Swansea and Luton Town provided one of the high-scoring football results of the weekend in the Championship. The visitors produced a stunning comeback thanks to striker Joel Piroe who equalized in stoppage time. Luke Berry opened the scoring with a brilliant scissor-kick volley. Adebayo then scored their second from the penalty spot before he scored his second when he got onto the end of a brilliant cross from James Bree.
Russell Martin made a triple substitution at half-time and was rewarded for the changes when Paterson’s long-range effort was deflected into the goal. With five minutes to go, Swansea scored another deflected goal when Ntcham’s long-range effort deflected of Pelly-Ruddock. Top scorer Piroe then broke Luton’s heart when he finished from close range to cap a superb game.
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “We were frustrated we were only three up at halftime, we should have been out of sight. Elijah’s gone through at three-nil, Harry Cornick hits the post when clean in and the game should have been put to bed.”
Swansea’s Russell Martin: “The first half was nowhere near where we want to be, nowhere near where we have been in the last two games. I’m really disappointed with how it went and the beauty of the process is we’ll learn from it, it can’t happen again, it won’t happen again.” he added. “We spoke about Luton’s threat, the aggression they come out with, being able to cope with that, we didn’t cope with it at all. It is what it is, but the second half, incredible. I’m so grateful to the guys, so proud of them.”
