Luton Town 2 Fulham 4 – Down But Not By Any Means Out

Osho in actionOsho in action

The curtain came down on Luton’s Premier League season but the enthusiastic scenes at the end as the Hatters fans cheered the players and families told its own story. A memorable season that went to the wire, with so many incredible matches.

The game itself a fairly typical story of Luton competing, but just showing too many defensive frailties which were ruthlessly exploited.

A lot of fans missed the excitement right at the end of the first half as they had gone to get a beer and enjoy the sunshine when Fulham got an opener on 43 minutes.

So the foul on Chieo in the box and Carlton’s expertly taken penalty were missed. As was the rapid Fulham second.

Fulham got a third early in the first half which was swiftly responded to with a low free-kick from Alfie.

A lovely moment for James Shea when Rob substituted Kaminski on 76 minutes to give the long-serving stopper some Premier League minutes.

And it was clear in the lap of appreciation that this was the final Luton appearance for a number of key players. A great ovation for Ross Barkley, Dan Potts, and Luke Berry.

In less than 2 months we will be back in Championship action. Never has a club been more together.


Town: Kaminski (sub Shea 76); Ogbene (sub Townsend 76), Doughty, Osho, Mengi (sub Johnson 17), Hashioka; Lokonga, Clark (Mpanzu 70), Chong, Morris, Adebayo (sub Woodrow 76).
