A late goal from James Collins saw Luton Town come from 2-0 down to salvage a draw with Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena.

An early goal from Peter Vincenti and a strike from Marc McNulty had put the home side two goals ahead at the break. But Scott Cuthbert bought a goal back for Nathan Jones’ side before Collins, who earlier had a goal disallowed, dispatched a late strike to give Luton a share of the points.

Coventry took the lead early on, when a fine piece of skill from Ryan Haynes initially cued up Tom Bayliss for a blocked effort, before Vincenti made the most of the rebound.

Luton had a few chances to respond, but as the half progressed, Coventry asserted themselves once more and picked up a second in the final moments of the first half. McNulty scored the strike with a free-kick, with his effort curling into the bottom corner.

The visitors reduced the deficit back to one within ten minutes of half-time, when Cuthbert flicked in a free-kick.

Luton pressed for a leveller, and moments after Collins had a goal disallowed and Lee Burge kept out a further effort, they levelled when Collins headed in a cross.

While Luton avoided back-to-back defeats, the Bedfordshire side are now on a run of 2 wins from 8 and are one point behind league leaders Accrington Stanley, who have played a game more. Luton will look to return to winning ways on Saturday, when they travel to Newport County.
