Life in League One is, as you might say, proving to be difficult for Luton Town at the moment.
Three fixtures into the new season and the Hatters have yet to register a win and have accumulated just one point from the nine available.
Yesterday, away to Peterborough United, the Hatters were beaten 3-1 with the damage being inflicted in the first half when Peterborough netted three times.
The opening goal came from the penalty spot with Jason Cummings netting after Marek Stech had tripped the same player.
With just nineteen minutes gone, the Hatters found themselves two goals down when Siriki Dembele produced a fine finish to beat Stech in the Luton goal.
As half-time approached the Hatters fell 3-0 down when Cummings scored his second goal of the game when he coolly finished after good work by Dembele.
Luton could have reduced the arrears before half-time when the referee awarded the Hatters a penalty after Lee was fouled in the box but then, strangely, changed his mind after consulting with his assistant.
The Hatters did get a consolation goal late in the second half when Jack Stacey was on hand to finish a fine cross from Andrew Shinnie, but, on the evidence of the first three games, life in League One isn’t going to be as easy as we first thought.
