Peterborough scored a late equalizer to produce one of the close football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. Although the point does not help that much it was a just return for their performance. Danny Hylton opened the scoring for the visitors in the 49th minute before Jonson Clarke-Harris scored the equalizer in the 87th minute. The draw meant that Luton Town remain fourth on the table.
Luton’s Nathan Jones: “We were 1-0 upon 85 minutes, so we’ve just got to see the game out, really, and we didn’t do that. We had a warning just before, with a delivery, and they’ve had a chance back stick and they’ve scored, and to be fair they could have won it. We probably should have lost the game, we haven’t been anywhere near our best tonight, but credit Peterborough: they’re grafting, they needed a win, they went for it, they were really positive. They had a bad result at the weekend [against Middlesbrough], so they’ve come out fighting. Give them credit, but we weren’t at the levels we were.”
Peterborough’s Grant McCann: “I thought, for 85 minutes of the game, we were the better team. There was a five-minute spell in the second half when they got on top of us and scored in that spell, and that’s the Championship for you. Teams score in their spells and that’s what happened in that five-minute spell, but I thought we rallied, and we got better. We kept working, we had to deal with [Elijah] Adebayo, and the long ball into him, and that’s the way they play and we did that for most of the game. The last 20 minutes I thought we were excellent and there was only going to be one team that was going to win it.”
