Luton Town 2-3 Morecambe

Luton suffered their first loss at home since September after conceding a late own goal against 10-man Morecambe.

Jack Redshaw broke the deadlock for the visitors early on before Laurence Wilson found a second soon after.

Luton were back in it when Cameron McGeehan powered home and the hosts then levelled through Steve McNulty.

Morecambe's Ryan Edwards was sent off following a second yellow card but they secured the win when Luke Wilkinson put the ball in his own net.

Luton first-team coach Hakan Hayrettin told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Luton first-team coach Hakan Hayrettin on Morecambe loss

"If we're being honest, we didn't play well first half, fair play to Morecambe they deserved it.

"We showed what we're capable of with our second-half performance but it wasn't meant to be.

"I must say the crowd again were fantastic, they were here in their numbers being vocal.

"As a group and as a team, we are in a fantastic position of strength, it's not all doom again, we can come and fight another day."
