Luton Town 2-2 York City

Substitute Mark Cullen scored twice as Luton Town came from behind to snatch a draw against struggling York.

A dramatic second half saw four goals and two red cards.

Josh Carson headed York ahead and Emile Sinclair slotted their second, before the Minstermen had Jake Hyde sent off for a challenge on Nathan Doyle.

Cullen flicked a corner in before nodding home to earn Luton a point, and they held on even after Steve McNulty saw red for a studs-up challenge.

Luton Town manager boss John Still told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Boss Still on Luton Town v York City

"I don't think we played particularly well in the first half but we could have been three goals up.

"We started the second half brightly, I thought, until they got two goals.

"As a performance, no, it wasn't good enough."

On the red cards: "From where I was standing I wouldn't have given the first one and I wouldn't have given the second either."
