Late drama as Luton share points at Stevenage

Luton Town played out a 1-1 draw with local neighbours Stevenage, in a game that saw both goals scored in the final 5 minutes.

A tight game had looked set to end all square, but the balance seemed to have tilted Luton’s way when James Collins scored from the penalty spot.

The Hatters won the penalty after one-time Luton captain Ronnie Henry fouled Collins, and it looked like this was the cue for Nathan Jones’ side to take the points.

But Luton were pegged back within 2 minutes, as Danny Newton bundled the ball in at a corner via the underside of the crossbar.

Both sides missed further chances, but although Stevenage had a goal disallowed, there was to be no game winning strike and the two sides had to be content with a point.

With Accrington Stanley winning at Coventry, the result means the Hatters are now 6 points clear of the team in 2nd having played a game more, although Stanley were the only side in the top 7 to win.
