Luton Town Gets First Home Win With 2-1 Victory Against Crystal Palace


Following Jacob Brown’s thrilling late winner that put the promoted Hatters four points clear of the relegation zone, Luton manager Rob Edwards declared that he does not want his players “having a party”.

The Hatters’ first Premier League home win of the season came from a goal by Brown in the 81st minute, but Edwards’ team faces a “difficult” schedule ahead.

“I don’t want the players having a party,” he said. “We’ve done nothing.

“We’ve got nine points. I don’t think that’s anything to be going out to the nightclub and having a flipping disco or a party.

“Enjoy it, but we’ve got to go again. Brentford’s really difficult next week, then we’ve got Arsenal and Man City to look forward to. We’ve got to keep improving and getting better.

“So enjoy the moment, enjoy the feeling, it’s nice. The players can enjoy their weekend. But it’s back to work quickly.”

After losing, Crystal Palace is currently in 15th place in the league having won just once in their last six games.

The game didn’t pick up steam until the second half, although there were a few noteworthy moments during the first half, including the disallowed goal by Odsonne Edouard of Palace after the ball bounced off Luton defender Tom Lockyer and onto the striker’s hand.

Luton was rejuvenated by that escape, and to break the deadlock, Teden Mengi poked home a loose ball in the box following a flick-on from a corner.

However, in just two minutes, Palace winger Michael Olise leveled the score with a masterful individual move that saw him chop inside and curl past Thomas Kaminski from a close angle.

In the 81st minute, Scotland striker Brown gave the Hatters a lead once more by finishing a precise pass from close range made by Chiedozie Ogbene.

Both Eberechi Eze, who hurt his ankle, and Cheick Doucoure, who was substituted off the field in the second half and taken off a stretcher, were lost for the Eagles.

“They are two of our more important players so of course it’s devastating news in a way.” said Palace manager Roy Hodgson.

“Cheick Doucoure’s injury is very serious, we don’t know how serious Eberechi Eze’s is.”
