Sonny Bradley scored the equalizer to help Luton Town produce one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Daniel Sinani opened the scoring in the 12th minute before Bradley equalized in the 30th minute. Both teams could have been awarded penalties in the first half with both sides dominating the game at different times.
Luton manager Nathan Jones: “It’s a tight game. The margins are really tight between the sides. First half we were outstanding, we should have had a penalty and a possible red card because [Jerome] has been denied a goal-scoring opportunity. I know they had half of one too, but obviously, I see it through orange eyes. Ours was stonewall. He’s taken him out. But it’s one of those things and they’ll be saying the same. They’re a good side and it will be difficult, but it’s all to play for. We have to go to Huddersfield and win the game, but we probably would have taken that at the start of the season.”
Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan: “It was very clear to me Toffolo was fouled in the box. But the referee didn’t think so and we need to respect the decision he made for both teams. The result was fair for me today because Luton was a little bit better than us in the first half and we were better in the second half. We scored but then we didn’t have enough of the ball to develop our style as we did in the second half. But second half we were excellent and we played in the offensive half as we wanted. We controlled it well, but unfortunately, we couldn’t defend the lead we had. It will be another very demanding game at home, but we want to keep going in the playoffs.”
