Harry Cornick scored a brace as Luton Town secured one of the comfortable football results of the weekend in the Championship. They dominated the game without giving the hosts much chance of a comeback. Milwall on the other hand put on a disappointing performance, ending their seven-match unbeaten run. They were given a glimmer of hope at the end but Luton’s goalkeeper saved a penalty in the death. Luton Town moved into the top half of the table after securing their fourth league win of the season.
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “It was disappointing because to go into the game off the back of a seven-game unbeaten run, to have won two games in a row and be three points off the play-offs… To be really quite excited about putting a performance in front of our fans at home that showed we’re desperate to get where we want to be. I’m disappointed today – I just think we didn’t look like we quite had that extra bit of drive, that extra bit of competitive nature about us.”
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “[Cornick] has probably been labeled as not being able to finish in times past. He’s a wonderful player for us – last year he had chances and scored one goal, but he had chance after chance last year. He’s just such a dangerous player and we’re delighted with him because we’ve had him for three or four years now – we signed him in League Two.”
