A pair of late goals liven up a match that many saw as typical end-of-season fare.

Any chances of Luton, if they could end the 2015 / 2016 season with a great run, nicking that final League Two promotion play-off place disappeared after a lacklustre performance against Newport County, on Saturday.

Whilst the Hatters have shown some fine winning form on the road, performances at Kenilworth Road have left a lot to be desired and, indeed, it is our home form that has seen us fail to capitalize on those hopes of getting into League One.

Although, since arriving from Brighton and Hove Albion, Nathan Jones has made progress, the boss will realise that there is still a lot of hard work to be done this summer If the Hatters, next season, are to make a genuine and sustained promotion challenge.

Against Newport, Luton`s three-match winning run came to an end late in a game that didn`t have the faithful up on their feet too often.

Joe Pigott, on a run of scoring whereby he`d scored three goals in two games, had a miserable day in front of goal, missing several chances that he should have stuck away.

However, Luton did take the lead late on when Jack Marriott finally put the Hatters ahead after several previous chances had been squandered, with Marriott heading home a cross from Olly Lee.

But, instead of hanging on for that crucial win, Luton were to concede a late equalizer when Souleymane Coulibay, rose the highest to head in a cross from Alex Rodman.

A season littered with disappointment can`t come to an end quick enough now.
