Luton Town made their mark again, but this time they couldn’t do a miracle either. This time, the small team from Greater London hosted another pleasant surprise team of the season, Aston Villa, who is fighting for a place in the Champions League and is in 4th place.

However, for a half-time it seemed that there would be no surprises here, with the Birmingham team playing football in a significant field advantage in the 24th minute Ollie Watkins took the lead with his hit. And the 28-year-old striker scored Thomas Kaminski’s goal for the second time shortly before the end of the half (0–2). Until the break, Luton didn’t even have a shot, let alone a goal attempt – only three were inaccurate.

After the turn, Villa showed a rarely seen thaw: first Tahith Chong embellished, then in the 72nd minute Carlton Morris he beat Emi Martínez by sending a ball in from a free kick into the net (2–2). After the break, the Birmingham team posed almost no threat to the home goal, Luton gained a psychological advantage that was spectacularly manifested in the game…

In the 85th minute, after a similar combination of free kicks, Morris could have scored the winning goal, but this time – under suspicious circumstances – he shot from 8 meters to the bottom right corner.

In the 89th minute, the head of the attacker could have really worked because of this, because the home defense fell asleep when Moussa Diaby’s pass seemed desperate at first, and he came on as a substitute Lucas Digne and ahead of Teden Mengi, he headed into the net from the left corner of the five (2–3).
