Kal Naismith scored with the last kick of the game to help Luton Town produce one of the upset football scores of the weekend in the Championship. The hosts went ahead thanks to a Lloyd Kelly own goal before doubling their lead through Alan Campbell. Emiliano Marcondes pulled a goal back after the break before Morgan Rogers equalized in the 78th minute. Just when it looked like both sides would share the points, Naismith scored a brilliant goal from outside the box.
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “With the greatest respect, these will go up. These and Fulham, they’re the best two sides in the league, so to do what we did, I thought we were full value for our win. We weren’t categorically better than them, but I thought we were on the more aggressive side. We created more problems, especially first half and then we finished with real intent to win a football match and that’s what happened.”
Bournemouth’s Scott Parker: “We gave ourselves a mountain to climb in the first half going two goals down, one an own goal, another one from 30 yards – the boy’s hit a great strike. For bits in the first half, I liked us but then I thought we got to the final third and really just pitted out, didn’t really cause them any problems through the first phase. We got up to that part of the pitch very well but didn’t have enough about us in those moments, and then the second half, we showed unbelievable character, quality, the subs coming on made a difference and we get ourselves to 2-2.”
