James Shea produced a spectacular performance in the Luton goal to help produce one of the comfortable football results of the weekend in the Championship. He pulled off a string of brilliant saves as the visitors spent most of the game in their own half. Sonny Bradley gave the visitors the lead against the run of play to go into half-time. Elijah Adebayo doubled their advantage ten minutes into the second half before Jordan Clark sealed the three points in stoppage time.
Blackpool’s Neil Critchley: “The game is decided in both penalty areas and we have not done enough in either box. Their keeper has pulled off some really good saves and we have hit the post, which was a little bit of misfortune because it ricochets off the bloke’s heel and rolls against the post. If that goes in, maybe it is a different game. The disappointment was the goals we conceded and for some really good approach play and getting into the final third in good areas, we failed. The second goal was the real one.”
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “I am really proud of James Shea. With the greatest respect, I call him a backup goalkeeper but we brought him in to be a back-up in League Two yet he played games and he has been promoted. He is always ready and he trains so, so well. When you call upon him, he never lets you down. We were outstanding. We defended the box extremely well, apart from a few shots or scrambles in the first half. I thought we were really comfortable.”
