For the second game on the trot, the Hatters were involved in the most dramatic of finishes.

On Saturday it was a disappointed Hatters faithful that filed out of Kenilworth Road after seeing Luton Town concede a 95th minute equaliser, against Charlton Athletic.

Last night, at the Kassam Stadium, the 1200 travelling fans left the Kassam Stadium with broad smiles on their faces after their side came from a goal behind to not only equalise but then snatch a dramatic 98th minute equaliser.

How things can change so quickly in this wonderful sport of ours.

The Hatters had fallen behind early in the second half, courtesy of a strike from Ricky Holmes who not only stunned the Hatters support with a mazy run but also produced a marvellous shot to complete his contribution.

But, the Hatters battled on and equalised in the 56th minute when Mpanzu produced some good work and saw his cross find Cornick who saw his effort strike the bar, thankfully Collins was on hand to score from the rebound

With seventy-three minutes played, our hosts were reduced to ten men when their captain, Shandon Baptiste received his marching orders after a second late tackle was objected to by the referee.

The extra man gave the Hatters the impetus to go for the winner and it almost came in the early moments of stoppage time but an effort from Potts was ruled out for a push.

However, Potts was not to be denied and in the 8th minute of stoppage time Potts was on hand to send the Hatters supporters delirious when he finished off a fine cross from Sheehan.
