Luton Town and Huddersfield Town played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their play-off tie.

The Hatters and Terriers faced off in the first leg of their Championship play-off, and it was Huddersfield who scored first through Danel Sinani.

The home side equalised through Sonny Bradley on the half-hour mark, in a game that also saw both sides have penalty appeals waved away.

With neither side finding a winner, attention turns to Monday night and a second leg in West Yorkshire, with the winner playing Sheffield United or Nottingham Forest at Wembley on May 29th for a place in next season’s Premier League.

Huddersfield felt they should’ve been given an early penalty after the referee waved away appeals following an early challenge by James Bree on Harry Toffolo.

Bree had a strike well denied by away goalkeeper Lee Nicholls, but although Luton had made positive early running, it was Huddersfield with the opening goal after 12 minutes.

Norwich loanee Sinani received Toffolo’s through-pass, evaded a defender, and drilled a low shot past home goalkeeper Matt Ingram.

Danny Ward had a shot blocked by Bradley, before Luton responded as Cameron Jerome had a header deflected wide.

An equaliser would come on the half hour mark. Jerome won a free-kick just outside the box, and Kal Naismith’s delivery picked out Bradley, who fired a first-time volley beyond Nicholls for 1-1.

Huddersfield-born striker Jerome then got involved in some action, with the experienced striker having a penalty appeal waved away before firing a shot just over.

Ingram then denied Ward after he got a slight flick on a Sinani cross, before Jerome had a shot blocked at the end of a lively first half.

While the first half was lively, the second proved tighter as although Huddersfield saw a lot of possession, there were very few concrete chances at either end.

The Hatters would suffer another injury issue to go with several other injury issues in the run-in, as Lansbury was taken off with injury, but the home side’s defence was able to keep Huddersfield from unduly troubling Ingram.

It all ended up with no winner on the night in the first leg, and all to play for when the two teams meet again at the John Smith’s Stadium on Monday in their return encounter.
