After coming back, in stoppage time, to grab a share of the spoils in their two previous Championship fixtures, Luton were the victims of a smash and grab injury time raid against Swansea City.
Things could not have gone better, for the Hatters, in the opening 45 minutes.
With just seven minutes gone, Luke Berry was on hand to score with a fine shot, to give Luton a 1-0 lead.
Matters improved in the fifteenth minute when Elijah Adebayo scored from the penalty spot.
Remarkably, in the twenty-third minute, things got even better for the Hatters when Adebayo netted again to make it 3-0.
It seemed a case of just how many goals Luton might score against a Swansea City side that looked to be very poor.
But it proved to be a game of two halves.
Swansea made three substitutions at half-time and were by far the better side in the second half.
The arrears were reduced in the sixty-third minute when Jamie Paterson scored to make it 3-1 and the visitors were well and truly back in the game in the eighty-sixth minute when Olivier Ntcham made it 3-2.
As the game entered stoppage time, the Welsh side grabbed a dramatic equaliser when Joel Piroe made it 3-3.
Next up for the Hatters is a difficult looking trip to Bournemouth next weekend.
