Luton Town remain bottom of the Championship after a 3-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest, with Graeme Jones’ side suffering a fourth straight defeat.

The Hatters had struck first against the play-off chasers, with Harry Cornick putting the away side in front.

But the home side would turn it around, with Joe Lolley putting Forest level within 15 minutes and the same player putting the home side in front during the second half.

A Lewis Grabban penalty late on confirmed victory for the home side, rubber stamping a 10th straight away defeat in the Championship for the Hatters.

Luton started fairly brightly, with Dan Potts firing an effort over the bar in the early stages.

The away side would then strike first. With 23 minutes on the clock, a passing move from Kazenga LuaLua and Potts released the full back, with Cornick meeting Potts’ cross and heading the ball into the back of the net.

Forest came close when Matty Pearson ended up diverting a cross towards a goal and had to be bailed out by Simon Sluga tipping it wide.

But Sluga would be beaten, as Lolley took aim from outside the box and saw a shot go in the back of the net despite Sluga’s attempts.

Sluga would be called upon in the final stages of the first half, as the Croatian goalkeeper denied Joe Worrall.

Forest took the lead 12 minutes after half-time, as Lolley was able to cut inside and lash a strike beyond Sluga.

Luton struggled to break through in response, with Sammy Ameobi and Lolley both having efforts blocked. On a rare break, James Collins would see a strike denied by Brice Samba.

In the final minute of normal time, Luton conceded a penalty when Sonny Bradley handled a free-kick, and from 12 yards, Grabban beat Sluga as Forest wrapped up the victory and condemned the Bedfordshire side to another away defeat.
