Luton Town 1 Everton 1 – Elijah Back With A Bang But Still No Win

Goal scoring return for Elijah

A night of high drama, cheap drinks, and near misses as Luton narrowly missed out on beating Everton despite no less than six efforts on goal in injury time.

A VAR penalty in the first half for Teden holding Braithwaite nowhere near the ball was quickly equalised by Elijah. Watford trainee Ashley Young was brushed off the ball effortless, and Elijah showed the Kenny what this team had been missing ever since his injury in the warm-up against Manchester United three months ago. An arrow like finish past England’s number one goalkeeper.

Everton got in our half probably less than half a dozen times in the second half, but it still needed a remarkable finger-tip save from Tomas Kaminski to prevent a second Everton goal.

In to injury time and a superb overhead kick from Luke Berry was somewhere deflected wide. Andros Townsend looked to have won it with seconds to go with a rocket from the edge of the box. But the footballing gods were not smiling on Luton Town and Braithwaite stuck his foot out to send it wide.

One win in 15 tells the story and in the post-match interviews there were signs of frustration from Sir Robbie that the wafer-thin squad had proved the key problem since January.

What an achievement though from our strike force of Elijah and Carlton – 10 goals apiece in the top division. Will we be able to hold on to one or both of them next season?

Two more to go then in the Premier League, and the Hatters army descend on West Ham next weekend.


Town: Kaminski; Onyedinma (sub Woodrow 70), Doughty; Burke, Mengi, Osho; Lokonga, Barkley; Chong, Morris, Adebayo (sub Townsend 80).
