Luton Town endured a 2-0 defeat to Derby County as the Hatters were left to count the cost of defensive errors.

An early own goal by Matty Pearson after an error by Simon Sluga put the home side ahead. Derby’s second would then see a cross/shot from Tom Lawrence drift over Sluga for their second.

The result means Luton go into the international break with 4 points in 3 games, after beating Blackburn and drawing with Millwall in the last week. The side are 18th in the Championship after 11 matches.

A quiet start ultimately saw the home side gifted an opener, as Pearson’s backpass to Sluga evaded the control of the Luton goalkeeper and trickled in.

Luton’s best chance for an equaliser came for James Collins, as the striker fired James Bree’s cross over from close range.

The visitors had a few moments of pressure after half-time in a low action contest, with the best chance fired wide by Ryan Tunnicliffe.

Derby began to come back, and moments after Lawrence fired wide, the Welshman scored in fortunate style when his cross drifted into the goal.
