luton and urged on by the boss, Graeme Jones, they got a deserved equaliser, four minutes from time when Matt Pearson rose majestically to head home a corner taken by Luke Berry.

Unfortunately, any hopes of the spoils of war being shared were wrecked when in the seventh minute of injury time, Isaac Vassell got on the end of a cross from Junior Hoilett to send the home support into raptures whilst the travelling support couldn’t believe their luck.

To say the conversation on the way home was a little sparse might be an over-statement.
