Over two thousand Hatters fans made the trip to the Ricoh Arena to see if Luton could get back to winning ways, against Coventry, after the weekend loss against Accrington Stanley.

At half-time those two thousand would have been thinking that the Hatters, trailing 2-0 to a promotion chasing Coventry side, were going to suffer a second consecutive League Two defeat.

The Hatters had the worst possible start to the game when Coventry took the lead with just three minutes gone, courtesy of a goal from Peter Vicenti after Ryan Haynes has produced a piece of skill that had bamboozled two Luton defenders which resulted in a shot from Tom Bayliss that Marek Stech could only parry.

On the stroke of half-time, Coventry City doubled their lead when Marc McNulty scored from a free-kick, curling it into the bottom corner of the Luton net.

The second-half though saw the Hatters work their way back into the match. In the fifty-fifth minute Scott Cuthbert climbed higher than anybody else, at the back-post, to head a free-kick, taken by Alan Sheehan, past Lee Burge in the Coventry goal.

Strangely enough, the goal didn`t see the Hatters kick-on, instead the game went into some sort of lull, but, just as it looked like the Hatters were to leave the Ricoh Stadium empty-handed, Luton sprung into life.

James Collins, back in the starting eleven after serving a one-game suspension, saw a goal disallowed for an infringement before Danny Hylton saw Burge make an impressive stop to deny the Hatters an equaliser.

But, two minutes from time, the Hatters were level when Collins was on hand forcefully heading home a cross from Luke Gambin to give the Hatters a share of the spoils.

The result leaves Luton sitting in second place in the League Two table, a point adrift of Accrington Stanley but having played a game more.

It seems a long while ago when the Hatters lead the table by nine-points, but they`re still in the promotion race!
