The Hatters suffered their first defeat of the League Two season, yesterday, beaten by a stoppage time winner at Barnet.

After sticking eight goals past Yeovil Town in the opening game of the season, the Hatters have now failed to score in their last two fixtures, Ipswich in the cup and at the Hive yesterday, something that may concern Nathan Jones.

Luton had the better of the first-half with Barnet struggling to get into any rhythm, partly due to the fact our hosts had to make two changes, courtesy of injuries to Elliott Johnson and Harry Taylor.

The unfortunate Taylor had to be taken off the field of play with blood pouring from a head wound that subsequently saw the player taken to hospital.

Luton could have taken the lead early in the first-half but when Alan Sheehan met a cross from Dan Potts with his head, the Barnet keeper, Jamie Stephens, somehow tipped the header on to the crossbar.

Our hosts started the second half the better of the two teams and the Hatters keeper, Marek Stech was forced into making several decent saves.

But, just as it looked as if the game would end 0-0 Jack Taylor popped up, in the fourth minute of stoppage time, with his first professional goal, a curling effort from 25-yards-out that beat Stech.

Luton mounted a frantic offensive in what little time was left but couldn`t get back on level terms.
