NEWS: Last Time We Met - Luton Town

The Sky Blues travelled to Kenilworth Road back in October...

13 March 2018

Tonight, Luton Town are the visitors at the Ricoh Arena in League Two action as the Sky Blues look to get back into the play-offs.

The fixture was scheduled to take place a few weeks back, but due to the run in the FA Cup, the game was re-arranged for tonight.

A win for City would take them back into the top seven and a win for Nathan Jones' side would see them reclaim top spot from Accrington Stanley.

The two sides last met back in October, when Mark Robins side made the trip to Kenilworth Road and it was a memorable day all round.

City made the perfect start in the game as Marc McNulty headed home from Jodi Jones cross in the first half to put the Sky Blues 1-0 up.

Luton applied the pressure then through the game, as they searched for an equaliser in the game, but the City defence showed why they had the best record in the league and stayed firm.

Then, with a few minutes remaining, up stepped young midfielder Jordan Shipley who stood over a free-kick from the edge of the box, following a red card which had been shown to Glen Rea for a foul on McNulty.

Shipley then scored his first goal for the club, as he fired the ball into the top corner to make it 2-0 with a matter of minutes remaining.

However, the game wasn't done there, as deep into injury time, Duckens Nazon capped off a superb Sky Blues performance to make it 3-0.
