Yesterday`s defeat at the hands of our local neighbours Stevenage, was a bitter pill to swallow.

For the second match on the trot the Hatters have tasted defeat courtesy of a late penalty.

Last week it was a spot-kick in the fifth minute of stoppage time that cost us dearly and yesterday, against Stevenage, it was a penalty five minutes from the end of normal time that cost Luton any chance of a win.

Two defeats on the trot have all but ended any slim hopes Luton Town also had of making the promotion play-offs and now all we have to look forward to is playing out the remainder of this season and re-grouping for the 2016 / 2017 season.

The only goal of the game yesterday, down at Kenilworth Road, came when Olly Lee fouled Ben Kennedy in the area, the decision may have been a little harsh but Michael Tonge made no mistake from the spot.

Luton had chances to influence the outcome of the game, the best falling to Jack Marriott who was denied by the Stevenage keeper, Jamie Jones, when faced with a one-on-one situation.

The Hatters also rattled the cross-bar when Alan Sheehan curled an effort against it.

The win ended a six-game winless run for Stevenage and gives them real hope of escaping the drop back into non-league football, as for Luton it`s a mid-table slot that we occupy and one we`ll probably finish in.
