Luton Town picked up a point towards their top half aspirations after a 0-0 draw with Reading.
A contest against the play-off chasing Royals would end with neither side landing a decisive breakthrough. Nathan Jones’ side would create more shots on target during the game, but it was ultimately a game that would not see a goal.
The result sees Luton move into 12th place in the Championship table with 4 games of the season remaining.
Off the back of a weekend win over local rivals Watford, Luton began as the brighter side. They would come close as a deflected strike from range by Elijah Adebayo was held by Rafael.
Later in the half, Kazenga LuaLua shot wide before Jordan Clark narrowly volleyed wide from Kal Naismith’s cross.
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall then saw a strike kept out by Rafael, with James Bree then seeing a free-kick sweep wide.
Reading ended the half brighter, as George Puscas headed wide after a few shots were blocked.
A more open second half saw chances fail to come about with regularity. Reading weren’t far away from scoring when Ovie Ejaria’s shot deflected wide with Simon Sluga a spectator.
In the final stages, chances began to surface with more regularity. Rafael made a flying stop to keep out George Moncur, with Glen Rea heading wide on the rebound.
Sluga then had to make key stops to keep out Yakou Meite and then John Swift’s free-kick, before Rafael denied James Collins in added time.
But there were no winners to be found. The result was ultimately a stalemate for Luton, whose efforts to secure a top half finish take them to Bristol City on Sunday.
