Luton Town vs Newcastle United

Newcastle have won just one of their last 10 Premier League away games, that being an 8-0 demolition of newly promoted Sheffield United in September. They’ve lost their last three in a row on the road, last losing more consecutively during a run of five in December/January 2020-21.

Luton Town vs Newcastle United

OFF THE WOODWORK!!!! Luton strikes the crossbar yet again!!! A glorious touch from Adebayo sees him loop the ball over Schar’s head before playing in Brown, who takes on his marker and shoots. His rocket of a shot beats Dubravka all ends up, but cannons back off the crossbar and is cleared away from danger!

Luton Town vs Newcastle United

Luton has only been ahead at half-time twice so far this season, winning and losing one of those games each. They’ll be hoping it’s a repeat of the former here, but it’s certainly not going to come easily, with Newcastle set to throw everything they’ve got at the Hatters.

Luton Town vs Newcastle United

It’s the Hatters who lead at the break, getting the better of an extremely lively first half following former Newcastle man Townsend’s close-range header. Luton was on the attack right from the first whistle, with Dubravka making two saves from Brown in as many minutes before brave defense from the hosts kept efforts from Almiron, Wilson, and Guimaraes at bay.

After Barkley’s flick-on from a corner was turned goalwards by Townsend, Luton took the lead and sent Kenilworth Road into a frenzy. From there, they smelled blood, with a Barkley piledriver smashing off the crossbar and Adebayo seeing his close-range effort saved by Dubravka. Despite making two first-half substitutions, at least one of which was injury-enforced, Newcastle finished the half strongly, but neither Schar nor Almiron could find the net and it’s Luton who entered half-time on top.

CHANCE!!! Isak drops deep and brings Osho back with him, turning the Luton defender as he collects Trippier’s pass. He then threads the ball in behind for Wilson, but the striker is held off by Bell, allowing Kaminski to dive on the loose ball as Luton continues to frustrate the Magpies!

Wilson holds off Bell before crossing to his left, and an Osho block almost sees the ball drop into Gordon’s path, but Kabore slides across to scythe the ball away from danger and out for a throw!

OVER!!! Almiron is found by Trippier’s incisive pass into the box as shooting space opens up for him. He steps past Osho and pulls the trigger, but his curling effort is a poor one and sails over the bar!

Luton Town vs Newcastle United

SAVED!!! Doughty and Adebayo both twist and turn away from Newcastle defenders in the box, with the latter having a shot blocked. The loose ball comes out to Townsend, who fires a low effort through the crowd that Dubravka sees late and does well to keep hold of!

Luton Town vs Newcastle United

WIDE!!! Lokonga’s foul on Guimaraes earns Newcastle a free-kick, and Trippier swings the ball towards the far post. Schar rises to head for goal, but sends his effort a yard or so wide of the post to Kaminski’s relief!

Luton Town vs Newcastle United

SAVED!!! Barkley drives through the heart of Newcastle’s midfield and finds Adebayo in the box with a well-weighted through ball. He shoots low from close range, but Dubravka gets down well to make the save at his near post!

Luton Town vs Newcastle United

OFF THE BAR!!! Barkley picks up the ball a good 30 yards from goal, and lets fly with a firecracker of a shot that has Dubravka beaten before rattling the crossbar and bouncing back into the field of play! Kenilworth Road would have erupted if that effort found the net!

Longstaff makes a run to the byline and latches onto Trippier’s through ball, but can’t evade the attention of Barkley and the ball ricochets off him and behind for a goal-kick.

Lascelles plays a long ball forward for Burn down the left, but his flick-on for Gordon ahead of him comes to nothing and bounces behind for a Luton goal-kick.
