Elijah Adebayo scored his 12th goal of the season to help Luton Town produce one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. Tom Lockyer opened the scoring for the hosts in the 42nd minute before Andreas Weimann equalized in the 56th minute. Luton piled on the pressure after the equalizer and was rewarded when Adebayo scored the winner in the 68th minute.
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “Performance-wise we’re a mile off where we want to be, but we’ve had so many games and we haven’t played well but we’ve managed to grind out a result. We know we can play better, we know we will play better. We’ve had to make six changes tonight, most of them enforced, and then we’ve put four or five of them in that haven’t played football in six, seven weeks.”
Bristol City’s Nigel Pearson: “That was a missed opportunity for us. It’s happened too often this season and it remains a big frustration for us. It’s happening because we can’t defend set-pieces. We’re relying too heavily on one, two or three players winning everything – if they can’t then we don’t have a collective responsibility. We created the best chances in the game. I can’t remember too many attempts on goal or saves that our keeper had to make. We’ve not shown ways of being able to get results in tight games when actually the least we should have got tonight was a point. Luton defended quite well and fill the middle of the pitch.”
