On move to top them to draw

Sunday Sun - - Football -

ond goal to give them­selves some breath­ing space but, de­spite some good ap­proach play, were un­able to break down the Hat­ters, with Jack Bald­win com­ing clos­est when he headed wide from a cor­ner shortly be­fore half­time.

Mclaugh­lin had to be alert again just af­ter the in­ter­val, push­ing Justin’s cor­ner away from un­der the cross­bar when it looked to be drift­ing in.

Lu­ton got back on terms on 68 min­utes from the penalty spot.

Collins’ low shot had beaten Mclaugh­lin but come back off the base of the right-hand post, it fell for Hyl­ton who was fouled by Flana­gan as he took a shot, with ref­eree Lee Probert point­ing to the spot. Collins stepped up to con­vert, thump­ing his kick straight down the mid­dle leav­ing Mclaugh­lin no chance. Lu­ton were re­duced to 10 men just min­utes later when Hyl­ton was shown a straight red card for el­bow­ing Bald­win in an ae­rial chal­lenge. Sun­der­land should have re­taken the lead 15 min­utes from time when Ai­den Mcgeady rat­tled the cross­bar, and when the ball dropped out of the sky some­how Wyke headed over from in­side the six-yard box. Mclaugh­lin made an­other ex­cel­lent save to deny Justin late in the game. And in the last minute of in­jury time, Maguire was sent off af­ter tan­gling with Mccor­mack.
