For the second consecutive game, both on the road, the Hatters have had to rely on a dramatic finish to take a share of the points.

On Saturday, it took a stoppage time goal, from Luke Berry, to secure a point at Ashton Gate and, last night, it took an injury time goal from Danny Hylton to secure a point.

However, it should be said that it was a game in which Luton should have taken all three points as they dominated much of the action.

After the game, and as reported by The BBC, Nathan Jones was a little bemused by the late equaliser and bemoaning the fact it should have been all three points with the gaffer remarking:

“It’s bittersweet really, because you couldn’t have gone in and hammered them because they’ve been excellent right up until finishing. We’ve been absolutely superb tonight.

“We give one silly free kick away and they punished us, because they can do that because they score 65% of their goals from set plays. We know that, we defended those all night.

“It should have been three or four at half-time. We should have been out of sight and I don’t mean to be disrespectful, because I’m not. Bristol City are a good side, the manager is excellent. But tonight, we should have been out of sight.

“They’ve scored with their only chance really and then I’m just so pleased that we’ve shown character to come back and to score late.”

Indeed, we should have but, in this game, when you are struggling to pick up points that is how it goes.

Like I may have said previously, Luton will, on occasions, play far worse than this and pick up all three points.

What is essential now is that we dust ourselves down and prepare for the visit of Swansea City, this Saturday, a game that could be a tough one.

  • Morning mh, exactly my thoughts from a week or 2 back. It doesn’t matter in this league if you have play ugly or not its getting points on the board. And we weren’t that bad just unlucky. But the village idiot who obviously has no knowledge of football can’t see that an is very tiresome with his snide comments

    • My fears are that we are stuck in a position where, despite what we do, we are not picking up enough points, 3 from 12 is relegation form and with tough games against Swansea and Bournemouth coming hard, i reckon hard times are ahead

      • We will disagree on this one. For me with all our injury problems we have competed in every game bar one Birmingham. Never been out of games an with a little luck could be 6 points better off. When nj has all pl ayers back an finds his best 11 I think we will go on a run. So I’m not disheartened yet I think the team has shown fortitude in dire straits an will come through it

  • we need just a little bit of luck. the defence are gelling well,even with continual changes.bell and osho are good in this team,but lansbury needs more help in midfield.he passes the ball with great accuracy,pleasure to see.i don’t mind how we get points,but we should have had a big score last night. can’t wait to see when the goals start going in. has nj got any nails left,or is he biting flesh????? COYH.
