Luton Town picked up a point towards their Championship survival hopes after a 0-0 draw with Wigan Athletic.

A game of low quality at the DW Stadium saw just 3 shots on target throughout, with Wigan coming closest with a few efforts in the final stages of the game.

With the rewards shared, Luton move back up to 23rd place after Barnsley were beaten at home by Cardiff City. They are 6 points from the spot immediately out of the dropzone, which is currently occupied by Hull City after the Tigers suffered a heavy defeat in a six pointer with Stoke.

A clean sheet at the DW Stadium is only Luton’s second of the season away from Kenilworth Road, adding to one picked up in a single goal victory over Middlesbrough last month.

Leon Balgun and Kiefer Moore put efforts off target early on for the Latics, in a game that saw very few signs of a breakthrough.

Luton were then adamant in the final stages of the first half they should have been given a penalty. As a deep free-kick was worked into the box, Luton defender Matty Pearson was convinced he had been hauled down by his marker Joe Williams, but the referee wasn’t convinced.

The away side would then register their only shot on target of the 90 just after half-time, as a Glen Rea strike was saved by Wigan goalkeeper David Marshall.

As the game seemed to drift out, Wigan would create their best chances to win it. Joe Garner saw a header go straight at Simon Sluga, before Luton’s Croatian keeper made a better stop to keep out Michael Jacobs in added time and ensure the Bedfordshire club returned down south with a point.
