Luton Town 2-1 Bristol City: Elijah Adebayo seals win for Hatters

Top scorer Elijah Adebayo was Luton’s matchwinner as his 12th goal of the season earned his side a 2-1 home win against Bristol City.

The visitors went close early on when home goalkeeper James Shea was beaten by an inswinging corner and Kal Naismith did well to head the ball over from underneath his own crossbar.

It was the Robins who enjoyed the better of the early stages and following yet another corner, Han-Noah Massengo drilled over the top from the edge of the box.

Luton finally started to feature as an attacking threat in the final 10 minutes of the first half, winning a number of corners through the hard work of star striker Adebayo.

One of them was swung in by James Bree and Glen Rea met it at the far post only to head disappointingly wide.

Luton did take the lead after 42 minutes from their first effort on target as Bree took a short corner to Naismith and received the ball back, looking up to send over an excellent cross that Tom Lockyer rose highest to power a header past Max O’Leary.

In the second period, Bristol City striker Chris Martin – an ex-Luton player – saw a header loop into the gloves of Shea when under pressure from Naismith.
